So sometime this week or next i'll be running into some money for my project studio, Still not sure how much I will be getting for gear but it will be around the 3,000 range. Anyway, Since I live here in Peru I'm very limited in options so I wanted some help from people out there. I want to keep my speakers in the 1000 range +- . I got some options but I have a hard time narrowing down, specially since some of this I can't even listen before I buy. So here are my options.
KRK RP6 G2 - $500
KRK VXT 6 - $970
Mackie HR624 - $1150
JBL LSR4326P - $1150
KRK RP6 G2 and Yamaha NS-10 Pro - $1080 (I would use a cheap amp for the ns10 but eventually upgrade it)
ATM I work mainly on my music which is House. Though I would love to mix and master any genre since I want my studio to eventually be some sort of business. Of course there will be room treatment since here with a couple hundred bucks I could make more than enough bass traps and purchase some acoustic foam. Also, if you are wondering what gear I got at the moment, very laughable, got my hackintosh and a midi keyboard (E-Mu Xboard 25) hooked up to an oldish pioneer home stereo system (with its speakers and a sub from a home theater surround system) via my internal sound card, somehow I have managed to work with this for a couple years
So if I get the RP6s I would have around 2500 for other gear which is a good thing since at the moment i have basically nothing. My other options seem a bit better though.
what would you do with the options available? Should I invest 1000 in speakers now or go with some RP6s and upgrade in the future? Would you recommend the NS10s at all? any opinion is welcome
