Monitor Question
 
Anyone Here mixed on the Dynaudio BM5 MkIII's....I asked for user reviews the other day...Didn't get 1 response!!! Just want to hear others opinion in there room....I have had them for 1 week now and although I like them... I feel maybe they are a little HiFi....Broke them in well but just want to hear others thoughts as well.

Thanks

Didn't like them either as much as the K&H that I then bought. Thought the same: A little too Hifi for my taste. But that's a looooong time ago, I guess it was the very first model, not MKIII heh

Make a few recordings with them and see if they come out better than your last pair. I know somebody who swears by them, but he also says he can mix better on those than anybody else can mix on any other speaker, so, haha.

Wow Bold Statement!! Thanks guys I really appreciate the feedback...I have been doing some mixing and listening how they translate but I keep thinking there is something to hyped, and also I think I could find something better for the money....Maybe Focal Solo6 by twice the money...

Remember the point of mixing monitors is relative levels. That's where the translation comes from. Pleasantry is just that, a bonus.

If the bass and kick are balanced on the monitors, they should be balanced on every speaker. Little known fact that 90% of translation comes from the mix, not mastering. Translation is the main reason for mixing in the first place. Translation comes from relative levels, and to a smaller degree psychoacoustics (in a broad sense). For example, adding reverb and turning up the treble can make sounds seem louder and bigger yet at a distance. Boosting bass can make sounds seem less loud sometimes. You're not eqing for tone in the mixing stage, you're eqing for effect.
