Alt speakers and headphones

Hello Tchad,
Are you comfortable working on a single pair of monitors? Or do you still work on an array of sets (NS10, Audix?) beside your 'work horse' pair.
What about headphones?
Do you mix on headphones sometimes when working binaurally?
Big thanks, Doug

I check on a few systems when I have doubts.
I have a cheap micro system set up in the studio and a little iPod player but I'm fairly comfortable now with my Linns.
I rarely listen on hp's but certainly would when doing bino stuff.

I'm thinking about upgrading my moniters- the linns are too steep

Hi Tchad... thanks and welcome.

I'm thinking about upgrading my monitors.
The linns are too steep. Got any cheaper recommendations?

Also do you keep track of the level you work at?

I'm loving my neve 5316. Are you using the one at Real World as a big set of preamps and just using each channels Direct outs?

peace....I agree about hip-hop being a new and free musical area to work in....i'm having alot of fun with those kind of tracks.

Before I got the Linns I was mixing on NS10's (w/o the felt ring tweeter) and a pair of Audix Nile Fives, powered by a Macintosh MC 2105 solid state amp, my favorite amp for near fields to this day.
I'm not familiar with many new types so I can't really offer you more specific advice .
Speakers are so personal anyway, almost every speaker I was told to try by someone I respect, I didn't like (except for the Audix which jp turned me on to). You have to find your own way, but I can tell you that when possible, try them out for at least one or two weeks before you commit to purchase. If you still like them after that, your probably on to something.
I don't know what 5316s are. Are they the broadcast Neves at RW? They're great.

Hello Tchad,
I don't quite understand what you mean by that: "w/o the felt ring tweeter"
Thank You.

Older models of NS10 tweeters had no felt ring. It's visible on the later versions.
