Best Monitors

I know monitors are sort of a personal thing but what do you think are the Best Monitors under $300 and why?

Best under $600?

And which strike the best balance between listening/pleasure and composing/mixing for an entry level studio musician?

You might want to post this in Low End Theory perhaps - I think most folks here are using $700 as an entry point for true studio/reference monitors.

My advice is to work a few extra gigs/lessons and save up for a used pair of Adam A7. Some guy sold a pair the other day for $700 here but usually they are $850+. Worth every penny - won't need to buy another pair later.

Another option is a pair of Yamaha HS80m under 3 payment plan.

That would be 3 $233.33 payments.

One thing though, I have purchased some brand new stuff from americanmusical that appears to have been used and/or openbox/demo. Has happened more than once.
