    Most will suggest KRK Rokit's or M-Audio Bx Series.

    I would follow the KRK recommendation, but if the exchange rate was different I would highly recommend:

    The M-Audio's are the better of the two... but bass will be SEVERELY lacking. They are both basically computer speakers as opposed to studio monitors.

    The M-Audio BX5a would be a better option in your price range.

    Their abit out of my price range right now but I should be running into some cash soon. Do you think rokits are up to all the hype or what? I know like loads of producers and djs have them..

    Also, should I choose the rokits or settle for Audio m, ive learnt more than anything in my time as a dj that the rule you buy cheap you buy twice is paramount

    Loads of people on here will recommend KRK's, but personally I think they are over hyped. Personally I use Mackie Mr5 mk2's and I find them much clearer than any KRK's i've heard. You can get a set of those for about 220 now.

    I totally agree with Conall on this.

    I have tried around 30 pairs of monitors in the sub €300,- range and the MR5s came in top.
    KRKs have way more tainted sound when comparing to the MR5s, and the MR5s tend to be more responsive over the entire frequency bandwidth.
