    I'm thinking reputation might actually be a better way to go. GC's speaker rooms sound like shit. The ones I've been in have all the monitors in random positions smashed up against a wall, randomly placed acoustic foam, bass traps sitting in the middle of the room, and untreated walls of glass straight across from the speakers.

    Chances are, the ones you think sound best are going to be the ones accidentally placed the right distance apart for wherever you happen to be standing in the room that also happen to have the tweeters withing a foot of ear level. And they're probably going to be demo'd using an mp3 CD played too loud through a really crappy speaker switcher.

    FWIW, I think my next set is going to be dynaudio whenever I have the money……good reputation and no volume control, so I don't have to worry about bumping it when I control the volume from something else anyway (currently, my interface…by then, either a big knob or a dangerous monitor st if I win the lottery or something).

    I am glad you found it helpful, Kosmic has more videos up on Youtube reviewing other gear and studio essentials. I feel like KRK's are all too often the go to monitor on this forum and I wanted to give people a few more ideas when shopping for the first set. Not saying that KRKs are bad but more information when buying gear never hurt anyone.

    KRKs are great for DJing and I only have two pairs of them since I got RP8s for $200 a pair but they are not great studio monitors and you can get better stuff for the price they go for new.

    What would you recommend (New Or Used) for a small room in home set up strictly for practicing? anywhere from 6 to 8 inch.

    For Djing the KRK Rockit 6 RP2. For production the Yamaha HS-10 or HS-5 with HS-10 sub if you feel the need for the sub. Just my opinion.

    if it´s only for djing safe the money and get yourself a decent hifi amp plus hifi speakers. no need to blow that much money only the listen to some mp3s.
