    Default Monoprice Studio Monitors?

    So apparently monoprice has started making some really interesting items. They now make Computer monitors & Studio monitors. I was wondering if anyone has used these. The few reviews on their website have all been positive. I'm actually in the market for some new speakers because I managed to destroy the crappy PS monitors that I've been using a while ago and its keeping me from doing proper mixes. Anyway tell me what you think about them

    They're just rebranded Energy Take's.

    For the price you could do worse, and the fact that they're bi-amp'd is pretty cool.

    It may be a rebranded M-Audio BX5. Specs are the same.

    I think they're more likely to be the Energy.

    Some of Monoprice's other monitors are Energy.

    Let us know how it works out for you. Thinking of getting a pair when I run into some money. Whenever that will be.

    I'll definitely keep you guys posted. Hopefully I can order some tonight. I'm getting tired of not being able to properly mix and put out new sets

    I got a chance to listen to a pair today. Build quality is pretty descent. Definitely an upgrade from M-Audio AV40s. But not exactly KRK Rokit 5 sound quality. For the price, can't complain.

    Most probably not. The cone in the pictures seems to be a different material, and redesigning the circuitry for the HF level switch would be too much of an effort for a company like monoprice...

    Well thats good to know. I wasn't expecting Rokit quality. I'm gonna buy a pair next week. It'll definitely be a step up from the computer speakers I was using.
