Hey,

 

What kind of equipment do you have (I'm not talking about headphones since there's another topic)?

 

Would you have any recommendations?

 

I considered buying this, but it's a little too expensive ...

Hey

 

i use KRK Rockit 6 generation 2, and i like them a lot as DJ / home listening speakers. Very powerful and accurate sound. 

To alternative, I have another pair of "mission" hi-fi speakers which sound very different : less precise, but i also like how they sound.

I've got the Rockit 6's as well, but the 3rd generation.  Love them!

 

Big enough sound that I can move them into the bigger area of our house and they still sound great (when the rest of the family are away for a night or two - which isn't often).

If you have possibility try to get Rockit 6 VXT. I have heard VXT 8 and they were amazing, but 8 is porobably to big for "small rooms".

I'm on Mackie MR5 MkII. Cheap low-end monitors but I like the sound. Isn't worth investing in expensive monitors with the room I'm in. The accoustics are shit and I dont have the space to fix it, but I'm content as it is right now :)

I am not a producer or a dj, so I don't use monitors at home. I listen on bower and wilkins VM1. It's 5.1 set, but i switch to stereo when listening to music. I run it through yamaha receiver using spdif or hdmi depending on a source. I've been looking at yamaha 5 monitors few times, but never got around buying them..

Using Altec Lansing ACS340 2.1 multimedia speakers, powerful enough for the small place I'm living in at the moment.
