Studio Monitors

Studio monitors or monitor speakers as they are sometimes called are speakers used for mixing audio during recording and mastering processes, and therefore essential in any recording studio.

Designed to have flat response and produce detailed and accurate sound, engineers and producers rely on studio monitors in order to hear flaws and imperfections whilst recording and mixing.

There are many different types of studio monitors, but most commonly they will be either passive or active. Active studio monitor speakers have internal amplifier sections and are often bi-amplified. Passive models require a peripheral amplifier to work.

Most professional setups will use active monitors, which offer a more defined sound, due to features such as optimised power amps for each driver and more precise line-level crossovers, for instance.

Buying your first pair of studio monitor speakers or upgrading to a new model can be a daunting and often mind-blowing experience.

At PMT we carefully select our range and offer only the best quality speakers at ultra competitive prices so you get the best sound for your studio or home set up at a budget that suits you.
