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. At PMT Online we stock a huge range of studio monitors including Passive Monitors, Active Monitors and Subwoofers by top brands such as Mackie, Adam Audio, Pioneer, Yamaha and KRK.
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.
Here at PMT we cater for any need and budget. Those setting up their first home recording studio might prefer to buy cheap studio monitors and, thankfully, respected brands such as Fostex, M-Audio and Samson make some pretty good budget models that we highly recommend. However, customers can also buy some of the best studio monitors available today, which are used by professionals worldwide and in top studios such as Abbey Road!
