Studio Monitors 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 monitors in order to hear flaws and imperfections whilst recording and mixing. At PMT Online we stock all the best models, including Passive Monitors, Active Monitors and Subwoofers by top brands such as Mackie, Adam, Pioneer, Yamaha and KRK.
There are many different types of studio monitors, but most commonly will be either passive or active.
Active 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 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.
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. However, customers can also buy some of the best monitors available today, which are used by professionals worldwide and top studios such as Abbey Road!
