I´m using Alesis Active MKII monitors and i can only recommend it.

But for better monitoring i use Alesis for mixing and mastering and i have also some “cheap” stuff just to be sure how the record will sounds on a non studio stuff (some hi-fi gear). I also use headphones (AKG, Audiotechnica and a cheap Phillips) for some references :)

Mixing and mastering is a pure alchemy IMO :) But as i often say – its not about the studio gear, it always starts and ends between the chair and the desk (i mean the person there) :D

Wish you many luck to pick up the best monitors for your use! :)

CHA!

I am using aiwa speakers and tehchincs amplifier… I don’t have monitors yet :( But for me i think you can make and mixing your music everywhere just if you learn to listen what you hear. Cheers!

Literally just got a pair of Adam A5X’s last week after my old Alesis Active MKII’s started farting. Best thing I’ve ever done. The quality of the Adam’s is on another level. Clarity is immense, bass is solid. Love them.

Can anyone compare A7X to A8X? Is the difference between them so significant?

How good they in reproducing bass? I know, the size of woofer is not so big, but for me it is better to have tight bass than deep and muddy. And also what about mids – are they detailed enough for mixing? I am using Event TR8 now, but for my room they are too big and easily overflow my room with muddy bass.

I’m also looking to upgrade from my Alesis MKIIs, as I think they’re on their way out sadly, and have been doing a bit of shopping around – The Adam’s are definitely on the list, along with the KRK Rokits, but just been taking a look at this review of the Adam AX7 & AX8. Definitely thrown a bit of a curve ball!

I have the Adam A5X’s and they are great, best near fields for under £500 a pair I have used, the bass response is also good – I know people say they don’t go low enough, but imo I think they do. However if you have a bit extra cash go for the A7X’s as I have also heard these at a friends studio and just sound ‘fuller’.

Also if you are looking for some nearfields in this price range, it might be worth checking out Genlecs at well, the university we lecture at uses A8X’s/A5X’s as stereo nearfields and then we have 2 5.1 studios with genlecs and then an ambisonics setup with 24 speakers all Genlecs.

They just sound clear and are very responsive! I got the Adams as the ribbon tweater really brings through the ‘warmth’ of an orchestra. :)

Using A7x here, need a sub if you want to write dance music or music with sub bass.

I’ve got the Sub8 and its great for the size of my room (2mx2m).
