Hello all, Right now I am using a decent Yamaha integrated amp, ax-596, and 2 pair of decent but cheap speakers. They are JBL j2060's and Polk T15's. Initially I was just trying to be loud enough so that everybody in the practice room could hear if I played a song. It works fine for that. Sounds okay for general use as well. The issue is I seem to have a very hard time getting a good mix. Mixes that sound great on these speakers don't translate well to the car, mp3 player, other systems, etc. It might be me or maybe some studio monitors would help. I was considering the Yamaha MSP7's. They are expensive but not crazy expensive like a lot of monitors. They are front ported and can push all the way against the wall and you can still plug them in. Other Yamaha gear I have, including the integrated amp and a powered mixer, has been very good. I don't want to buy hype and perhaps there are other options worth considering. I appreciate your thoughts on the subject. Thanks!
