I mentioned on a few recent shows that I’d be getting some good monitors for making music. I just got the Yamaha HS80M speakers in today and they sound quite nice. I can tell how my old speakers were not quite giving me the real picture on what was going on.
What’s the difference between monitors and other speakers you might ask. Good question! Monitors are meant specifically to reproduce the sound accurately. The manual for the speakers made a great analogy. Listening speakers are like glamour shots while monitors are like getting the original pictures without touchups.
Anyhow, here’s a picture of the new setup. The old speakers are going once I get a few new cables in. What am I supposed to do with my secondary screen though?
