Big speakers can be expensive, really expensive. A recent survey gave great choices for those who can’t afford those expensive speakers.
Focus’ Alpha 80 landed the first spot in the survey although they are close to $1000 but hey, still not bad for the quality it gives. The Yamaha HS 8 came in at close second, giving a very good overall balance and a good presence. Presonus Eris E8 has practically taken the world by surprise considering the company does not specialize on monitor speakers. The Eris are an all-purpose model with lots of settings available featuring a pretty good balance and nice looks.
