Best Mixing Monitors in the $200 range?
I am looking to purchase my first pair of studio monitors. I know that I am not going to get the best quality in my price range ($200; around 140 euros I guess?), and I am willing to buy used, so I may try to go the pre-owned route and get something that would be more in the $300-$500 range (when new). With that said, what are the best options for me (in your opinion)? I'm asking because all the models I've seriously looked at (from M-Audio and Behringer) have apparently gotten a bad rap from those more experienced than I. I don't have a store anywhere nearby that will let me try out monitors in a decent setting, so I am forced to go by recommendations of others. I should repeat that I know that I won't be getting the best quality, and I am forced to accept that because my budget can't handle a lot of spending on something that gives nothing (financially) in return. So, with $500 (or so...) as my absolute(?) max, what are my best bets? Thanks!
