Nothing is more important in a recording studio than a proper set of Studio Monitors. Studio monitors come in a variety of configurations with many different options. Active, or powered studio monitors have built in amplifiers, where everything from the power amp to crossover is included inside the speaker, and ready to rock direct from the manufacturer. Passive (unpowered) studio monitors use an external power amp, giving you the option to customize the setup of your monitoring rig.

Studio Monitors come in all shapes and sizes. Large studio monitors such as the Barefoot MicroMain26, Focal Twin6, and ATC SCM45a offer multiple drivers for low and mid frequencies. The size of the woofer determines the range and clarity of bass and lower midrange frequencies. These are very impressive sounding, always a client pleaser, and best suited to be the “mains” in your studio. Smaller Studio Monitors such as Yamaha NS10s or Auratones will usually include a much smaller low-frequency driver, or none at all, and focus more on the mid and high frequencies. Some studio monitors even include onboard DSP for acoustic management.

It is advisable to have a variety of studio monitors. Smaller studio monitors are ideal for getting the consumers perspective, they tend to imitate the sound we are used to hearing in our car, boombox, or computer monitors. Larger Studio Monitors are best for getting a feel for the low end, and airy top of a mix. This is best for translating to a larger hi-fi sound system like festival PA, or club environment.

Adding a subwoofer to any set of studio monitors can help dial in the low-frequencies. The Genelec 7050b, Adam Audio Sub10, or Neumann KH105 are great for any genre of music. With smaller studio monitors that don’t include a low-frequency driver, the sub frequencies can be overlooked, they can really muddy up a mix, and can be overbearing when listening on a larger system. You can add a switch to your system that turns the subwoofer on and off, giving your smaller studio monitors the ability to compete with their larger counterparts.

Be sure to use multiple sets of studio monitors to check mixes, and practice A/B between consumer speakers and professional reference monitors. Pair your studio monitors with a monitor management system such as the Dangerous Music Monitor ST, or the Mackie Big Knob, to make switching between sets of speakers or bypassing subwoofers easy.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
Matthew R.
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
James P.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
Noa L.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
Robby T.
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
Jake D.
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Rob M.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
