Buying studio monitor speakers.

How studio monitors differ from speakers.

Studio monitors are a must for anyone building a home recording studio. Although home speakers appear similar in design to studio monitors, there are very real differences. Studio monitors are designed to have a flatter, clearer sound. They also have multiple power amplifiers, powering the bass, midrange and treble separately. With studio audio monitors, engineers can hear each part of the recording clearly and easily find possible flaws in the mix. In contrast, the speakers you listen to in your home have a brighter, more varied sound. While home theater speakers are clearly better for listening to the final product, a studio monitor is ideal for creating music.

When looking for the best studio monitor for your purposes, consider Best Buy. We carry an assortment of studio monitors from different brands and at various price points. In addition, we have a great selection of home recording accessories, such as speaker wall mounts for powered monitors and other kinds of audio devices. 

Getting the best from your studio speakers.

Studio monitors are an essential element of any home studio, but they are not the only tech you need. To edit your rough mixes, pick up some audio editing software and download it to your laptop or desktop computer. You can also use an audio interface to connect your condenser microphone to your studio speakers and laptop. The audio interface is an especially important device, as it converts analog sound from microphones into digital audio. An audio interface will help you capture clean, accurate sound that you can then mix. You can substitute your computer’s soundcard for an audio interface, although keep in mind that the soundcard has very real limitations. Lastly, cables are a key component of any home studio. Best Buy has a strong selection of A/V cables to connect your gear.
