Event Alp 5

I'm curious if anyone has used Event Alp 5 speakers?

The dvcreators seem to like it.

I love this line from them "You’ll also hear why Event monitors are chosen by more recording professionals than any other brand. "

I don't know anybody who owns Event monitors. Use to be JBLs were all over the place, but now days there are a ton of other options. For the money, I've heard from several engineer friends that Truth Audio monitors are the way to go. I've already spent my money on monitors (Earthworks 6.2), but based on their recommendations, I would certainly look at the Truth audio line.

Monitors

Pretty much all monitors will work well for you. its all about learning your monitors and how they interact in your room that makes the difference. even expensive monitors in a lousy room will yield lousy result. and inexpensive ones in a good room will yield good results but only if you know how your speakers translate to the real world. sometimes a monitor 3 inches from a wall will sound drastically different only 8 inches away. especially if it has a rear firing port. all the event monitors I have used (mainly the old 20/20s) sounded good and when you get accustomed to their tone then its all gravy. but that is the key. "Learn your monitors" same goes for headphones. in the last 20 or so years I have spent literally tens of thousands of dollars on studio monitors (from NS-10s to Meyer HD1, Genelec 1031,1035 KRK 7000 and Martin Logan just to name a few), and I can tell you that there is no "Magic Monitors". pick one set thats fits your requirements and budget and learn them and how they sound in your room. listen to alot of movies, commercials as well as your CD's (not MP3)to hear the characteristics of the speakers and the room, then just emulate what you hear.The key to great sound is in knowing that difference between what youre hearing and what you want to hear, and how to bridge the two.

Hi Wayne,

I think you're correct. This statement was direct from the Event site and is no longer on there. Interesting because it still says that on pricegrabber http://musical-instruments.pricegrab...rs/m/22730808/

On another note, awhile back Sweetwater of all places put together a cool little Flash preso "10 Tips for Better Monitoring" - I think it's pretty well done and to the point. http://www.sweetwater.com/feature/monitoring/

I have read somewhere that Genelec holds something like 40 or 60 % of the highend monitoring market... But of course there are many more home studios than big pro installations. Anyways, the aim of Genelec is to make all of their monitors to sound the same (true and accurate), just the maximum SPL and bass extension varies with the size of the speakers.

Dreaming of getting midsize 3 way Genelecs some day, have the 7071 sub already...
