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.
