The sky is the limit here and more so than computers, it gets expensive in a hurry.Okay, I'll be frank. I spend a couple of weeks in a studio, doing the final 5.1 mix of a film. And sometimes I was listening to some of the music tracks on my home system before taking them to the studio. Each and every time I felt robbed after listening to them again on (albeit) high end Genelec's monitors. So I asked the sound engineers what they would buy instead and they gave me some recommendations for my budget.
They told me not to get studio monitors per se, as their curve can be a bit too flat for everyday listening, but gave me some pointers towards more consumer oriented bookshelves. Not the big brands necessarily, more as to what to look for in a speaker.
I'm kind of glad I followed up on their recommendations.
