What can Studio Monitors do for you?
A common question about studio monitors is: aren’t they just regular loudspeakers? Well, in some ways they are. They differ from regular home loudspeakers in three ways. The first is that most of the time they are active, not passive. Which is to say that they have amplifiers built in to power the drivers. In the better models, there’s one amplifier per driver, which means that the crossover can also be active, allowing improved control of the crossover topology. The second is that sometimes they have different connections. In addition to the usual RCA line inputs (usual, that is, for active speakers), some have balanced XLRs and some support such professional standards as Dante, which provides distributed digital audio over IP using Ethernet cables. And finally, there’s a different design emphasis: with studio monitors it’s all about accuracy, with relatively little attention paid to styling.
So if accuracy is at the very top of your list of loudspeaker requirements, perhaps you should check out some studio monitors.
