So, I was randomly looking for various things on a music website, and decided to just look at studio monitors. Then I went on to search for whether people used the ones I use in their (home) studio. Mine are a set of B&O Beovox S45-2. I think they are from the late 70's or early 80's and retailed at around £180 back then. I read a few people saying they do well enough for studio monitors (I have no comparison besides small Logitech desk speakers). One guy said they are pretty balanced and tight, but I don't know much about these things.

Here's a little more info from https://www.beoworld.org/prod_details.asp?pid=666:


CODE
Beovox S45-2 Passive Loudspeakers
Large photo
Manufactured: 1978 - 1982
Designer: Jacob Jensen
Colours: Rosewood, Teak

An exceptional little bookshelf speaker of hi-fi quality with a frequency range of 38 - 20000 Hz and less than 1% harmonic distortion.

You will find these speakers regularly recommended on BeoWorld. They have the same height and width as the lesser S35 speakers but are 3cm deeper and 1kg heavier. This small size difference makes an immense difference to the sound though. The extra filler drive unit adds hugely to the all important midrange sound and this is, to many users' ears, the best balanced bookshelf speaker made by B&O. What it lacks in ultimate bass, it repays in accuracy and tone. The optional floor stand is elegant and effective and worth hunting out. A capacitor change may be needed to make an old pair sing but you are very unlikely to be disappointed by purchasing a pair of these.

For those in search of more bass, S75s are the bigger brother but lack the sonic purity found in the S45.2. To beat these in this range, you need M100s and a bigger house!

Linear phase sound reproduction. Speaker units include a 20cm woofer, a special 8cm Phase Link unit, and a 2,5cm dome tweeter. Volume 25 litres; weight 7kg.

Optional accessory
adjustable aluminium pedestal
Price in 1978: £174.00

Eventually I do want to upgrade of course, but if an upgrade to say a pair of Yamaha HS7 doesn't make a difference, then that upgrade is pointless and I would have to go to a higher priced level of monitors.

Any of you guys with more experience that can tell me where my B&O Beovox S45-2 speakers land in comparison to actual studio monitors? smile.gif

I decided today to work on a practice log of sorts. Still working on some things to it, but I wanted to share it for you guys to have a look at, suggest things to improve it etc. Feel free to use it yourself too smile.gif

Any suggestions for things to add...throw them at me smile.gif

YouTube had auto-played me onto this video while I was walking around my house cleaning a bit, and I recognized the music, and I had to check what it was about, and I thought that there was actually some interesting bits and explanations in this video smile.gif



Also, seems these following videos seem interesting too smile.gif
