I would have to agree with @Armaegis. These headphones were great at $250, and are incredible at $100. Now, be forewarned: when Visions makes these kinds of discounts it's usually because they bought a bunch of refurbs. They will never tell you this though. I once bought a NAD turntable from them and when I got home the repair bill from Lenbrook (NAD parent company) was still in the box. I got a great deal, but brought it back on the principle that they did not disclose that fact.

Hey guys, does anyone know anything about studio monitors? Like what to avoid and what's a good budget option? My speakers/receivers keep crapping out and monitors seem like a cheaper option since I already have an interface to hook them up to. Cheers.

Yeah, I'm quite familiar with those. What's your budget? How big are you willing to go?

These are probably the most popular monitors in their price bracket:

A step up, I'd consider these:

I don't like to support Behringer because they rip off other companies, but they did a good job of copying Genelec with this:

Or if you want a real Genelec, I know this guy:

I don't need to huge, just something for listening in my music room, maybe crank them once in a while to listen across the apartment as well. Budget is preferably less than $400 for a pair, so I'd probably be hunting for something used

Yorkville, over budget, but it includes the matching sub:

Here are Behringer Truths:

Mackie HR824: (older generation with the passive radiators, which I prefer over the newer MR series)

I've had Behringer Truths for like 17 years. I've been mostly really happy with them, and they image really well. I had to replace a capacitor on one, and every now and then there is a nasty RF interference buzz, so YMMV. But 17 years, that's pretty good I'd say.

Hard to argue on that, 17 years for anything is a great run

Hey guys, big sale at L&M this weekend:
https://www.long-mcquade.com/AtticSale/Winnipeg

Of particular note, anyone looking for some nice high end studio monitors, the Neumann KH120's are $1100 for the pair. That's about the gold standard in that price bracket before getting into the nutty stuff or esoteric European options.

Does anyone here have an old pro audio amp they'd be willing to part with for cheap? There's a dance studio that I helped setup sound for (mostly kids theatre/musicals kinda thing) and one of the amps seems to be on its last legs. Specs that I'm looking for:
2U rack mount
1/4" inputs would be preferable
binding post outputs
100W/ch but we'll make do with what we can get

How many channels do you need? Just 2?
