    Chaps,
    bedroom studio seeking a modestly priced set of monitor speakers (bookshelves maybe).

    Could anyone kindly recommend a pair around the £80-120 mark which output decent fidelity for (music) studio monitoring purposes? Not second hand / used etc. ... although I'm fully aware of the merits of this route.

    Edirol seem to do a couple of pairs and also Mission around that price tag. I really need the speakers to pack a decent punch without blowing windows out with a wall of sound.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Try a pair of Eltax Monitor IIIs, £70? (can't remember, try Richer Sounds), great sound across the board, although the down firing bass port might be a problem if you want to put them on a stand (the included spikes are quite far apart and not many stands have a top plate big enough for them all to stand on).

    So good that I've bought three pairs last year for a present and to go in the spare room.

    Just over your budget but for the money you won't get better than the Wharfedale Diamond 9.1's. List is £180 but shop around online and you can get for around £150. If you can scrape the extra £30 together it will be well worth it.
