I don't know how many Cambridges there are, but besides the original one in England, there's one in New England (Massachusetts).

So you have Cambridge Audio in England and Cambridge Soundworks in the US.

I'm with Tim on not spending a lot on monitors for a home project studio. I'm still using Event 20/20s that I've had for 10-12 years. Took me quite a while to learn how they translate, but they're pretty honest and very comfortable to listen to -- no ear fatigue even after hours at high volume.

If I were in the market for cheap monitors today, I'd check out Yamaha HS50M. There's a thread around here somewhere on them.

Listen to this man. Them's wise words.

BTW, I really like the Hafler M5 monitors I have had for 10+ years. Ran them through a Hafler amp till it died. For a while I had them connected to a JBL power amp, but now I'm using some Mackie thing I picked up used. Through all those amps I think they translate really well.

Thought I'd toss the Yorkville YSM1 series into the ring.

They perfectly****fit your budget, and are really good for nearfields in your price range. I've been a happy user of mine for over 10 years paired with the matching sr-300 amp (life-time guarantee has yet to be needed, both amp and speakers still mint). Very clean, good overall balance, non-fatiguing, and translate very well once you learn the bottom-end (or lack thereof, but what do you want in boxes this size?).

You can certainly do a lot worse than Dynaudio Acoustics speakers, you may need to stretch the budget a little though.

cheers
