Re: Thoughts on Behringer Studio Monitors (2030 and others), active and passive

I had some behringer pro audio gear in the past. The pmx2000 pieered mixer sounded good, but lacked in the amplifier department. No bottom end sound compared to some others I used. I would also point out that getting into an Atmos setup with discreet ceiling speakers is money well spent. I was a professional DJ for ten years, and I've been into home theatre since stereo/before surround sound. I can truly say Atmos is the first thing that has impressed me since the inception of 5.1. Seriously; 5.1.2. Is far better than 7.1 or anything before it. You can get a pioneer VSX1131 for under $300 on eBay. Do that then get speakers to go with it. I would also point you in the direction of JBL Northridge, or studio series stuff. You can get it cheap used, and they sound great. Hope this helps

Great initiative, too bad i live in Thailand . Shipping (and tax) would cost too much.

For what it is worth. There is a thread on the passive version of these over in my forum.

http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...ifference.html

If you read the thread you will see that there is a pair being offered up for a free demo. They were used as a test bed for comparing the quality of crossover parts. And the demo was set up to allow people to hear for themselves what type of differences can be had from higher quality parts.

after reading a lot on the net i think i will buy the 2031 active speakers. i already have a set of active speakers(linkwitz pluto) and the behringers could be good for a 5.1 set up as rear speakers.

I would stick with the B2030P when using the lower teir receivers and supplement them with a sub when you can.

I did not buy the receiver yet so still time enough to look for one that can work with the 2031P.
How about the Pioneer VSX-1020-K ? I can get one for a good price.
Or can someone recommend a (inexpensive) av receiver that i can use

Actually, the 2031P model is passive speaker. However, it is also a 4 ohm speaker, and the VSX521k is only rated for 6 ohm speakers. That means it would probably work, but you'd risk overheating or damaging the receiver (or just going into protect mode), especially at higher volumes. Not a recommended combo. Look for speakers that are 6 or 8 ohms instead.

Hello,
Welcome to HTS. Unfortunately, you cannot use them as your AVR lacks Preamp Outputs. Preamp Outputs appear on the VSX-1121 and models upmarket of it. You can use the non Active Behringers, but I am not sure the 521 has enough power to drive them to their full potential.
Cheers,

Re: Thoughts on Behringer Studio Monitors (2030 and others), active and passive

I was wondering if anyone could say how the Diamond 9.1s compare to these? I can recall where now, but I do remember reading somewhere that people found the 9.1s quite flat and thus suitable to be used as reference monitors, but I'd be interested to know if anyone has any thoughts/experience on that. The 9.1s are around 99 and the best I could probably find the 2031Ps for is around 150 (or maybe even 170).
