1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    What do you consider "reasonably priced"?

    VFM either means:
    1. VFM Audio, a manufacturer of speaker cabinets and bookshelf monitor speakers.
    2. VFM, an acronym meaning "Value For Money."

    I'm guessing the latter. Without knowing the particulars of your setup (interface/DAC being used, specifics of your room, acoustic treatment, type of source material going through the monitors, tracking duties, mixing duties, mastering duties, active monitors, passive monitors, etc.), I would say the simple solution would be Yamaha NS10's, or KRK Rokit 5's. They're both readily available, pretty cheap, and each come with a comparable, although different, set of compromises.

    Bear in mind what monitoring is for, and then make your decision. So you probably want a pair of speakers that sound like budget hi-fi speakers, and a pair that sound like desktop computer speakers. All sounding pretty affordable so far isn't it? :)
