Hi all, I'm virtually positive this is in the wrong place, but I don't really see a "right one," so my apologies. Just let me know where it should be and I'll get it moved, but the area discussing recording sound seemed as good a bet as any. I just got back to playing after an extended break (were talking decades, not years) and I'm trying to get some chops back by transcibing a few things. The issue is that in the last few years I've let my actual sound system fall apart. It reproduces ok bass, but not as well as what I want for painless transcription. What I'm trying to find is a reasonably priced (I know, subjective) speaker system with good bass. As far as price is concerned, think Anker not Sonos, but I'm not trying to chince out, it doesn't have to be the dorm room special either. I just want something with true enough bass that I can accurately hear a higher bass fill or a weird B string rumble. For being a player, I don't consider myself much of an audiofile. If you have a strategy you prefer to the typical sound system, by all means do share. Headphones weren't my favorite back in the day, but I've heard good things about some of the new open-backs. I have a guitarist friend who swears by using the line in on his Blackstar, but I've got a decent larger rig and I don't like how it handles a line in from a stereo; would something more boutique with some modeling capabilities like the bass version of the Blackstar be smart? I'm lost here. If the answer is: "get over it, plunk down a grand and be happy it's not two," then so be it, but here's hoping someone around here has a budget fix. As always, thanks in advance. This forum has been a godsend in helping me get going again.
