Hi,
I need to buy a monitor (powered speaker) for my Roland RD-700NX piano. It is going to be used at home only. Any recommendations as to what I should consider? My budget is about $400. Thanks!

I got this little pa/monitor for my 300 (last post) : 300 nx

I'm sure someone will come up with better answers but this is within your budget and works great.

Thanks for that link Becca! How do you like you EuroliveB205D now?

With monitors like this, do you need one for each channel (L/R) or do they all handle stereo?

I really like it. It's small, simple, versatile and really powerful. I'm pretty sure mine is in mono with only one. I'd like to get a second one. smile So for stereo definitely get two. You can also plug in a mike and other speakers/monitors into the Eurolive at the same time.

I think mono is fine too. I just didn't know as it seems they have L/R inputs but only one speaker. smile

You need a proper pair of Stereo monitors to get the best out of the 700NX ... you also need nice looking ones because you have yours set up in a nice enviroment. $400 really isn't going to get you the 10 inch cones you'll need to reproduce the bass of a AP without a sub.
