100% studio monitors are the best. There are smaller models and you don't need an amp or anything because the amps built in. Get a hum destroyer if plugging directly into pc.

That link of yours, those are very nice, compact and cute looking. Why do I need a small amplifier? Do you have any recommendation for the purpose you mentioned?
They are also listed as ”passive”, what does that mean exactly?...
My JBL Control Ones are 22 years old. The first 14 years they were used in a sound control room at work. When this got decommissioned I got to keep 2 pairs of them. They are great rugged little speakers that do indeed go loud. The biggest advantages they have is that they are quite shallow speakers so can easily sit behind monitors and the reflex ports are front facing allowing them to be placed very close to walls without adversely affecting the sound quality. If anything, it helps to reinforce the bass as that's the only area they are really lacking. A 4" woofer in a cabinet that small is never going to produce masses of bass.

Get a decent set of monitors, and some stands if you need them. They will last you a lifetime.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/JBL-Control...0600634&sr=8-2

An example of. Get a small amplifier you can hide, job done. They have been winning awards for 25 years.

Got recommended these when looking at those JBL Control One. What do you reckon of these?: Renkforce Control 250AMP, being a bit cheaper.
