Hey guys -- was just browsing Guitar Center's website and noticed they were having a President's Day sale this weekend. Looks like each store will have unique sales, but what stood out to me was the $49.99 Alesis Elevate 3 Studio Monitors. I know a lot of the audio folk on NG are working with tight budgets, so I thought I'd point these out!
Granted, these are not going to hold a candle to higher-end monitors, but the reviews across the web seem generally positive (considering the price point), and they're sure to be an upgrade from cheap laptop/desktop speakers. Couple that with GC's free shipping, and you have a ridiculously cheap way to get a set of entry-level studio monitors.
I'm debating grabbing a pair myself just to have something a little more portable!
