    What is the difference between Home theater speakers and real studio monitors?

    But it depends on the Studio Monitors. There are many different types/brands of Studio Monitors like Home speakers.

    Generally, studio monitors are made to take more abuse than home speakers. They are usually more revealing of flaws in recordings than a home speaker would be. Cost is also more of an issue in home speakers - some studio monitors get very expensive.

    Studio monitors are usually not a good choice for the home. Many companies tout their home speakers as "studio monitors" but that is just marketing garbage.

    StudioMonitors are also often near-field as well.
