    lol ...... tv monitor

    i think have thoughs confused with high-end studio monitors

    most studios use monitors called nearfields to attempt to get a clean mix without any coloration from the size and shape of the room ....

    next time you're on google or bizrate ...... look "Studio Monitors"

    your usually 2 monitors and one sub .......

    I think he's talking about monitors for visual purposes. I don't think he's talking about audio monitors. If you're talking about visual monitors then its cause they want the extra space to work with

    With two monitors you can multi task easier, you can have two different things displayed on two screens at the same time, so you don't have to keep minimizing.

    Or, depending on your graphics card, you can turn your screen resolution really high, use scrolling features, and/or get 1 huge 21+ inch monitor. If you go with a CRT you can find them on eBay for under $100 easily.

    They're technically called Displays. Other slang: dual-head, dual-monitor, etc, etc.
    People usually use multiple displays so they can see more at once - for example, Reason and PT at the same time, or both the Mix and Timeline views in PT.
    If it sounds good, it *is* good.
