Do i need studio monitors?
I produce electronic music using FL Studio and am currently using my stereo as speakers, what would i get out of using studio monitors instead?

Hi fi speakers colour the sound. So if you’re mixing and producing it’ll throw your sound out - you won’t be able to accurately judge what to do with eq etc. Studio monitors produce a flattish response. You’ll hear things that you won’t with average hi fi speakers. Research extensively what you can get with your budget. It’s all in aid of producing a mix that’s balanced and sounds good on a variety of audio media and systems.

Flat EQ. Your stereo likely has a slightly scooped EQ, so if you mix to it you will be mixing to that specific speaker response. Theoretically, mixing on flat EQ will make it sound good on a larger variety of speakers and headphones.
