I monitor with the Genelec 1030's.
I know what some posters say about the top end. These are bright monitors but I have gotten used to them. I find it best sometimes to steer toward a slightly brighter top than I'd like as it seems to transalate.
I'm sticking with them as I cannot afford anything else right now, especially as a total house rewire has come in at around

I'm a Tannoy guy myself.  I just heard the Tannoy Eyris DC1. Thier "consumer" speaker.  Absolutely lovely sounding.  Very natural sounding & revealing of details in the mix. I think they might be the same as the Precisions with nicer wood.

The KRK's have never been my cup of tea.. but we see a lot of big time mixers using them (even in studios with our wonderful G1 main monitors!! how sacriligeous!)...



which KRK's?  I've seen a lot of guys using the E8 series.  The V series is kind of crap (to my ears anyway).  The E series is a TOTALLY different animal.  We have two pairs here and we love them.

Bob Katz is a supporter of them for mastering applications. But they must be used with a subwoofer or pair of subs.

Definitely the Studio Precision series.

The 8's if your room is big enough, and you monitor somewhat loudly; the 6's if the room is slightly smaller and you listen relatively "un-loudly."

In my personal preference only, I like the new Event Studio Precision series better tha  the new Genelec 80xx series.

I still prefer overall the original issue Genelec 103x slightly for critical mix decisions, but prefer the Event SP's for louder "tracking/overdubbing" monitors.

My everyday favourites are Tannoy FSM.
I never understood what?s the hype around all those small monitors because I always find them to sound small... or boomy when the designer tried to let it sound bigger than it is.
But then I use NS10, too, very seldom though - maybe two or three times per mix to crosscheck balance. The rest is done on the Tannoys.

B&W Matrix 802 Series 3's with a big beefy QSC Reference amplifier.

All of a sudden, it was as if someone pulled a bunch of cotton out of my ears.

Focal SM-8 user here. Best nearfields I ever used so far. In recent years, I had the Adam S3A, Tannoy Ellipse 8 IDP.

The Focal are just in another league. Whish they built mains too...

ATC 200 and 300 are my favorite mains, thought I'm getting something rather exotic in my new CR. I'll post in due time about it Smile
