    I got the HS5 I think, they're very good, I'm not sure about the monitors in the OP. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    Good luck with picking the pair you want!




    but IF YOU ARE JUST STARTING OUT -----> and don't have a professional point of view on how to treat your room, you really shouldn't pay that Mich for a speaker. I'd spend cash on a lower tier speaker, and concentrate on the required acoustic treatment for your room mode. Good acoustic treatment can be as expensive (Even more expensive) as a great speaker, and is in my opinion crucial when the speakers best possible performance is expected.

    I know you might already have a hold of your room acoustics, but I think its a mistake alot of people make when starting out with mixing - buy expensive speakers without having a proper listening environment

    interesting post. I would say that among the speakers I've used, genelecs gives imo the most realistic sound, showcasing the most frequencies.

    I already used HS50M and they're pretty good, but I switched with a producer friend with KRK Rokits 8'' from G2 and the most difference was with highs, I feel the highs from KRK are smoother, more pleasant, but Yamaha is top, I like this brand too. I am very happy with my KRK Rokit 8'' pair.

    I've been using the Genelec M040s for a few years (around $1600 for the pair), in not-so-great rooms - they're purpose built for this (in the form of EQing options made for battling troublesome speaker placement, like on a table and/or close to a wall, as is often the case). Not that they somehow magically negate the need for treatment, but I guess they're more suited for this kind of home studio setup. SOS review here: Genelec M040 |
