The KRK VXT line or the Adam's. Some people like the HS80M's, but i've never heard them personally.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO END WELL
*That's Spanish for: Tell me that you . . . LISTENED to those NS-10M's and made a comparison to the HS-80M's and THEN made a rational, informed decision based on your needs and preferences . . .
But there are exceptions to that point. The first being that some less expensive speakers really aren't all that bad. True, they will never be as accurate as a $25,000 set of B & W 800 series. But the point is that there are A FEW decent models of less-than-a-thousand-per-pair loudspeakers that you can make do quite well with (provided you have the experience and skill to hear well and get a good mix balance, and you have a room that doesn't screw everything up in the first place).ONLY A GENERALIZATION wrote:USUALLY, any loudspeaker pair that is priced under $1000 (USD) that is meant for critical listening is not nearly as useful as it needs to be for a mix engineer to have an easy go at translating mixes.
