only your ears can decide what is best for you and your application. My ears chose ADAM monitors.

Save another £100 and cross your fingures that you will find a pair of Mackie MR8's

I duno if i just became a musical genious or these things really give you the exact sound that is being made.

All my tracks sound pretty well on everything from car systems, hi-fis, laptops, headphones.

A very dramatic change from the Alesis Mk2s

Well i got them for about £470 from http://absolutemusic.co.uk/.
Dv247.com where doing them for £400 dilivered but the only sent one out as they didnt have another one in stock and the one they was faulty. SACKED!!! Sent it back and a guy Tom from http://absolutemusic.co.uk/ sorted me out on the phone. Shiped on the day and becuase im in n.ireland it wasnt next day but the day after.

Pretty satisfied.

just to jump in before you buy, ill vote for Adam A7s. i havnt heard those mackys so i cant really comment. but adams are glorious :)

check them out, they have a great track record so far, with loads of acclaim.

€699 for the pair on thomann i think
