It wobbles a bit, but not enough to cause any issues or for me to worry about it tipping over. I worry more about the impact from my cat jumping up on it than her knocking it over. When I add a second rack, the 60 will probably go on top of that.

Funny, that was my first thought too. I'm scared for the poor little MPC :lol:

For more static lo-fi drum samples, the MPC. For anything with a newer, crisper flavor, the Machinedrum. I like having the option of "old" sound and "new" sound. A great pair.

The only issue on my 60 is that I haven't upgraded the OS to 3.10 yet, and I don't want to unlearn a machine later. This last year I've been in the process of moving to Canada, and I'm finally mostly settled, starting a new job tomorrow. Hopefully before spring I can get that upgrade (before Mr. Linn changes his mind again about selling them).

That is absolutely beautiful. The only problem is that all of those synths would probably offset the acoustics of the room. And maybe create interference in audio cables.

Do you experience a faint hiss from your Yamahas' tweeters? I recently bought a pair and they hiss a bit even if disconnected from the interface (so no ground problem). No big deal, but I had to move them further away, so it's not in my face

Not that I've noticed, but I've only had them a few days and haven't got everything completly sorted yet. RTFMing and waiting for firewire cables at the mo!

Edit

On closer listening, yes they do hiss. I can only hear it with my ear a foot or so from the speaker, at normal listening distance I can't hear it at all. It is the same volume whatever the level is set to.

Agreed. Perhaps hust a few more pots/sliders though...

As much as I can appreciate all that gear, that's the oppposite of a sexy studio to me. I hate clutter.

Exactly my case. Thanks for responding, this has been bugging me)

In my experience, almost all powered monitors have some hiss. Even my $3k Opals have it a tiny bit if you get real close to them.
