Genelec 8020 - a little over budget

The 6010s are small, but could well be TOO small for the OP.

They only have a 3" bass driver, are very low wattage and don't have much of a bass response.

My suggestion would be a pair of KRK Rokits.

Even the smallest model has a bigger woofer, better low end and higher wattage.

Did any of you read the point where he said he did not want large or loud monitors? :lol:

The Genelecs will blow the KRK's out of the water for quality, the 6010's sound fantastic.

focal CMS40. Incredible for the size. I personally much prefer focal gear to genelecs.

Heard a pair recently........ lots of detail and imaging and decent bass for such compact monitors, under €400 for the pair. I'm very tempted myself.
