This is a story of the dangers of neutral sound. I always wanted to have that studio monitor sound. It would be authentic and totally hifi. I don't think this is a good idea anymore. I've owned many speakers that had an interesting but not neutral sound. I was happy with large Magnepans. The Magnepans are not studio monitors, but boy they have an airy sound and fantastic sound stage. Now, when I have the neutral and revealing monitor sound, I can't go back to the interesting but flawed speakers. At the same time I am fiddling with equipment forever in order to make the neutral sound more interesting. So avoid monitor speakers, if you are not actually working with sound. I have been using large ESS AMT Monitors for some time. They sound like monitors.
