Re: Speakers for Home Rig

If money is no issue,, Meyer Sound HD-1 is probably my first choice, along
with some larger Klein und Hummel active speakers. This stuff rules. ADAMs
are also nice, though not cheap either.

Stay away from cheapo stuff like Behringer and co.

Genelecs tend to be expensive and mid-heavy. Nice-sounding upon first
listening, tiring upon longer listening sessions.
