Monitors, is overkill possible?

I´m going back and forth with the idea of buying these überhifi speakers for monitoring for tracking and mixing purposes. I´ve yet to hear speakers more accurate than these, and I´ve heard Lipinski´s and Duntech´s plenty of times.

But... this isn´t for mastering. It´s for tracking and mixing of mainly rock and metal, MAYBE some jazz every now and then.

Could I be overdoing things and should just be content with my BM5A´s? Could I use 10kEUR better?

.... I´m not even sure what I´m asking here anymore ....

You should spend it on education.

Good monitors in a well treated room is far more desirable that amazing monitors in an accoustically poor room, so perhaps your budget would be best spent balancing this equation.

IS it a really big secret or are your willing to share your über hifi brand?

Get new converters if you haven't yet. The Dynaudios are a good bang for the buck, maybe after this some good room threatment and new monitors then.

I understand your dilemma, and in my own opinion it may be money best spent elsewhere. I have no idea what your current studio setup is (whether, like most have already said, you have a quality room, converters, outboard, etc.), but 10,000 Euros could buy so many wonderful toys/treatments/anything.

The issue with so many pieces of uber-top-end gear is that you are paying thousands more for what often amounts to a miniscule difference. Yes, the tiny differences may add up over multiple track counts. Yes, sometimes that tiny difference is exactly what you need. But whenever a decision like this comes into play, I cannot help but think of the four great compressors I could get for the price of one Elysia. Just an example, but you get the idea.
