Dynaudio BM5A's or Paradigm Mini Monitors: Purchasing new reference mixing monitors
I have listened to both and I am confused. Both sound amazing,
The BM5A's seem to have more focus on the mids and they are forward quite a bit. They have incredible stereo imaging, more detail in the mids than the Paradigms but them could also be a bit hard sounding or ear fatiguing?
The Paradigm Mini Monitors just sound fantastic and they make all program material sound wonderful which could be a bad thing when mixing. They are very smooth, nice big full low end and not flubby, great stereo imaging and could listen to these for hours. The Mini Monitors are home hi-fi speakers and they are designed to make music sound good at home of course and they deliver this in spades.
If I were just going to listen to music, I would pick the Paradigms in a heartbeat. They just make everything feel right, like the first time you record an acoustic guitar through a Neve 1073, where you don't ask why the sound is focused a certain way towards a certain frequency range. The Mini Monitors are very natural and make music sound better to listen to than any speaker of this size I have heard. But that could be why they are bad for mixing right? Becausae they sound too good and my mixes will then not sound as good elsewhere????
I'ts rather puzzling. I don't want to get both. Anyone with expereince mixing on these and could enlighten me as to what may work out best in the long term please give me your opinions.
Thanks Gear savvy folks!
