I attended a long mixing session where the engineer used the a77x shortly before my purchase. The high end detail on the MBs is similar. They are no Ribbons, so of course the high end has a less dry and less directional quality, but the frequency range is similarily extended (and "hyped"). Matter of taste. The smallest Focals seemed all around better, but they are twice as expensive. Since I was looking for very small monitors and really got sick of my hs80s in my tiny room, the Turbo4s were the best choice in their price range (vs 6010s, VXT4s, HS50s, A3Xs, MSP3s). Out of these 5, they had the cleanest low end, clearest mid range and most extended high end. They translate well and when I listen to the mixes I make on them on my old HS80s they sound much better than what I used to mix on those.

MusicTech magazine did not exactly give them a 5 star rating,as they said their stereo imaging is not quite as good as the Focals.
According to the currency conversion from Euro to U.S. dollars,these monitors are not all that cheap,but cheaper than the Adams & if the Turbos do in fact,perform at least as well as the Adams,then they would be a good deal.
These monitors have only been around since November of 2011 & they are very scarce on the internet...so I'd be very cautious about buying a pair for myself,at this point in time.
There are no U.S. retailers that carry them as of yet apparently,but they do have an office in California....I'll keep my eyes peeled for these speakers & see what develops...
