I have a pair of A2's that I use every day. They're on the meter output of my monitor control.

I love that they give both peak and rms levels so you can see the range you have left.

If the whole loudness thing is a concern for you then I'd say they're more relevant than ever. There are probably plugins which can give you a more accurate reading but it's nice to just have some big meters in the studio that are constantly on.

Use a pair here, every day.
Also have a 6 channel Wohler meter patchable to whatever I want to monitor.
