Focal trio 6 be vs genelec 8351


i did a quick forum search on this topic and had a few results but not enough votes convincing which is better. Im currently using the Focal trios and they sound dam good but cant seem to find a local store that has the 8351 on demo to hear. Has anyone heard both in a treated room and can give some pros/cons for both monitors ?

Their both great and at this point personal preference. Do you want soft yellow or white.

Genelec 8351 beats the Focal SM9. I have no idea why but they do.

Apparently it's because of the coaxial design. Oh and the 8351 also produces much the same bass response of the SM9 but also tighter and more defined.

Since the SM9 is discontinued and hard to find, and the Trio6 being seen by many as either superior or inferior to the older SM9, get a chance to hear those 8351s. I'm planning to hear a pair soon. Apparently the best nearfield monitors at this price range.
