I've always been able to create killer mixes on the A7's because of how they present the center image. I sold them when I had a chance to get the SM9s after I demo'd them, especially because of the 2/3way mode switch option.

I must admit that the SM9's helped me step up my low freq game A LOT, but i'm still missing the mids that my old monitors had.
I'm looking to upgrade to monitors around January, in the same price ballpark with a similar vibe and precision but with clearer mids. The more forward the mids, the better imo.

I'm working in a small to medium sized treated room.

Any suggestions!?
Get the trios, same tweeter as sm9 but mid knocks like an ns10. Bass goes down to 28 for me but not upfront as sm9
