High end monitor decision SM9? MM45?

Hello all,

I am currently looking to upgrade my studio monitors, I've been with Focal for sometime now and love the way their equipment sounds. My room is moderately treated with bass traps and paneling. My budget can afford anything up to the SM9's, I have heard great things about the Barefoot mm45's. Does anyone else have an opinion?

my room is 11 foot by 12 foot with a window nook already bass trapped, walls and roof panneled

The rumor is they are not making the SM9's anymore. Many love the Trios even more that have more SPL and solid bass. Seems like a no brainer.

why not look at Genelec 8351s, HEDD Type 20s, Neumann kh 310s, Focal Trio6s are swell as well but i found that you need to be a bit further away from them than the comparable 3ways
