Barefoot MM27 Gen 2 vs MM45

I have an opportunity to buy a pair of MM27 gen 2's for a great price with sound anchors or a pair of MM45's. Has anyone compared both of these? Which would you choose?

My room isn't huge but it's treated pretty well with GIK acoustic bass traps and it sounds great with my current monitors. It's about an average rectangular bedroom size. My only concern is the MM27's might be too big for it. Opinions?

I love mm45s but in my opinion, the mm27s are just a step up overall. Personally I would go with the mm27s, especially if you aren't using a sub.

That's what I'm leaning towards. I definitely don't plan on getting a sub but a couple extra grand in my pocket doesn't sound too bad either. I definitely don't want to regret my purchase

I went with the 27's and I'm so glad I did - they sound AMAZING! Feels like I'm listening to music for the first time. My only question is how do you guys clean yours? Mine were pretty dusty from the previous owner especially on the cones. They also have some minor stains on them like from sneezing or food or who knows what. Other than that I am so happy with my purchase these are incredible speakers I finally understand what all the hype is about

Dust = swiffer the drivers (so dry dust). No liquids.

Cabinets: drop of dishwashing soap in some water; take a lint-free rag/clean microfiber and soak it in the slightly soapy water; wring out throughly (the rag should be damp but it shouldn't put off droplets -- do this far away from the speakers and dry your hands which most likely will be wet before going to the next step), then wipe the cabinets with it. Repeat until done.
No need for solvents. Just keep any liquid or drips away from the drivers. So make sure that towel is damp not wet (and your hands are dry and not carrying water on them.)

I'm not really worried about the cabinets but some of the drivers have tiny stains and I'm not sure how or if I should try to clean them

The subwoofers are aluminium. Those could probably be wiped gently with a lightly damp microfiber cloth.

The front midbasses are poly/paper. Wouldn't touch those with any kind of liquid.

The tweeter -- well, generally you don't mess with tweeters.

But outside of that, you should contact Barefoot and ask.

Microfiber. Don’t let dust sit on them for too long. I haven’t had any stains on mine though

Did anyone get a chance to compare MicroStack45 to MM27 or MM26?
