Low End High End monitors

Hey guys,

Thinking of grabbing some new monitors. I have a treated room, and everything is good.

I actually HAVE listened to a lot of these but not in a while. I'm hoping to keep the budget between $1-2k.

What would you go for? Options include

Adam A8x
Focal Shape 80
Beyerdynamic LYD8

Or I was thinking of possibly going with A77x or LYD48, POSSIBLY, because it's a pretty big room, and I'd like to be able to turn them up a little for just listening.

Thanks!

Avoid Adam A8X it has a gaping hole in mids

There are no such models as Focal Shape 80 or Beyerdynamic LyD8

I would take a look at Focal Solo6 BE or HEDD Type 07

LYD 48s are great but they dont go too loud

Go passive and get a good used power amp. The ATC SCM 12 and Quested H108 are better than all of those speakers.
