Quick decision, what would you take?

A pair of KM184's for $1200 or a Blue Kiwi for $1300.

Well, without knowing what you want them for, I'd have to say 'neither' too.

I'd take a pair of 414's for versatility (used, $1200), or a pair of Gefell M300's for accuracy on guitars, overheads (used $1200 - 1400). Or a Coles 4038 just cause they're great.

Like I say, depends what you want'em for. But I don't think the KM184's are at the top of anyone's list for anything, and the Kiwi I just don't know that much about. THough I love my Blue Dragonfly for percussion and drum duties.

I'm so glad i found this site, so informative, but don't worry about what i need them for, just seeing what you guys would do.

I'd say knock over a couple more liquor stores and try a pair of KM-69's... which in my most biased and absolutely unhumble opinion bury both the 184 and the Kiwi without hesitation or remorse.

As always... YMMV.

Peace
