I liked the T5V better than the T7V, their midrange was so sweet. It felt like the was a hole in the T7V's midrange, I don't know how to describe it. The Focals I also really, really liked. After comparing the Alpha 50 with the T5V I couldn't decide, so after coming home I chose the cheapest, which was the Adam T5V. Here's hoping they perform just as well at their new home.

I listened at 1m, and brought mostly Jazz, Jazz Rock, and derivatives and one Ravel CD. Not sure if that's the correct way to test them, but I thought, better to bring something I'm used to listening.

Thanks everyone for your help!
If you're from the Netherlands and don't mind buying used maybe these Genelec 8030's would be a nice alternative! https://www.marktplaats.nl/a/audio-t...reviousPage=lr I Recently bought secondhand Genelec 1030a's and I couldn't be any happier!

Thanks, Tom, but I've already made my choice as I've stated a couple of posts above (I actually had a chance to listen to some speakers). Thanks for providing an MP link, though, much appreciated!
