ADAM A7+Sub 8/10 or ADAM P-22A's ?? (need2knowASAP)(post-GS srch reading)

Hi guys-
About to plunk down for some (barely) used P-22A's, however Guitar Center has a 20% off deal tomorrow morning... and they carry A7's.

So my question is, forgetting about price differences, which of the two would you recommend for improving my mixes of electronica, house and dirty synth techno? I've been mixing on JBL 4328's (both with and w/out sub), Genelec 8020A's, and some home stereo KEF's for sanity checking.

I liked the way the A7's sounded at NAMM, but I'd need the bass for the detailed bass/sub-bass work I do in my genre, so I'd have to add a Sub8 or Sub10 to them.

I've never heard the P-22A's, and I wouldn't be able to before purchasing. (a trusted seller at least, so no worries there)

If my objective is better mixes, but also only having one set of monitors to also produce on... and my genre is minimal tech/acid house primarily... what do you recommend and why? The sale is tomorrow, so let 'er rip!

Ps.. I've done an exhaustive GS search on these...but am hoping that now that more time has passed, folks have been able to A/B these two pairs specifically...

now or never...with 60 views i KNOW you guys have opinions... fire away!

Should this thread have been in the 'high end' forum instead maybe?

Thanks again all. I'm about 10 hours away from making a decision...

well, for those of you in the future buying ADAM's, I went with the P22A's, and am not looking back. A7's sounded nice, but not quite nearly in the same league as far as total clarity of detail in the highs. The bass rounds out really sweetly on the P22's as well....enough so where I won't need a subwoofer 99% of the time even while mixing house music.
