The narrowed down monitor choice...

So the question again. After recently checking out the budget, I narrowed down my possibilities.
Two systems left for consideration, and I would really like to know what you think about. I hope even Bob Katz will jump in.
so 2 systems
Genelec 8040 and later add 7060 (or not add a sub)
Dynaudio BM5a with Bm9s (or again not add sub)

I ask this, because I really cannot decide that which is better. I know it's a personal choice, but tell me what do you think.
Regards Tamas Dragon

I like the 8040s better, they do go deeper in the low end. Im an Adam fan but still like the new genelecs.

Have you heard either of these for yourself? You really should.

btw the sub is something you can add later if you feel the need to. Also consider the bigger 8050's (you may not even need a sub)

This is low end - both of those cost too much money.

Get a nice pair of NHT M-00 with a sub, Mackie 8" or KRK 6".....

Bob Katz commented on the the 8040's in this linked thread - and basically said they're the bomb! (As in great).

They're easily the best purchase I've ever made. I highly recommened them! Just go for it - you won't regret them for a moment.

Now let's talk about me... I just hit 100 posts - I'm now officially a gear nut ;0) [insert twenty seven emoticons - none of which are working damn it!]
