TR8XL or Blue Sky Media Desk 2.1?

So, I had a pair of TR8XL monitors and I liked them a lot but one of the amps busted a few months back. I now have money to purchase a new speaker but am unsure if I should buy a single TR8XL or just buy Blue Sky Media Desk monitors. I would like to just buy a single TR8XL but I don't want my other one to decide to die out on me later on and have to replace it later on. A replacement amp plus repair costs and shipping will cost nearly as much as a brand new speaker so that is kind of out of the question at this point. Will I notice a huge difference between the two monitors? I don't have a place where I can do a hearing test.

Agreed.

I hear nothing but good feedback about this sytem.

A little bright on the highs but they translate well across the frequencies.

You can't go wrong either way, the events are great speakers, but you would want a pair and if you can only get one, i'd get the blue sky..Why are those the only two options tho?

i already have a functioning event and the speakers aren't paired (afaik) so i would only need one. i guess they aren't really the only two options but ive checked up on other monitors in the price range and the blue skys always came up highly recommended

I personally like the event's, its a matter of taste though, neva cared for the smaller blue sky's(the sound small if that makes sense), but thats just me. I think you should try to listen to both pairs, and if you can't, hmm...keep getting ppls opinions, lol, but i think either way you will be happy...
