Those monitors are both plenty good if your room is good and if you understand them. Try the monitors, work on them, see how it goes.

Weiss is good stuff, but I'm no fan of digital eq. Sold a Weiss eq mk-ii to Bob Katz, as he's a big fan and it suits his style of work and sound. Bottom line, it's not the gear someone else has that you should be focused on, it's the gear your need to help your clients and solve real problems for your chain.
I am sure I will have to do a bit more work on the room with a pro acoustician or learn how to do a little measuring and evaluation on my own to understand the bass response a bit better. The room is actually 2 rooms combined at 13ft wide and 28 feet long but only 9 foot ceilings. Based on Katz book I think I have enough AD/DA with the hedd-Avocet-Rosetta-TC6000 and PT. I am studying his block diagram example. Has Barefoot released the monitors that you use. I noticed that they say coming soon on the website.

From this point as a rule I will work with what I have, but I must say that anticipating the future has also served me well, as all of the recent gear purchases were made with the idea that oneday I would take on mastering.

Thanks for the input..
