I am definitely going to do some room treatment with the GIK and other well known absorption products. Having smaller monitors would definitely be a plus since I am looking to do this in my bedroom.

Thanks!
I frequently record a $300 SM7 into a $5000 Avid IO....so I certainly agree that it's not the price of the gear.

However, in your setup, you'd be wasting money buying a $2500 stereo converter, then using it in a partially treated room with $750 monitors.

It's not the absolute cost of the speakers, it's the whole setup. Buying a really expensive converter and using it in an ok chain is silly - you're wasting money on something you're not getting the full benefit of. Unless you plan on upgrading everything else in the near future, spread the budget and get better everything.
