if not using the 1029a's, a single fostex 6301nd serves me well (definitely not as a fullrange speaker though!)

and if i cannot use speakers on location, i'm using an spl phonitor mini to drive my headphones...
Form factor and features/portability of Genelecs are great, but I never liked the sound of the older Genelec line. I was having hopes for the ”Ones” as location speakers.
