Nice review BTW!
The RL906 is a nearfield and the test was of nearfields.

The O300 and HK310 are really mid-fields - in which case add the Geithain RL944K or one of the others from the RL range

In fact, all Geithain monitors sound almost exactly the same except for bass extension on the larger units and that the "K" ones have a cardioid response and don't throw bass frequencies out of the back like other loudspeakers.

I found this to be true when I was comparing the small RL906 to the large RL901K and kept finding I could not tell which one was playing. It was only when I noticed the difference in the bass that I realised which was which.
