Got offer to swap my Yamaha HS8, HS8S & 250 € against MSP7 & SW10

A friend wants to sell his studio stuff. I asked him to give me his MSP7 speakers and SW10 subwoofer. He would do it against my HS8 speakers, HS8S subwoofer and 250 €, because back then he has paid double the much than me.

Unfortunately I can‘t do a sound test, because he is not home currently. It is also hard for me to judge, because I got used to my speakers very much.

I can‘t trust the most forums, because everyone says something else. I would do the trade, but what worries me, is that the MSP7s are designed by the same guy who designed the NS10 and I don‘t like them at all, because it is not a pleasure to listen to them in my opinion. My HS8 are the perfect balance between being a honest tool als having fun to just listen to music. Also the stereo imaging is incredible.

A lot of people elaborate on the MSP7 being a step above the HS8 and being unforgivingly accurate, not only because they use higher quality materials. But hearing that the NS10 were originally designed to be bookshelf speakers doesn‘t sound very professional, so it also may concern the MSP7s.

I‘d like to head honest opinions about anyone who has listened to them both or used both excessively. Sorry for this being another of a thousand comparison threads, but the vast differences in opinion don‘t help me whatsoever.

I would only pull the trigger after testing his set. Apart from the fact that they may not suit your taste, there could be something wrong with them too. So just agree to take a listen to them and go with the deal if you like them and they are in good condition. Or else, what's the point?
