Need surgical nearfields for critical mixing..Presonus Scepter 6 or Fluid Audio FPX7?

Both are in the same price range. Has anyone done a comparo on these two cutting edge Cocentric near fields? At +- $1000 a par which would you recommend or is there something else out there at this price range that you would go to as a no brainer?

If you want surgical, I'd prefer ribbons over domes.

Is 1000 for a pair really enough to get the THD low enough to call them surgical? People in the high end forum corrupted my views on monitors Im now under the impression that you can’t get anything really good for less than 5-10k.

I would also like to have an answer to this. I am looking at either Hedd Type 05/07 or the FPX7.

I work mostly with dialogue and it appears to be that the FPX7 might fit the bill a bit better because it appears to have better mids than most.

THD varies with frequency and level. If you don't crank the speakers, you should be good even with cheaper speakers. However, I would always try to find independent measurements of maximum SPL at a given % distortion.
