Adam A3x as second monitors?

Hi, friends. Currently I have a pair of Yamaha MSP5 in my little studio and someone sells me a pair of Adam A3x. My question is: should I buy those Adams or better keep my money? Thanks in advance

Ribbon tweeters are a different thing to me than dome tweeters. What music do you make?

Well the msp5s lack the low end but translate great for mixing! I would get a 2nd pair for the lowend! I wouldn't want to produce and mix on the msp5s.
i heard the a3xs and they were cool! The eve audio may be a step in the same direction.

If you want a 2nd set of monitors, you should not get another set of near-fields. you should get a set of 3 ways medium fields.

It makes more sense from a referencing standpoint, at least to me it does.
