Just ordered a pair of Barefoot MM27's

I just ordered a pair of Barefoot MM27's from Vintage King and just can't contain my excitement for getting these. They told me it's gonna take 6-8 weeks but I just can't wait. I'm upgrading from Genelec 1031's. I'll let you guys know what I think of them as soon as I get them. Yea that's right I haven't heard them yet but no one has anything remotely bad to say about them and have only heard the best possible remarks about them.

Nice! You went big time, eh? Weren't you the guy thinking about Focal Twins?

I dumped my 1031s recently for the Twins, wishing I could get the Barefoots.

I'm sure you'll love 'em.

Yea I was the guy thinking about getting the focals but I recently found all the hype about the barefoots and looked into them. I am hearing some mixed feelings about the focals but nothing but the highest praises for the barefoots. They just look like the right monitor for me and my intuition is telling me to go for them. It's an extra $3600 over the focals but I am selling my studio guitar which is a fender strat deluxe for $900 then my tama starclassic kit for a gretsch renown kit (which I was gonna do anyway) and pocket $1500 plus I am getting $2000 for my genelecs so it is only costing me $2200 out of pocket. Plus the barefoots have already increased in price by 10% since last year and I feel the value is going to be more stable than the Focals and will climb higher and faster than the focals. But it's really all about the sound, the reliability in translation, the ability to mix quickly, and just plain enjoyment.
