Monitors: Yamaha & Dynaudio

Monitors: Yamaha & Dynaudio

Hi all,
I did a small research: visited several stores and listened to different monitors. For now, my options are:[*]Yamaha HS5[*]Dynaudio BM5A MK II

They both sounds great. I think the Dynaudio is somewhat better, but it's difficult to say because I couldn't find a store that has them both. So I could only listen to them separately and in different environments,. (It was easier for me to decide that I like the BM5A more than the BM6A or DBM50, because I could compare them directly).
Ah, and Dynaudio is double the price...

Before I go ahead and purchase one of the options I'd be very grateful to get your opinion. I know it's an ongoing topic- which monitors to acquire - and it's of course a matter of taste/need etc., but nevertheless looking for an advice here.

I listened to both this year in Dallas, Yamaha is just not my thing, the mids were horrible. I've always loved Dyn's.....

I love my BM5a's. I don't care for the Yamaha forward mid.

Another Dynaudio fan here. Although the top end took some getting used to, my 5a's are the most accurate bookshelf speakers I have ever owned. Yea, they are more expensive, but thats just part of the fun.
