Buying monitors and setting up my bedroom Studio Monitors

Buying monitors and setting up my bedroom

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } I have a small bedroom studio that is 14x12 feet (and I'd estimate a 10 foot ceiling). Along one of the 14 foot walls is a large window/ air conditioning unit, but there is a shade I can draw to cover it. I want to create the best possible recording environment for less than $2,000. I do mostly electronic music and hip hop so bass response is very important. I was checking out the Dynaudio BM5A's, Adam A7X's, and Neumann KH120's. I'm willing to spend the money on the Neumann's but only if I can hear a very convincing argument as to why they would really make a difference. I'm concerned that I might miss some of the low end detail if I don't buy a sub, but everyone says my room is small enough to not need one.

Anyways, I'm really trying to figure out what the best pair of monitors would be, the best monitor stands, and maybe most importantly the best “setup” in my room. Like what kind of absorption pads I should buy and where should I place them in relation to my desk/ monitors. Keep in mind I have a twin bed and a dresser in my room as well. I really want to pull the trigger in the next week and a half, looking forward to hearing some answers. Thanks in advance!
