check out the Fostex 6301, the're pretty good. also they look more "pro" than the iLouds, consider that if aesthetics is a factor.

Hey @Delete, I'm looking too. So many out there! As per @tylth, the 6301's look pretty great and get high marks. I'm also looking at the Genelec 8010A's and Adam A3X. Let us know what you decide on, I'm curious...

Huge fan of my Yamaha HS8s with a subwoofer. Nothing beats blind shootouts.

@dshay: thanks for the heads up! Those are NICE looking. Are the subs necessary? Did you compare the HS8's to anything else?

i have the HS 7 now, and compared to the KRK Rokit 5 (1st gen) i previously used, they kick ass. very happy!

@tylth cool, ty for the opinion. Have you tried the Genelec 8010 or any others in this price range?

@bogdan nah, as they would be too small for my taste. i was looking at krk v6 and genelec m040 a bit further up the price range. decided to go with the yamahas after i checked them out a a friend's place. note that the bass port is on the rear, which can be troubling when set up too close to a wall. they are much more revealing than the krk rokits.i feel like i need to remix all my projects now i also like their brutalist look with the screws on the front panel and the white speakercones.

@tylth ahh, that's really useful to know (about rear placement). I've had issues with that in the past. I looked at m040 too but so expensive! Looking at the Focal Alpha 50 as well, did you try that one?

@bogdan the focal cms series is half the price currently, very tempting. if you like flat and analytical sounding speakers you might want to check them out.
