thanks for the input, I wanted to try out the twins too but theres no place around me besides like 100+ miles away that has it. Aren't these monitors supposed to be extremely flat? Also, theres another thing that I wanted to try it was the mini maggies I've heard them with a really transparent dac (anedio), and the dealer's 200$ receiver and it had the detail and all but there was no body to the music at all.
Also, dac requirement for the solos / twins warmth? flat? any curves on the eq?
room width is about 9 ft, length is about.. 18-20
I know theres sound reflection while using speakers but with a width and a room length like that near field shouldn't have a problem right? I'm not a professional mixer or one at all so I just want the best out of my music.
Twins vs Solos vs Maggies (maggies require an amp + dac), also has anyone heard the sm11's? theres a good deal that I just passed by @ 4k on them.
Lastly, aren't solos and twins class D amp'd themselves? So in essence, as you said about the passive speakers + amp should sound better right? So thats where the maggies came into thought.Edited by AuraBullet - 10/26/12 at 12:10am
