The Genelec's are the way to go; I also really like the Tannoy System 800 actives. Good monitors will cost you over 500 bucks a piece, as a general rule of thumb.

You will probably never need massive low end response or perfomance from your speakers, so go with the smaller Genelecs (1029a)

If you have clients in your room a lot, it is nice to have a recognized name on your speakers.

Go with active speakers, it forgoes the amp matching, cross-over and bi-amping problems.

We have a pair of 20/20's in our Avid DS/HD room for monitoring; and Tannoy System 800a's in our 5.1/stereo audio post (800's for LCR, 600's for LrRr, and a ps115 sub). We don't do any audio work on the Avid, that is what audio post is for; I do find that the 20/20's are a bit bass heavy.


Mime is money!!
