I believe we use these at work: ... io-monitor

There’s a pair at every bench and we run them with Steinberg UR44s where we can add stereo reverb. A memorymoog sounds glorious through them. I don’t like the glossy black tuxedo look but for the price they sound great.

These new Adam monitors were reviewed rather favorably in the new Tape Op. I'd get the bigger ones if you can afford them - $500 a pair!
I was so intrigued by all the positive reviews I read about these monitors that I went and bought myself a pair. I like them a LOT and they are very flat. I've paired them with a sub and a decent crossover and my monitoring set up sounds like never before.

The Presonus Eris speakers look more in my budget. Been looking at Edifer too. I don't play LOUD, I just want something that can handle the lows without crapping out. If I could get a pair for less than $250, I'd be pretty happy. At the price range, is it even worth it?
I got a set of these last year for synthing and recording and general dicking about. They sound great to me, but admittedly I haven't auditioned any other speakers in my set up and I might have unreliable ears.
