Eric, just a thought - you've talked about the M&K active monitors but at £1400 each they are way too expensive for many people. However, that got me thinking - what about some of the smaller two-way active monitors made by other manufacturers? Specifically, I was thinking of: ATC Active 10 - somewhere in the region of £1200 per pair Genelec HT206 - £700 each They seem to be pretty well thought of although I don't know if you've ever had a chance to listen to them yourself. Anyway, if a power buy could reduce these to somewhere in the region of £500 per speaker then I reckon a fair few people might be interested, especially when you think that for this money you are negating the need for a separate power amp and instead getting built in top quality bi-amplification, dedicated to the specific drive units within the speakers. Matt.
