The past few weeks I have been looking at Pro-audio stuff (mainly Behringer) to put to use at home. Amazing prizes, and possibilities often not available for HT. It started off when I was looking for a way to do RTA, and bumped into the cheap Behringer ECM-8000 microphone. Yesterday I went to a local music store, and bought a high-quality mixer (UB-1002) together with the ECM-8000. That was the cheap part, mainly to (finally) do some decent RTA. While being in the shop I heard a demonstration of the Lexicon MPX-550 on some active monitors, a very impressive piece of equipment to say the least! The effects (flange, reverbs, tune-pitch, etc.) were truly awesome, and that with only two speakers. I thought this would mean $$$, but it was quite affordable (389 euro, 260 GBP). I didn't need much further convincing, so now I have high-quality, adjustable podium/hall/live-concert effects (and much more) to stereo sources. When I get my yearly bonus the coming month, I will very likely add some (active) Mackie 624's or Genelic 1030's to this stereo setup. For the time being this will be my way of doing HT (Pioneer) and stereo (Mackie/Genelic + Lexicon). I am very much looking forward to this solution!
