I don't have them yet, but hopefully will soon. For the LONGEST time I've been wanting the Mackie HR824's, but couldn't afford them. I've also looked at some strong competitors of that level like the KRK V8 Series 2's. I had the KRK V6 Series 1's but sold them as soon as I bought them. Money trouble...LOL! I'm wanting 8" drivers for a bigger sound, deeper lows, etc. I'm also wanting silk drivers for a smoother crossover range. Possibly front porting for small room environments too. Titanium are too harsh for my ears. I look for monitors made by engineers and people that use their own designs, like KRK. It says something about the products. There's a good chance I might be FINALLY getting the HR824's within the next few weeks, but deals with some "fishy" ways of getting them.
So what are you all using for studio monitors, speakers, headphones...etc? I'd like to know
