A year ago tested the ProDesk from BLUESKY (because I wanted to buy them). When I compared the ProDesk with the Dynaudio BM5a I was surprised. A unbelievable diffrence. The Dynaudio BM5a was much clearer than ProDesk even ProDesk had been recommended by industruy`s biggest/ front runner.
So I think the SystemOne (the bigger system of ProDesk; the one I tested) would sound likewise not so clear as the BM5a`s.
I wonderd why BlueSky disappointed me even they had such great reputation from THX and Lucas film. They bought over 50 Systems from BlueSky and recommended them highly. Maybe they got different ears as I. The BlueSky sound is kinda blurred.
The new Genelec serie was still something better than Dynaudio. But the sound had not that much bass. So the danger of mixing too much bass in the mixes comes with them (cause you wouldn`t realize the amount of bass so good) Especially when mixing real CLUB stuff that bounces.
I also saw the new speakers from TANNOY Precision 8D, but didn`t test it yet.
Does anyone use the BM5a`s, BLUESKY or TANNOY?
What`s your comment about them and which one would you recommend & why?

I used a pair of BM6a's for a while (I had them in house for a review) and I was completely in love with them. So I do not have much trouble imagining the BM5a's sounding fantastic in your comparison. Dynaudio builds some lovely speakers. The imaging and clarity is stunning on the BM6a's.
There's a comprehensive BM5A review in the Jan issue of EM Magazine. The reviewer contrasts them with Tannoy PBM8s and Event 20/20s which he normally uses. Raved about the detail and wonderful sound of the BM5A and it received an Editor's Choice award elsewhere in the same issue. But mentioned that mixes made on the BM5A came out a little flat sounding suggesting maybe the sound was just too good. Although the review didn't come out and say it in so many words, it sounded to me like he loved them for checking tracks for anomolies, glitches, and distortions as well as listening pleasure. But not so much for mixing or mastering. He did mention using passive BM15s for daily mastering chores, however.
