I get great translation on my Dynaudio BM5A's. Not necessarily my first choice--but they're what I could afford, and as long as they keep getting my work done, I'm keeping them.
If I had disposable income, I suppose my first choice would be something exotic like K&H 0300's, or perhaps I'd go passive with Dynaudio BM5's and get the best amp money could buy. I won't go bigger than nearfields because of my smallish workspace.
It truly is a personal decision. The best monitors are the ones you work with most easily in your own workspace and which deliver the best translation to other systems.
