I wouldn't take the HR624's if there's only such little difference in price with the 824's. Back when I bought mine, it was like 700 per 624 unit, and 900 per 824 unit.blizt wrote:
Going back to the monitors discussion, I spent quite some time yesterday reading opinions on forums and reviews, and to start I have added to my "monitor to hear" list these three:
- Mackie HR824 Mk2 (519 € per unit)
- Mackie HR624 Mk2 (435 € per uni)
- Adam A7X (479 € per unit)
These also fit with my price range and I've read some good feedback but I have to do more research:
- Dynaudio BM5A MKII (479 € per unit)
- Focal CMS50 (511 € per unit)
- Genelec 8030 (511 € per unit)
I've always heard many positive things about Adams, and if I hadn't found the Focals, I would have probably gotten me a pair of Adams, or Dynaudio BM6A's.
Honestly, I've heard mainly positive stuff about Genelec, Focal, and Dynaudio, so I would just try to find a store where you can test most of these models.
If you're in Europe, and close enough to Germany, go to Music Store. Their selection is quite huge, and they always have a low price.
I've been dealing with them for about 15 years now, and saw them grow from "local big" to "European massive", but they still treat their customers with respect,
even if you have problems with gear.
Just ignore the occasional crap frustrated-musician-seller-guy-that-doesn't-know-sh!t-about-what-he's-talking that works there. You have them in every music store...
