Taken me to next level

You know when they say the most important part of your setup is the monitors? Well I understand it now.
Im coming from cheaper monitors. Since swapping to these the difference in my mix quality is night and day. They give great feedback. I find myself needing to reference on other systems a lot less now. If I mix on these, then I know it will translate well. It's saved me so much time in my productions.

The speakers are sensitive, show up all transients and details. If your interface is low quality these will really show it. So think about what you are pairing these with to get the best out of them and use good quality XLR cables.

I didn't want to drop the star on quality. The speakers are very handsome and functionally nothing wrong with them. Some people complain about the auto power feature but I had no issues, its very convenient.
But there are just a couple of niggles.
1. The EQ filter knobs have no click at all, not even for 0. It forces you to go around the back of the speaker to line up properly. Even a small adjustment does alter the sound so it would be nice to have a few notches.
2. The screw in feet are a bit of a fiddle. They are just screws with rubber on the end and the head is not fixed. The speakers are tall and heavy! So adjusting the feet is a bit of a pain and l I had one of them fall over.

Really I would say 4.5 for quality and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

Monitors fairly balanced, sound clean and present.
Monitors with beautiful finishes and well made, a beautiful piece with a great look to add its great features.
I love the acoustic construction of this model and the fact that the speakers responsible for the bass and sub frequencies are situated on the side, many monitors have the basses to be projected to the rear of the monitor, which means that in cases where there is very little space between the monitor and the the bass frequencies are affected, with this model there is no such problem!
if looking for monitors with a really balanced sound and with a good construction this is a must have.
by experience I even prefer Focal sound to most of Adam's models, like the A7X and A8X.
