    How are they versus the Vanatoo and JBL 104? The KRKs do not sound good at 60 db

    To be fair, I can't name something in the price range that is definitively superior if you need something small. The KRK Rokit 5 G4 are...

    The Vanatoos too. Along with the JBL 305 and KRK Rokit 5 G4. There’s a lot of good tiny speakers now. Even that JBL 104 thing isn’t too...

    I found a great deal at Guitar Center for a used pair of Dynaudio BM6A. Unfortunately, the price was too good to be true. $600 +...
