im surprised. I would have thought the JBL TOTL stuff would be incredible. Some with tons of experience will say nothing touch jbl everest or 4365/4367/M2/ or avant guarde ect. I guess ill have to audition them as there's truly contradictory experience about horns. as for the genelec big monitors, sure they are great. I have genelec 1037b but they dont quite match the harbeth shl5+ in the mids/treble, but the bass is excellent and the mids/treble are good, not great though. pick your poison? im curious, what are the modern speakers youd recommend under 10k?
