A friend is using Revel M20's with a B&K 305 and they sound fantastic. They retail for $2k, but try Steve at:
I have a pair of Talon Audio Khites that are nearing being burned in. Fresh out of the box, they were the most musical monitors I had ever heard, and they keep getting better (bigger sound stage, more air, more focused). You can tell I am very happy with them, because my home theatre has not been turned on in a week. They retail for $3,000.00, more with optional finishes, and worth every penny.
Best regards, Dave.
Ah, I wasn't sure. I really thought he was refering to the Audiogon rating scale, and I couldn't understand why? Monitors mean different things to many people. To some, it's a loudspeaker to use as a reference to make recordings, to others an abreviation of "mini-monitor" another name for a small speaker. They can have the opposite meaning. Thanks for clearing that up.
