I'm about to buy my first pair of studio monitors. I made a research 6-7 months ago for getting a pair and I was finally set on the Yamaha MSP5's. I didnt get them though cause something personal happened and my initial budget had to be spend on something else. I've been saving up since then and I now have a budget of roughly $1000. My initial budget was $500 six months ago. Things are quite different now I've been looking through the Genelec's line and I find it quite intriguing. I'm currently looking at the 1029A's and the 8040-A's. I have a chance of hearing the 1029A's at a local store which I plan on visiting in the next few days. Are there any significant differences between the two? Would I do any wrong if I go for either? As this is my first pair of monitors I'm getting I wanna make the right choice. I prefer to INVEST rather getting the cheap stuff first and then regretting it. If you have any alternatives given the $1000 budget I would gladly listen to them. I know also that studio monitors are a matter of taste, but then that's the only thing I know about monitors. Any help appreciated. Btw, how much difference would I hear from the MSP5's and the Gennies (or equivalent)?
