    I just want to know if i can get decent results mixing with these monitors. I know they are not studio monitors but they are very good speakers. Anyone has any experience with these? are they flat?? thanks for your help

    If flat is what you want, then British is the way to go. KEF and B&W speakers are known for their "flatness". I have a pair of KEF 104ab speakers. They are +/- 2db from 50-20K Hz and +/- 5 db from 35-35K Hz.

    They are fine speakers. Like any monitors, you must know how they interact with your room.

    Really not all that responsive to your question, but I have a pair of 602's on the way to me right now. I'll be using them in my living room, not my studio, so it's really irrelevant. I'm just excited is all . . .

    I used to have a pair of B&W 601 Series 3 until they were stolen form my house and i played some mixes back on them.

    This is what i found:

    - very smooth topend
    - need a tonne of juice to get going. I was using a bryston 4bsst which that night of the robbery i took to a friends house to hear the current speakers i have now( Amphion argon2 which i later ended up buying off of him)

    the bottom end is tight and weighty as long as the amp is good.

    Use good speakerwire and the definition is amazing.

    I later found a review on them used as a studio monitor. Check online

    good luck
