I have a pair of Event TR8's and I can't mix anything that translates properly!!! I've been using them for a long time now, have changed my room, treated my room with help from the acoustics guys, changed my listening position.....and still! The funny thing is....my mixes sound terrific on the monitors then when they get to a different pair, my car, my stereo....crap! I think the TR8's probably fall into the category of sounding pretty good, but not good for mixing. It sounds like there is a hole in the low mids to the low low end. I can't wait for my NS-10's to get here. I got to mess with them when I was at a big studio here in Chicago. I tried them combined with B&W's. The difference between them was a matter of mainly "brightness" and low-mid/low end response. The B&W's sounded a little more like a really high-fi stereo with tons of clarity and the NS-10's sound a little ugly, but very very revealing. The song translated like a dream between the two though. In the NS10's you could kinda imagine what everything would sound like on a high end system and you know what it would sound like on an average system. Sorry for the rambling about nothing guys. I can't say this stuff to my girlfriend or else I get a blank stare. Feel free to comment.
