    OK. Here is my situation.


    I have a 15x12x9 control room, that has been designed with the RFZ principles.

    I am currently using a pair of Event PS5's in it (which I hate, but have become very farmiliar with)

    I am looking at upgrading to either:
    Mackie HR824s
    Tannoy System 800A
    Blue Sky System One 3.1


    I am looking for peoples thoughts and opinions on which ones you would pick, and why.


    Thank You

    thank you Kurt,

    but the search does not work with the browser I am using (opera) I will search, but I always get 0 results returned.

    Plus I am lookig for a speciffic opinion on peoples preferences between the 3 monitors I listed. I managed to narrow down the list to those thre by doing my research and reeading the threads, but I am suck at a standstill, and I can't decide, so I am looking for others opinions.

    Brodie,
    There have been pages of discussion on the 824s here that have almost all turned contentious. I am simply trying to keep yet another flame war from erupting. I will say that both Blue Sky and Tannoy have some excellent designs however I personally am not familiar with these specific models. I would avoid the Mackies like the plague.
