I can say for the price I really think that my Edirol MA-10D's are the best studio monitors ever since when I compair other monitors around the same price range like the M-Audio StudioPro 3 the specs for the StudioPro 3 aren't near as good as the MA-10D like example the biggest difference is the Freq response. The freq response for the MA-10D is from 45Hz to 35kHz -2db. The M-Audio StudioPro 3 is only is from 100hz to 20Khz +/- 3db. The MA-10D has digital inputs so you can use optic-fiber cables and coaxial connections too. The M-Audio StudioPro 3 you can't do that it only has analog inputs.
