Hi Kurt, As a MSP5 user myself, I happy to find a good review from you on this monitor. I am pleasantly surprised as well for you to find them to be good in the low end response as well. Care to share with me the room condition where you tested this monitors? How far apart where they and how loud did you tested out. So far I love my MSP5 but still find the low end a little lacking where I had to train myself to get used to. I'll be getting some acoustics foam soon and hope that will help in making them sound better. Thanks again for the review!!
