I need some opinions about the Tannoy pbm 6.5 and the Krk st8 passive monitors.
I've always felt that monitors are like shoes. They are a very personal thing.
I've mixed thousands of songs on a pair of Tannoy 6.5's and the mixes still hold up over the years. The nice thing about the Tannoy's are that ear fatigue is near zero. They are just a pleasant monitor to listen to. They do however require you to tune your ears so that you understand whats happening in the midrange. You have to be careful that you don't end up hyping the upper midrange too much.
I tried the KRK st 8's for a week and sent them back. I just couldn't get the mixes on them to transport very well.
Just my .02
