    I have a sad case, I own a pair of Event 20/20, im upgrading everything on my studio.
  4. 20/20's are very good, ONLY if you get the bi amplified ones. the passive versions arent that great tho.

    Samson Resolv 65a with the Samson 120a sub

    I like how they sound. They're not crystal clear and airy, but I can make a fairly decent mix on them.

    I'm probably the only person on this forum with the samson monitors I suspect :?

    Yamaha NS10Ms, Tannoy DMTII, System12's .. Auratones .. The NS10's and the Auratones are powered by their own Haffler P3000. The Tannoys each have their own Haffler P3000 bridged to run 300 watts RMS. It's all connected using 12 and 10 guage copper wire.. nothing special ... just good copper wire. (I don't believe in all that "audiofool" wire nonsense) The Tannoys are bi wired.

    Why are you guys running 3/4 different monitors... Won't that just cause mix issues. Just curious.

    I can see having a second set for mid range / close range difference... but 3 or 4?

    Big Genelecs for mains, NS10s for reference monitors, KRKs or Mackie HR624/824s for near-midfield monitors, and little Auratones for an alternate reference.

    Duntech Princess, on 1200 Lb concrete Plinths. Spectral Amplification.

    I used to run Sherwood Sax Mono Tubes (bi-amped), but had to let them go. If anyone wants some amazing tube monoblocks (not cheap), let me know.

    My room is going surround, and It would be impossible to find another 6 Sherwood amps. They haven't been made in years, and anyone who has them, hangs on to them. Besides, 10 tube sets!!!!
    It's an exceptional amp. It has destroyed my ability to listen to anything else, at any price. I cannot even guess how many amps I listened to until I settled on the Spectral.
    Now the Spectral...I giggled the first time I listened to it. Speed forever plus the detail of my old Sherwood's. And they mate well with my speakers.

    Did you also listen to the Pass Labs X-250. I have only heard great things about this amp. How does it stand up to your joices?

    Sad sad story... :cry:
    10 tube sets!!! :shock:
    My BARANSU's only use 3 sets.

    Best Regards,

    I did not listen to the Pass Audio. I did listen to Chord, Bryston, Halcro, Classe (2 different models), Mark Levinson, Krell, Cello. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.
