Genelec 1032 vs Genelec 8050

I'm thinking to upgrade our monitor system in postproduction studio. We work mostly acoustic music - classic, pop.
Do you have experience with this monitors? Which pair you can recommend and why?

Thanks a lot!

i only have experience with the 1032 a's and have to say there wonderful. They dont really have a "midfeild" mon so this was as close to it as i could find to fit into our postproduction room. I do mainly pop / hiphop but the clarityof the sound is unbelievable and im sure a upgrade like this would not be regretted.

now if i only got paid for these endorsments lol.

Not a direct comparison. The new 8050 replaces the 1031. 1032 is not near field but more mid filed. While the 8050 are damm good, I think I would prefer the 1032 if you have the room size for them will be also be using something else smaller for true near fields.

Thanks guys,
I'm still thinking about.
And there comes another possibility too - what about Dynaudio BM 15A on almost same price and very good reviews.
Seems it's sound quality is enough good, but may be in a different way?
