First, I live in Northern Maine at the end of I95 just before the Canadian border. I'm only doing research and will not likely be making a purchase until my professionally designed CR is completed. This could easily be a year or two in the future. Auditioning monitors here for recording and mixing, once the room is completed, would require a lot of purchasing, shipping and postal charges even though I'm sure my final choice will depend upon my room. I'm looking for a shop where I can listen to and compare units like the ATC SCM25a, Focal SM9, Barefoot MM27, Quested V3110, Genelec 8250, jbl lsr6328,... well, I think you can see where I'm going with this. I am willing to travel of course and expect to go as far as MA, CT even NYC and over to Canada as well. I'm thinking that a maximum, 500-600 mile radius from here would be a sufficient catchment area for my trip. This will take some significant planning and time for me so I want to start identifying as ideal a listening room as possible, with the available stock to try out. So if anyone has a suggestion about specific shops/rooms or even some other ideas, I'd love to hear from you. Internet searches are not helping me much. It would be a kind of working vacation for me so it wouldn't be out of the question to hit many shops on the way and plan my search accordingly. @kmetal ????Hey K! Any thoughts?
