I bought these speakers to use for music practice of my vocal jazz quartet (like Norah Jones and Diana Krall) thinking they might also be nice for gigs at people's homes. They blow me away. Their sound quality is amazing and my bass player can't believe how good they sound for their size. I eventually bought an Eve Audio matching subwoofer to complete the set, mostly I did this for gigging. They are not able to produce very loud sounds like my QSC K-12's and matching QSC woofer (of course this is true, you cannot fight physics). Another very minor issue is I would loose the magnetic grills on the speaker tweeters when transporting the speakers. So, I just super-glued them on. Problem solved. Finally, I emailed Eve for more tweeter grills and the were fantastic to deal with. I know there are a ton on near field monitors out there, I spent months deciding. I love these little speakers and you will too. Buy them, quite looking forever at all the options. You won't be sorry.
