These are VERY accurate for $500. Probably due to the DSP alignment of LF and HF driver. If you are tired of playing around with other sub-par monitors and if you have out grown your KRK, Behringer, M-Audio, Mackie, (insert budget brand) monitors. These will be a step up. Heard these at the San Antonio Sam Ash and I was sold! I also take engineering seriously and RTA tuned these to my control room. It's nice to find monitors that take what I do just as seriously for a price I can easily live with! The 7 inch LF drivers do a good job on the bottom and the ribbon does great on top and the mids are clear. My only complaint is they still have some of the same cheaper build materials as their budget rivals but they sure don't sound like it!
