New KEF Studio monitors - any good?
Hi, I'm just wondering about some new monitors for my small, 2.5m x 3.5m home studio. I've been working abroad for the last nine months so am a little out of the loop and now I'm back I'd like to get back into my guitar playing! My PC with Pro Tools will be my source and I have an old 120w NAD amp to power the speakers if need be.
The speakers will need to be placed on the desk ideally rather than stands and the rear may be close to the wall as the desk is only 50cm deep. In looking through the forum over the weekend the KEF "LS50" came up and looks interesting, on their website they say: "LS50’s unique technology offers by far the cleanest, most accurate studio-grade performance of any mini monitor.". I presume this has to have some fact behind it or they'd be open to legal threats from rivals? My budget is £1k max so they look to be ideal - the rear port being the only potential issue. Has anyone tried them yet or are they too new? If not what good alternatives are there? I'm open to active models though it would be a shame to waste my old amp, I guess I could "eBay" it if necessary!
Sorry for all the questions, I'm a little out of touch with the current favourites!
Thanks for any help,
