But I figure there is absolutely no way I can justify that spending 900+ dollars yet on those. But definitely understand what you are saying and thought about that long ago. That will come with time and money. I think the SE530s can do more than enough for me until that day comes. Thanks for all of your help!!!
p.s. concerning the treble roll-off of the se530s, I've heard it's bad, not that bad, fine. is there any way to modify it to make it better or is it something that I'll just deal with. Chances are I won't notice it too much anyway but I figure it's something I could address
Sounds like you've thoroughly thought everyting out and reached an informed descision which is great! Glad I could help in anyway
. As regards combating/improving the treble roll off of the se530's, you can use EQ on whatever source you use, but I believe this does downgrade on SQ, though I've never detected such in my limited audiophile experience. Also what the synergy between the se530's and the sound source you pair it with play a significant factor. For example, the D2 which is airy, detailed, bright etc and has great treble extension and detail should marry well with the se530's which would compliment it. Also, if you use amps, the synergy of those with your hps and source is to be considered. Apart from that, I know little to nothing about studio equipment, but I'm sure that you can really use things in there to address the treble roll off of the se530's with all those knobs and things you can configure and adjust!
