Thanks to all who helped but jus wanted to point out that I live in Singapore and hence some of the brands mentioned are not available and shipping speakers are not exactly very cost effective. The JBLS seems like I possible option will keep it in mind thanks. Other than that any other recommendations?

Yeah those jbls look like they could make a sweet home theater system.

Picked up a pair of used Genelec 8020s on craigslist for $300. I see they usually go for about $400 on ebay, brand new they are $1150/pr. I believe when Best Buy was doing clearance on its Musical Instruments Dept these were going for about $500 new. Very good if you are looking in the small speaker category, and definitely blows away the B&W MM-1s I was using earlier on my laptop.

You can always add the accompanying KRK sub if you feel the need for more bass.

 


Oh god. I don't understand why people recommend these except for bass. I went into GC to buy these, left with a pair of Mackies. A truly overhyped monitor imo

I upgraded from a pair of M-Audio AV40 to RuarkAudio MR1. They're definitely more refined.

http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ErisE4.5 $130 for the pair. Wonder how they fare vs lsr305

Well I just got the LSR305'S from JBL for $225 new shipped from http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ All I had to reference was the deal they had going on in Feb. that was seen on the 305 page in the reviews section. Stoked!

I just purchased the Creative T40 2.0 speakers and I can say that I'm really disappointed in them....anyone else feel similarly ?

They just don't perform as well as I thought.

not sure if anyone pointed these out yet, but Emotiva has great powered monitors ranging in price from 284-474/pair. These all have Air Motion Transformer tweeters, so they are going to be very detailed.
