For nearfield listening, I think Audioengine A2 speakers are just amazing. They put out really sweet sound and with accuracy. You can hear just about all instruments played in the music. Mid detail is very pronounced too. Set these close to the wall and you will get respectable amount of bass.
Have you any experience with the A2s and the Microlabs SOLO6c? Or the A2s with the Audioengine P4s? Thanks!
