narrowing the field further (as you have to do!)
It seems to be between the Fischer Audio DBA mk II's and the J-Phonic K2 DSP's.
From what I've been reading, these both seem to offer pretty much what I'm after at a decent price.
Question though; how on earth do I get hold of J-Phonics? The Sensaphonics site doesn't seem to work based on the links I've clicked.
re the Sony's mentioned; great though they presumably are, I have a feeling they're not aimed at the "pro" market really... remember, I don't need a "great" sound, I need an "honest" sound;
I'm mostly mixing and evaluating my own multitacks rather than listening for pleasure.
