I just picked up some SAMSON MEDIAONE 3a active studio monitors and so far am extremely happy with them. Crystal clear clarity with a full bodied treble quality. They are not really bass focused but its there in such a way that it will never bother the neighbors. They are also the first speakers i've heard that sound just as detailed at lower volumes as they do at higher which is fantastic for nearfield listening. They did need a day of breaking in when it came to playing heavy metal music but now everything is very smooth and delightfully detailed.
Oh they also dont have heat issues like some active and powered speakers do.
