I've now had about a year with these. If getting a good mix means one that translates to other systems, and where you can hear everything the way you intended it, then I have gotten my best results ever with these little speakers. Including the Genelec 1031A and 1029/1071A systems I previously used for 6-7 years as an A/B rig (1031As at the console, 1029/1071s at the DAW). Including the 1032As at my former partner's room. Including my Mackie 626s. Including the B&W 805s/Krell power amp I used before that. I could go on. These speakers do not sound "exciting" in my control room. I don't turn them on, as I did with the 1031As, and think, "Wow, these sound fantastic." But- when I load a mix into someone else's system, it sounds right. When I listen in my car, or on an iPod, or wherever...it sounds right. No ugly surprises, even on the low end, like I got sometimes with the Gennies. The other day I was present when an ad agency's creative director presented my Epcot tracks to his client on his iPod/Bose system, with a teeny little speaker, and even there, they sounded balanced and, well, like records are supposed to sound. I would recommend these speakers to anyone. They are very simple to mix on. In fact, they're worth owning even if you have more expensive speakers, if only as a secondary reference.
