Summary: As a conclution, if you plan to do recording / mixing on your monitors, go ahead and invest that extra 100 - 150� on those monitors and get VXTs instead of RPs. If this quite doesn't convince you yet, get this. The second time I went to listen to the selection of monitors (and buy a pair of VXT4s), I took my bandmate along, who is an educated and certified audio technician (and the owner of a studio).
"Perhaps the most useful, affordable small monitors on the planet"

Summary: Overall I don't expect to get rid of these in the near future. They are such a good small monitor set that unless I'm in the mood for working with a larger, more powerful system I wouldn't stop using them. Mixes have translated very well, even when I was working in listening spaces that were less than ideal. I don't think there is any competition of comparable performance, size and power that has such an affordable price.
Summary: Got these to monitor LP recordings to my computer hard drive. Got to say that they sound better than any computer speakers that I've ever heard, with a sound comparable to very high quality bookshelf speakers. If desk space is an issue for you, these are a great choice for listening to music through a pC. Note that you may have some noise problems connecting your soundcard audio out 3.5 mm mini stereo (unbalanced) to the balanced xlr connectors (balanced).
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions
