I’ve been using HS7s for a while and I must say I’m really happy about them, it’s impressive how good they are for the price. I have an opportunity to upgrade (budget around $1000 for a pair) so I’m looking for ideas and advice.
My main use is mixing, occasionally mastering. I have a small room, but properly treated. Although I have a subwoofer, I don’t like using it and I only use it for cross referencing and double checking so I’d like to get monitors that have a deep low-end (not loud, just deep in the very low range). Anything that doesn’t reach below 40 Hz wouldn’t be ok, although this figure is to be nuanced according to the actual frequency response curve on a graph.
I am also considering keeping my HS7 and gathering more money for a better upgrade if that would allow me to get something closer to what I’d like. The idea is to keep these monitors for as long as possible. Unfortunately where I live there is limited choice in stores and testing is not a convenient option so I’d rather look at the big names rather than exotic brands.
Any ideas for me?
