Hi Tyra:

I've heard the Mackies, and the latest version (with the rounded edges) are just fine for your 
purposes. They are still a very good value for what you get, and well-built.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Seeking studio monitor comments

We're evaluating studio monitors for our small (14'x14') audio room---with workstation close-to 
being against a wall.  We prefer to spend $1,500, more or less.

We're focusing on 1) Mackie HR624 MkIIs and 2) Genelec 8030As
Unfortunately, we have no way to test-run either of these---or any others for that matter.

We'd really appreciate hearing comments or suggestions relating to experience with these models or 
any other monitors that might be worth our consideration.

I hope this request isn't out-of-line.
