We also interviewed one of the people who developed the Mackie HR824 monitor. Check out that interview here.
I've been a big fan of the Event brand. The Event Studio Precision 8 Powered Monitor is supposed to be really hot.
There's many pro's I know that use the Adam brand monitors. The ADAM Audio P22A powered monitor looks like a great choice, especially with it's Accelerated Ribbon Technology.
Again, any of the above monitors should make you quite happy and any of your recording studio buddies quite jealous :) Let us know what you end up with and how you like them. Until next time! :)
