Thumbs up Sausages in the ears...

I have had a few monitors in the past including Dynaudio and Mackie and Alesis. Mostly I find them terrible and to be honest they have a cheap midrange sound with no detail.
You are very very right. For my experience I find the mid range of these cheaper monitors lacking and often aggressive at some frequencies. I have a couple of Genelec 1031A here in my workshop. One thing I really can say that they truly have an excellent mid range! If anyone says here that you don't need proper midrange to mix or postmix studio audio recordings, there is one advice: Listen to the CD's of Gregory Porter and hear that the one who did that had sausages in his ears
(Unbelievable that good musicians can be raped like this, in this age, where professional audio really really is affordable)
So, the only thing I can say is to get a couple of Genelecs or other well known proven active studio monitors.

Although you may be right, I think the TS has already made a decision, since the previous post was 9.5 years ago...

Default Genelec 1031A Repair & Healing Session

@ FastFolkert,
You are right, I am a little late
But since this subject is touched a little too less -to my honest opinion- I think I better post my recent results. Had to repair my Genelec 1031A's. A Healing Session has been done to let them work again for the next 10 years. Anyway, A repair was needed after all these years, since one of the 1206 resistors decided to start to crack (took me a whole day to find this, very nasty failure)
Please have a look at the (reverse engineered) PA-Stage. Behind it there is the current amp (original schematics). Beautiful topology, all temp. matched transistor tracking, simply very well engineered.
The original schematics can be found on the web, just google "filetype=pdf Genelec 1031A" and it will pop up.

Enjoy ! ;-)
