ABACUS electronics ABACUS C-Box 4. NHT. Presonus Eris E8 - Thomann Nederland. It's a little bit wrong to be enamoured with a pair of objects.
I'm using these in a studio and also with an Allen & Heath DJ mixer, quite close to the walls and generally at a low volume - I've yet to twist the speaker volume control beyond the default 5. The sound I'm experiencing could partly be down to the mixer, but it's gorgeous. The quality of the sound is wonderful though: PROS: Very good low frequencies; Great clarity; Solid build (they look gorgeous); Excellent control built in (the simplicity of the frequency controls and the volume control made me miss them on the genelecs at work which retail at about 7 times the price); Balanced inputs; Excellent sound with older records when used with turntables. 8 Best Studio Monitors Under 500 Dollars (2016) Studio monitoren set.

I was looking for reference speakers and found that Auratone Cubes are back in production!
They really are great reference listening for mixing. They sound so "bad" that they highlight the flaws in your mix instantly, exactly what you'll need! And they are small in size too, you'll find a place for them. I was already looking for used ones on eBay, but you'll never really know how used up they are. And most importantly, the price is almost the same!
