Re: OT - Near Field Monitors

Genelec 1019a are the old model substituted by 1031a. They also look 
to this model. I'm used to work with Ns10S and with someTannoys (I dunno 
model, as they were already mounted in the studio I work in as a day job,
but they are Huge (seem almost like Pa), and are really flat).
