Considering my last experience with M-Audio I will welcome any and all competition!

Their monitors look intriguing but I'd like to see a better frequency response range. Of course spec only mean so much.

That Quartet looks pretty good, nice to see it have phantom power. I'd seriously consider getting one of these if the price were right.

Those monitors have a great response for a stereo set. If you go with the digital set The DAC is 24/192Khz with a 123db dynamic range. They have very nice specifications. The Quratet has me intrigued aswell, the specs look pretty god for this also.. definatley make a great recording card. There is Phantom power on the Quartet! That is a selling point for me also...

I have a pair of AV-40 monitors on the way, I'll do a mock review, just to let you know what my thoughts are.

Great, It would be great to develop more studio threads and recording info around here. I have been looking at studio monitors for awhile also, though I will say those BLOW5D's definatley have my interest peaked especially with specs like those.

Robscix, check out M1Active MKII and let me know what you think about those. They are the monitors I'm using and am very pleased with them, especially considering the price ~$350-400 for both. To get the detailed specs you have to download the 6mb manual and scroll to the bottom. I swear I haven't heard anything better for the price. I had a whole write-up but accidentally hit the back button on my mouse and lost the whole post.

I have looked at those before and they are a nice set. There are many great monitors on the market but the ones you want offer totally flat response. No coloration. This aids in system translations so when you mix your audio it will sound good on everything from a boom box and car stereo to high end home stereo. This is very important and why you can't really get good results with normal speakers.
I have been shopping for monitors for awhile and I am currently comparing specifications for quite a few sets. I will say that I really like the options on the Blow 4's or 5's but I am pretty sure I want the digital module also...
