Have you heard pro studio monitors ?

I have recently turned to "pro" gear . I have not heard a "bright" set of studio monitors yet ? They are not designed to accentuate any frequencies . I have owned many bookshelf speakers over the course of my life and none have come close to studio monitors for my taste . It is an avenue i would suggest to all . Just for the fun of it . And it is sooo much cheaper compared to hifi offerings .I used to think popular recordings were bright . bright used to be a part of my audio life for twenty years ! it is now gone . Finally my ear drums can rest !
I don't know if that carries any weight because on pop recordings they will also play the cut on a car loudspeaker to see how it will sound in that environment.
Russ, I think you've just mentioned, that studio monitors are used as reference speakers and than the material is tested on home speakers and automobile ones as well or to be more precise the material is tested in the most listenable environment per given music.
M Audio 8 inch monitors are pretty amazing IMO. I just threw out the rule book and installed JBL PRX735 speakers in my main listening room and really like them.
Yes, I have owned Adam Audio and heard all the others, ATC, Genelec, Augspurger etc. The best studio monitors I have found are turned out by Oceanway and Legacy Audio.
