A couple days ago I went to a new Guitar Center that opened up near by to buy some new strings for my acoustic. So I was just browsing around and i went into the 1 of the studio rooms. They had a variety of monitors over there. I was listening to a couple of them I really didnt like the tonality. One of the employees ask me if I was interested in buying a set of monitors, i told him that i am intrested in buying all the time. He played me all of the sets they had, I wasn't really thrilled with most of them they had. He advised me on a set of Yamaha NS10s(told me to look on ebay and whatnot), apparently they discontinued them because of the cone was made from a now extinct tree he said, also he said they sound very "reproduced"...as in clear. I told him that i would do some research and check them out.
I started looking on google about these drivers, i'm reading and majority of the knowledgeable people say they **** & and that they are too peaky and harsh as well as they dont extend lower than 80hz. Also read some comments like "if you can mix on these monitors they will sound good on any"....
Anybody have had experiences with them? seems like just an Hype.
ps: sorry for such a long post, but i thought the back story might be of use
