Though there is strong competition out there, I think these would be my first choice if I could afford to upgrade my monitors right now. They do cost less than the Klein + Hummel O 300 too. If the price was the same I would probably go with the 0300's, but in the US the lower price difference is enough for me to want the PMC's. The Digidesign monitors are also very good as well. However many do not know about them, and we are not sure how long they will be carrying these monitor especially with Digi being bought out by Avid.
