Quote Bob Bickerton:
And just to add to the confusion for mixing acoustic music I'd definitely throw the PMC TB2s into the mix. Not sure how they'd compare price wise with the Neuman's or AE22s, but I, and others I've recommended them to, very much enjoy them. They use an infinite baffle system which is different again. Check out Hugh's reviews.
The PMC TB2s are actually a Transmission Line design (not infinite baffle) - a transmission line is like a very long tuned port.
The TB2 are, indeed, very nice units and are in my personal top-5 monitor manufacturers (which are: ATC, Geithain, Harbeth, Neumann/K+H and PMC - the AEs mentioned come close behind these IMHO).
