Monitor Crossroads. Neumann? Focal?
I am at a crossroads regarding monitor selection; having moved half way around the world. These monitors will be used purely for mixing and mastering.
I was previously a PMC TB2 user and a very happy one at that. I had to sell them for the move. They are also very difficult to get hold of in the USA.
Therefore after deliberating and researching for an extensive period i had settled on the Neumann K120 retailing for $1500, after a multitude of favorable reviews. Now my budget isn't restricted to this price range.
I have also been pointed toward the Focal Solo6 BE, but the price on these is much higher $2700.
I must state, as most people are i guess, after the most neutral monitor. No colouring etc.
So i guess my questions are thus:
Are the Focal Solo6 BE worth the extra money? Some reviews have suggested they dont sound neutral especially in the high end? Are the Focal Solo6 BE as revealing as the PMC TB2 are?
My room is relatively small and i mix varying styles.
Many thanks in advance

So, unless you can afford the big jump, I would stick with the KH120A.
