I would recommend the Neumann KH80dsp or KH120’s if the Eris sounds too bass heavy in your untreated room.

I have the KH120’s and love them.

I think he should be OK, the Eris have a bit of adjustment round the back, if they sound a bit bass heavy, but I’m guessing given the music Hjlphilp is making they’ll be just what he needs.

Ok update on my update adventure... the eris e8 xts were as big as my house so I couldn't use em. I mean I couldn't even see my screen... i was getting too big for my britches

But I just watched Warren huart use sonarworks with the Kali lp6s... the exact ones I ordered after getting ready to send the big bois back. I'll be getting them tomorrow.

Like I said, anything will sound better than some blown speakers... BUT its a miracle that I've been able to mix this long being THIS handicapped lol

BTW AGAIN... sonarworks on my ath m70s have been a GAMECHANGER... like... honestly instantly better at translating and making even more powerful mixing decisions... cant wait to have two FULL speakers to listen on lol

That’s a shame, the Kali's may be more suited to the room, and they have adjustment too, let’s hope the reduction in size suites you better.
