They weren't being used that much because, just like the small monitors that you mentioned, they give a similar perspective to my big monitors but with less bass. I still don't really understand the attraction of NS10's but they're now available if a studio client wants them.
I picked up a pair of LS3/5a's in a secondhand shop for £3 :blush: the Rogers ones, in mint condition.
I thought great! I’ll use these as monitors, but I couldn’t get on with them, a bit "plummy" and a tendency to congested bass on complex music. And speech wasn’t as good as on my Acoustic Research AR3. The LS3/5a can be nice though, on some material.
I like NS10’s, they were a revelation in my previous untreated room, very tolerant of dodgy acoustics, and great for mixing on.
