They are Presonus E66. I'm a lot happier with them now they are horizontal. I'd stupidly forgotten they are designed to work either way.
I've googled a bit about these, and the E44. They apparently have a wide stereo field, which is what I would need.
My iLoud Micro monitors are good by I feel they're a bit 'underwhelming' at times.
My MP11SE is in the living area, which is a bit comparable to a loft, i.e. open space. I was considering the iLoud MTM's but horizonal placement is not recommended by the manufacturer (and reviews I've read), even though they include supports for horizontal placement in the box.
These Presonus ones are designed for horizontal placement which is what I would want. I would place them pointing straight ahead, not towards me at an angle. Might go for a couple of Zaor Miza V36 or V42 stands.
How is the sound quality in your honest opinion ? Excellent for acoustic piano, or just good ? I'm also looking at the E44 ones, a bit smaller, as I feel the E66 might be overkill.
Also, I haven't got the faintest idea about calibrating monitors, not an audiophile. I especially want the whole 'sonic range' to be excellent, lows, mids, and highs. I like a clear sound, with good trebble, but I also want enough bass (I hate it when speakers sound tinny).
I know too much bass is probably the bane of anyone who knows all about setting up the perfect studio sound, but I happen to like it.
So, in other words, I want all 88 notes of the piano to sound perfect, clear in the treble, full in the middle, and powerful like a 9 foot concert grand in the low-end.
Would these E66 do the trick ?
