Just to let you know I’m completely happy with my d5. Thanks for the recommendation; they sound so clear and balance. I notice that I can work for longer periods know.
I also got the avantone mix cubes, I discover important issues of tracks in the mids, and my snares now are very tight, was one of the first things I noticed in this speakers I was lacking of snare in many of my tunes. They sound horrible but it’s a good gadget for checking mixes.
With the money I saved I got a gap73 ;-) sounds good, vintage flavor!!!

You could check Event Opals if you don't mind metal tweeter sound.

For a superb sound with slightly less lowest lows a second hand set of Harbeth Monitor 30.1's and a Jim Williams modded Adcom GFA545 is a great value and amazing sounding combo.
Or even just a pair of HHB Circle 5's. Great and cheap secondhand monitors. To me better than all the mentioned ones in the thread (except the PMC's, but I'd rather mix on the HHB). Good enough for Geoff Foster to mix blockbuster movie soundtracks on most days of the week.

If your budget was bigger I would say PSI A21m. Done.
Those Harbeth's appear to be like 3k?

Yep, but often found on hifi forums in the classifieds after being cherished and mildly used. VERY nice speakers.
