The songs sounded like crap, like poor demos, can't find words to describe the feeling. The lows sounded blurry, totally undefined and really boomy, the dynamics were out of control. I've had the same experience I had two years ago when I had the chance to work on them. I've remade the mixes on the kh 310 and they sound great on all other systems.

I'm keeping the kh 310, these are the best mix tool I have found, better than any other I've had the chance to use. Must say they are not fun at all, these are just that, amazing mixing tools.

God knows I tried, xD, but for me the Genelec story has finally ended. In my opinion, they lie like crazy.
I was picking between the Neumann, Focal, and Barefoot. And between sizes in each line. I went with Focal Twin6Be because I have a mid sized room, and because my focus is tracking, not mixing. Need excitement for tracking. Boring is for mixing and mastering, not tracking. IMHO
