I got to say, going for Studio Monitors as my primary speakers was a frightening move.
I debated buying these between Yamaha HS5 and KRK Rokit 5. I went for JBL, since i have owned a ton of JBL products before and they have never disappointed me before. I don't do any studio work as of now, but honestly i don't see a problem in using them as just regular speakers.
I live in an apartment, so i don't care for any 2.1 speakers anymore to rumble the walls with bass nor do i want some small satellites that barely do any sound on my table.
I got to say, that i really love these things for their amazing detail and clarity. It just puts every 2.1 i have ever owned into shame. Now fair enough, they cost a decent chump of change, but i know that these are built to last a long time.
After 2 years of using these, i don't really see myself upgrading to anything bigger and since the price on these has also gone down a little, i would recommend these in a heartbeat to anyone with the same mindset i described before. If you are a bass head, then you can't go without a subwoofer, just get these and also get a compatible 150W+ Subwoofer. Easy.
