(Follow up question regarding the hs5 speakers:)
Lastly, do you really think the - bit of uneven - freq response of the hs5's won't be such an issue to mix on them? : . Regardless, I have to say I love my 5's! Unbelievable clarity for a budget monitor! I appreciate your mixes even more since I got them. Especially the Fairchildren! Such a smooth high end! Thanks so much for pointing these speakers out! :-)

Like I said, your choice of floor covering, studio sofa, positioning of your speakers on the shelf, will have WAY more influence over the sound which reaches your ears than a dB either way on the manufacturer's plot.

A lot of classic albums were mixed on cheap hi-fi speakers with consumer amps.
