I went though this ~2 years ago. Went to a music shop with 3 CDs that I
know very well (Eroica|Beethoven/Karajan: dynamics, Abbey-Road|Beatles:
amazing '69 mix, African Space Craft|Keziah Jones: bass&compression) and
- Mackie MKII 824 (out of budget but nice reference)
- KRK Rokit 8
- Behringer Truth 2031A
- some Alesis model - don't remember
the last three were all ~300 euros per speaker.
I eventually bought on the Behringer; they were the closest to the
Mackie speakers. The KRK were rather bass heavy (may be OK for a small
studio where you listen very softly - but not suitable to put them in a
corner of a room or close to a wall where bass reflects even more) and
the Alesis just sounded crap even without comparison.
I'd have loved to listen to Genelec 8030 as comparison - Behringer
copies their design, but they were not in stock. There's lot of talk
that the Behringer are /only/ a cheper knock off.. I dunno if it's true
and, well, they work for me.
for $1000 (US) you may be able to get a pair of Machie HR624MKII which
I'd recommend even though half of the money is "just for the name".
