Default What speakers do you use?

I'm looking at getting a set of 5.1 speakers for at home. What set-ups do you use or more importantly would you buy?

Currently I use Genlec HT206B 6 inch drivers and a 10 inch 7070A sub
The price was about 800 per speaker and 3000 for the sub

They sound great and I love em however they took almost 5 months to get. I think they must have had to be made or something. All I know was they were hard to get but requested by a few engineers. Perhaps my next speakers could be easier to find in Canada.

I do mostly Post but let's face it we all love and probably started in this biz for music so if they are decent for that too that's a plus.

Thanks in advance

Default Re: What speakers do you use?

I have 5 Dynaudio BM12As and the Dynaudio BM14S Sub.
Problem I had with Genelecs was, they don't translate very well. I find them way too crisp. Great for analyzing but not great to mix on, imho.
