Default Adam or Yamaha ?

The questin may be stupid and the answer obvious, still:

I have a chance to buy a pair Adam S2A. I am on my way to purchase a pair Yamaha MSP5.
What's the best choice?
Thanks/ P.

In an ideal world, if you currently don't have any monitors, I'd say get both.

Otherwise, the Adams are very popular. It really comes donw to:
Which do you like better?
Which one can you afford?

Do you have a control room that justifies buying the ADAMs? Otherwise, save your money and get some other kit to improve the signal chain, or invest in treating your room.

Thank you all for answering.
I forgot to write that the used Adam (S2A) are very cheap. The guy wants the money NOW because he's traveling to another country.
It's still a bit more expensive than Yamaha, but not much.(!)
Even so, as you guys said, I am not sure this is what I need....
And yes, I have place for Yamaha, but for the Adams I'm gonna need to do some modifications in my
home-studio...
I may have some hours to make a decision...

Hey, if you're not going to take those ADAMs, let him know I'm interested.
