Just copied some pics from the DJ set-up link in the other forum... have done a couple upgrades since this, but nothing worth retaking pics for (mostly DJ stuff). Next up on the production gear list... a tube pre and an interface with more inputs (love my Saffire, but needs more inputs)...

How the V8's working out?
I'm thinking of getting either the V6, Event ASP6 or the HR624's
They're V6's... I love them. I'd stick with them if I had to replace them, largely because I've accustomed my ears to them. Whatever maonitors you get you'll listen to on various systems and learn where you need to adjust your mixes and I've been using these for awhile so I have a pretty good idea how to listen to them. I'd recommend them... then again, haven't mixed on others before. I've heard good things about the Mackies. If you go with 6's I'd recommend getting a sub to compensate for the lows. I've added a KRK sub since this pic - rounds out very well.

Sexy desk, and very nice setup (except for the behringer mixer) I was wondering, since I presume you only do studio work, why do you prefer the yamaha sampler above software like kontakt?
Glad to hear you like it. That Behringer mixer is going to be replaced by Mackie VLZ Pro or VLZ3. Not sure which one though yet..VLZ3 should have better EQ but it's a little pricier too..hmm? I use the mixer for stem/group mixing and that Behringer has kind of a messy sound. Also the amount of cola I managed to pour in there once isn't making it any more reliable either..
To be honest, I haven't even turned that Yamaha sampler on in a long time. There's really no use for it anymore. I use Battery for drums and Kontakt/Chameleon 5000 for other samples.
