    What defines a good near-field speaker?

    The cheapest mastering monitor solution?(20-20khz flat)

    Maybe Neumann KH80dsp + JBL LSR310? (We all know mastering level gear is too expensive....) Like :WSDG like using Lipinski L707A as mastering monitor..... Bob Ludwig use Eggleston Work IVY...... Will it directivity bad or other problem?
