    Help with choosing a studio monitor.

    So I sold off some gear, and instead of being a financially wise man, I decided that I needed a proper pair of studio monitor. I'm choosing between two pairs: - Klein + Hummel O110 in very good condition, for SGD650 (USD470, EUR455) - Kali LP6 (not V2) brand new in box, for SGD500 (USD375...

    Google search for "studio monitor base plate" and "studio monitor isolation base" turned up nothing. They do not look like the usual angled foam, and instead look like metal? Image is from Adam Audio Twitter page. I know the Studio monitors are sitting on some Isoacoustics product, but I am...
