And the score?ive created this chart to show the difference between some similarly sized studio monitors

the Alpha Evo 65 impressively wins in frequency response, and almost in price, this probably contributes to the speaker having lower SPL along with the slightly lower powered class D amps
The Alphas are not in the lower tier as far as hiss, medium or low-medium. I haven't heard the Genelecs but from people's comments I doubt the level of hiss is comparable. IMHO the Alphas have too much hiss for desktop listening, but I'm quite sensitive to it. I think a minimum of 0.75 m - 1 m is advisable.
