Here is a picture of the 8030As in question, for what it's worth:View attachment 303469
They look like brand new cosmetically, but of course there is no way of knowing what is happening internally. But maybe even this is a sign that the seller was not abusing them in any way, I have seen used Genelecs in ebay in atrocious condition, full of paint scratches and even small dents to the cabinet.
I haven't decided yet, I am contemplating my choices. I am considering the small 8020C too, even if I miss a little bit of low end, F3 on them is around 65 Hz I think, not bad. But only 20 +20 amplification. Maybe down the line I can add a used sub..
What about a pair of used KH120s for 750 EUR? Would that be advantageous to a pair of 8020Cs or 8030As? I can stretch the budget up to 700-800 but no more, otherwise I must wait until next year to save up for a pair of brand new 8030Cs.
Wow, 75 db and you find it already too loud! In a way you are lucky because that way you can spend little money on speakers and be perfectly content. Personally, I listen to music for 6-8 hours (I work in the pc) and that is why I want something good and non-fatiguing for the desktop- most of the time it is not very loud but I want to be able to crank it up for 1-2 hours depending on the day. It doesn't help that I listen to a lot of electronic and ambient music, I guess!
The white version of the KRKs looks nicer in the photos, I don't know if they are the same in person.
As far as I know, the 8030A does not go as low as the 8030C.
Also lower SPL. Genelec web site has docs for the legacy products.
