I have the predecessor to the Genelec's, 8020 APM. Had them for like 4-5 years now and I'm really pleased. Crisp sound and if you position your head right you get enough bass to get everything except sub-bass properly monitored :-)

Meaning: physical size, and the fact that they are too (loud, bassy, powerful) for my apartment, neighbors not happy, :) it's gotten to the point where I can't use them at night. Also I feel they are good for jamming, but not really great for mixing etc…

It seems people really like them or they say they are rubbish, so is the internet. I would love to have them on my desk for all around use, as well as when checking mixes, but I am nervous the lack of bass will f up my mixes.
