NHT Pro A-10's. I do not recommend them as I had grown to hate them in 
my old studio. Their overall tonal balance is pretty good, but at the 
end of a couple of hours I always feel worn out listening to them. I 
only paid $350 for the set including the power amp. I haven't set them 
up yet in my new space. Currently I'm mixing in my Great Room (A 16 foot 
by 48 foot space) using some high-end Theil speakers. I greatly prefer 
it to near field monitors at this point.

No experience with the Genelec or Mackies. I know a coupl eof folks who 
swear by the Adam's stuff.
