    Mackies. I wasn't a big fan of those Yamahas myself.

    We have a pair of HR824's, KRK RP-8's Alesis M1 mkII's, ADAM P22-A's, and a pair of JBL 1-point monitors in the walls. The RP-8's are very similar to the HR824's, they have a bit of their own character but really if you had to do a blind test (in our room) they sound nearly identical.

    I tried the Yamahs for about a month and a half... They were much too bright and I couldn't get used to them. Settled for KRK Rokits.

    Congrats! Good Choice man! I traded in a pair of Event Tr8XLs for my Precision 8s. I had to remix everything I had tracked with the TR8s! I haven't touched the "EQ" section on the back of 'em. I want em to be "flat" I guess. I've learned you can use your reflection from the covers, to set your monitoring triangle. When the reflection of your face is right in the middle of both tweets, your set! Best fuckin monitors I've ever owned.
