Are the new 8010 monitors a link bridging a gap between 6010s and 8020s? I'm looking for a 5.1 surround monitoring rig for a pretty small control room. No sophisticated mastering intended - just verification and proofing. The material is 90% theatrical/film content. I'd be grateful for your recommendations.

Hi,

8010 monitors do have better performance than the 6010s but then again 8020s are still a clear step ahead especially when it comes to bass extension and output. How big is your room and what is the listening distance to the LCR?

Hi Ilkka

Thank you for your reply. The room is really small: 2,5 x 3 m. The listening distance is about 70 cm.

Ok, in that case a set of 8010s with a 7050B subwoofer should fit really well. :)

Thank you! May I consider a smaller subwoofer?

You can try 5040B too but it has only RCA connectors, so you will need a lot of RCA-XLR cables/adaptors.
