Monitor recommendation...

I am in the process of setting up a voice over studio at home - think small bedroom. I will be doing mostly straight voice work with little if any production involved. I will be recording onto my macbook pro via an Apogee Duet 2. I’m torn between the 8020B and the 8030A. While I have little doubt the 8020Bs would do a great job, I am used to the 8030As, as I use them every day at the radio station I work at. I’m wondering if I would notice a big difference in sound between the two?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might have.

Hi Drew,

The overall sound quality and tone is quite the same between 8020 and 8030. The 8030 has more bass extension and also its maximum SPL is higher. So unless you need low bass (say below 60 Hz) and very high SPL, I think 8020 will fit you well.
