Im not a great reviewer lol. They sound freakin amazing so far does that count as a review?

And they are incredibly loud. I put my pc volume at 0 when hooking these up, turned the volume to about half way on each monitor and increased the volume bit by bit to make sure they don't get too loud and 50% on my pc volume knob with the monitor's at 50% themselves was loud enough to make my ears hurt a little.

My desk is pathetic for these monitors. That is definately hurting my enjoyment of them. My left one is about 3 inches higher than the right and neither of them is level with my head. Outside of that they are awesome. The detail is amazing. Listening to Crazy Horse by Black Label Society I can hear Zakk Wylde's finger's sliding around the strings.

Next on my list is a new desk and some foam monitor pad's.

yes this counts it is what i wanted to hear! lol
how is the bass on them? i don't need a lot just don't want it to be too lacking. Are they sterile sounding?

musiciansfriend has the red ones for only 199.99... idk if i'll like the color though hmm.

Yeah the bass is great. I had another thread asking if I could hook up my logitech sub w/ these coz I didn't think their bass would be good but it's perfect. And yeah i wouldn't get red speakers but that's just me. All my stuff is black.
