So as the title suggests I need help and cannot decide. However I have narrowed it down to these.
Bookshelf speakers:
KEF Q300
Elac B6

Studio monitors:
M-audio bx6 carbon
alesis audio elevate 6
monoprice 5 or monoprice 8

My needs are pretty simple for the most part i use headphones, but at times i like to listen to music ( lets say mainly EDM or of the electronic variety, some rock/rap) but usually games. Soundstage is the biggest factor for me, then depth and overall sound quality.

Thoughts? Opinions?

how's your room acoustic conditions?

KEF Q300 should be better in term of phase by their speaker design
Elac Debut B6 uses fabric tweeter that might appears as softer highs.
both of them needs amplifier since they're passive

I have no idea about those active monitors as I havent heard them in person
but, monoprice 8 should have a better low-end energy since the cone area is bigger than the rest

how the sound stage, depth, and separation is depends on your acoustics. they're well known products. the most importance is, which speakers that fits to your sound signature? have you try them in person?
