Reference monitors for mixing classical
Author: Gianluca Piacenza

It's time for me to upgrade my main monitor set-up (actually a pair of KRK RP8) in my control room.
I found my KRKs too much "plastic" and colored on certain frequencies (for example my solo piano classical recordings are very "unrealistic", hyped on treble and muffled on mid-low), even if they're very detailed.
I'm looking for something similar sounding to my Sennheiser HD-600 headphones, so very detailed and natural and balanced sounding and what I do is basically classical music (solo piano and chamber) and orchestral film scoring, but also a bit of jazz and acoustic pop.
My budget is 1500-1800 for a pair.
My room is decently treated acoustically, and measure 5m x 12m (2.80m height).
I'm considering K+H o110 (but they're a bit small), Adam A7 or P11A, Dynaudio BM6A and maybe some Genelec.....
I have no possibilities to audition them all, so if you guys have some experienced suggestions please help me choosing.
The key word for me is "not colored".

Thank you
