Klein & Hummel 098
It is by listening to someone else as they appeared to me as obvious: it's the sound I'm looking for (in this price range).
I use it to mix in the not specially treated environnnement, connected directly to my ULN8. They are equipped with a system for direct hanging on a wall.
This is the 3-way, it is getting quite rare for this kind of new speakers.

SOUNDS

3 things I remember particularly:
- They are very specific to image the dynamic, transient response is impeccable.
- The low end is very soft and balanced, and allows work without the addition of 80 hz sub
- The image is actually very very good

The top end is very defined without being aggressive, which is quite an advantage but on the other hand they tend to add brilliance to the sound. By listening to my mixes on other systems (that I know), I found an imbalance to the detriment of treble.

OVERALL OPINION

Not easy to find on the used market, these small speakers are not very known to us. Once you have them, you keep them! even using speakers more upscale, you can use it as a reference.
Personally I have since late August, as saying that it's a little warm reviews, but I'm still really fan sound they have.
After testing a lot of this range of speakers (adam yamaha through Genelec, KRK, ...), they have the sound and especially the dynamics like ME. I finally feel comfortable to mix, after taking into account the tendency to accentuate the high end remains in my opinion their only fault.
One thing I did not mention, they restore clarity to the medium / medium low, it is also here that I prefer more modern speakers.
You could almost (almost) compare to NS10, but with a dynamic mailleure especially nice bass, but you can find this quality of sound a little analytical (no better way there right away).

Of course I would do this choice with eyes closed.
