I've been happily using my HD500 into a Scarlett and then to a set of Mackie MR8s.
One of my monitors packed it in (power supply) with the prospect of repair being unlikely (the importer here in Australia is starting to say the they cannot source a replacement). I'm likely to be left with one functioning monitor (and it's only 4 years old too!).
What do you all think about either replacing the mackies with another full-range monitor pair (probably krk VXT8 or VXt4+subwoofer) or getting a DT25 and more modest monitors (e.g VXT4s) for playback?
I only use this in a home-studio enviornment, mostly at moderate volumes (e.g 70-80db @ 1 meter from monitors) for practice/hacking around.
Would a DT25 be too loud?
