ha nah - I have a lot of respect for good paint jobs though and I've done them on places I've lived

one of my grandfathers was a painting contractor actually

the handle here is a Talking Heads lyric from their song "Artists Only"

So, update.
I pulled the credit card out for the Kali LP-6.
Ordered through MF, added the gold coverage, which I rarely do, and that actually brought the price down to $283 for the pair, with 3 year extended warranty!
Thanks for the input, I wasn’t even aware of these speakers, so I’m glad I posted here and received some trusted advice as always.
Oh yeah I also ordered a Mackie MCU pro demo unit from Sweetwater.
Be prepared for another thread re: the MCU and Reaper.
Rainy weather and days off are hard on the finances..lol
Going to get my mixing on!

z reviews is totally right on when he says the Kalis are designed by people on a passionate revenge mission to make them good - I've noticed a lot of folks don't stay up to date with the latest innovations in gear and just recommend the same old stuff from decade or two ago because that's what they know. It's not that older stuff won't work or can't be excellent -it does limit the scope of options and knowledge when recommending however.

To me it doesn't make sense to not go for the value for the buck in this day and age if you're not a commercial facility serving the big names. The amount of performance quality you get from spending more only goes up by razor thin margins in most cases.

I think you can feel confident that you'll have what you need to make excellent mixes - and if they're snot doing it for you it might be another factor like the way your room is set up, etc.
