I just received a pair of Event Opal and yippy yahoo is all I have to say. I've had my eyes on these for over a year and they arrived today. I'm obviously on the sonic honeymoon so I'm not going to be able to give a solid review on them for a while but my first impression is... NICE They look beautiful and sound very well matched for my CM (18 x 24). The sound is what I hoped for, a clearer upper mid which will complement my other pairs. I have a good mix of monitors now. I feel I've been mixing too bright before, now lets hope I can achieve better mixes. I've read comments like they are weak in the mids but I have to say that the mids are are nothing short of the complete opposite. These sound really smooth and clear. There is an array of adjustments and measurement software that comes along with these to tune the bass in more precisely so that's the next thing on my list to do. They look great and the build on them is just excellent. First impression, I'm blessed. I'll be back here in a month with a more accurate opinion.
