    I recently made the horrific mistake of performing a listening test on some Bowers and Wilkins. I say mistake because now I must have some and that will require large sums of money (which I am struggling to attain). I was looking at the B & W CM1’s, which are bookshelf speakers. Powered by a Rotel Power amp connected with MIT cables.

    My plan is to use these as studio monitors for the most part. I also plan on mastering ONLY a little bit, as I don’t have the room for it. I know this will be an incredible upgrade from my current blue sky 2.1 system, which now makes me cringe with pain to hear their “flabby-ness”. But I still can’t help but think it could be a mistake, and at $1,600 it will be a huge one.
    What do you guys think?

    I am also in the market for a new A/D/A converter to beef up my current Motu 2408 mk3.

    My second question is: Will the need for a more accurate monitoring system take precedence over a better A/D/A? Or the complete opposite?

    The two will be the perfect complement of each other, though I dont think the A/D/A improvement will do much for the Blue Skys.
