A few years ago I sold my Mark II Axe which I now realize was a mistake. I was using a pair of Yamaha HS8's, which I also sold. I'm looking to get back in and am trying to decide on which monitors to go with. Are they HS8's still a really good bang for the buck or should I consider something else. My other big question is do you really two or is 1 just as effective. I only play in my basement and not extremely loud which is why i've had a problem with tube amps. Any advice would be appreciated.
