Looking to get my first home studio monitors. Been looking around and the Yamaha HS5 / hs8 seems to be good, but I'm surprised by how low priced they are - does anyone have experience using them, or know of a better quality / sound range speaker for this type of usage. My budget could be up to $700 for a pair, a pair of HS5's / hs8's is more like $300 / $450 which seemed quite low. Does anyone have any recommendations for the upper limit of my budget??

I picked up a pair of the Yamaha HS7s about 6 months ago and I'm completely happy with them. I was debating between the HS5/HS7/HS8 and with the size of my room (about 12x14) I settled with the mid size of the bunch. They sound fantastic. The mixes and sounds I get now are translating much better to other audio sources when compared to my previous set of Tannoys. Those Kali IN-8s look like a fantastic choice, as well.
