Studio monitors: A Pleasant Discovery.

A coworker is selling a pair of Event 20/20 BAS biamped studio monitors and letting me audition them in my home. The setup comprises the Event, a Mackie mixer and a laptop for source. The laptop is connected to the mixer with a cheap stock RCA via its headphone out. A pair of off the shelf XLR runs between the Mackie and Event. My current "audiophile" 2 ch system consists of 3.6 Magnepan ribbon speakers driven by a pair of Odyssey Stratos Extreme monoblocks.

I am completely surprised of how good the Event monitors produce music. In fact, they outperform the Magnepan sytem in the transparency and image departments. All this for $400. I am seriously considering replacing the Maggie system with an active studio monitor rig. Any thought or recommendations?
