Audio problem

I like good quality audio and in our new apartment I wanted to reduce the size of my audio equipment.

So I decided to look at some of the current small studio monitors on the theory that they'd have more accurate(*) sound than most consumer grade equipment without being quite as insanely priced as the audiophile branded equipment.

Eventually I landed at the JBL LSR4326P.

Dang, a speaker with ethernet and usb for software control of volume and equalizer settings, 3 different audio input formats, and they can self-correct for bad acoustics?

That warms the heart of my inner audiophile and my outer computer geek. Still, I can't help but suspect they're total overkill for random music listening and video game playing.

Currently my best audio output is probably the Grado SR60s coming out of a Roland UA-25.

(Did I mention had a problem buying overkill?)

(*) I'm not sure how well I've learned this point, but I do know that in theory accurate is not necessarily better. Highly accurate speakers can make poorly mixed sources sound really bad.
