Alan's written an article published in the September/October 2008 edition of LineUp the magazine for members of The Institute of Broadcast Sound based in the UK. LineUp readers are professional recording, sound and editing engineers in film and broadcast in the UK and worldwide.

As he says "Monitor speakers ... like politicians, you get what you deserve!". He comments on the shifting sands of public taste and how these impact on many speaker designers. He also comments on how little time and effort is put into proper evaluation of (monitor) speakers and how most contemporary monitors are horrendously colored and fatiguing - and would never be selected if they were properly evaluated by careful listening.

Many thought provoking comments from Alan here.
