    Never heard of Equator to be honest, and that would make me a bit nervous if I was thinking of buying them

    No, but I would like to. I thought about picking up a pair a few months ago just to see.

    I heard some great things from the threads on gearslutz about them. Apparently some people had problems with the early batches though- some people say they sound great and sound like an $900-$1000 pair of monitors, some people don't seem to think so.

    In any case I'm not sure if they are suitable for producing electronic music without a sub as a main monitor from what I read about their bass being that they are 5" monitors. Although some people ay the low end is pretty adequate/good for the size. They should really make an 8" D8 and price them at $499 direct a pair and make a sub to go with them.

    Search 'equator d5' on gearslutz there are a lot of people who have bought them and give some pretty good feedback, you can't really go wrong for the price.

    At some point way down the line I may want a second set of cheap monitors and was thinking either these or HS50s.
