    does anyone here rate B&W speakers for mixing? I know there pretty good in general hifi systems however haven't heard of many people using them for mixing.

    Yeah B+W speakers are pretty sick HiFi speakers - but if you're spending serious money you're way better off getting a pair of decent powered moniters - they are more designed to handle the sudden power surges and drops that mixing brings...
