Yeah they're really solid monitors, the alesis ones.
Only "problem" is that they lack a bit of low end, but they're very clear outside of that.

I own a set of M1 Actives, just replaced them with Yamaha HS7's, if you can stretch your budget to £300 or so, the HS7's are a lot better of a buy, room correction, eq on the back, I find them a lot more responsive than my alesis and a hell of a lot more balanced, saying that tho the M1's are amazing and mine are battered.

Have you thought about some headphones instead of monitors?
£200 isn't much for a pair of great monitors, but it'll get you some wicked headphones that'll give you a much better bass response

still got the alesis in the shed as my mixing speakers and these as my main production monitors, end of the day they are monitors and are all designed to be flat, the lows on these 7's are the thing that makes it tho, nice and tight.
