Adam Artist 3 (review) and Artist 5 (hands-on)
USB digital input (sadly, no SPDIF/coax). RRP is $1000 for the 3s and $1200 for the 5s.

If pro studio monitors are being considered, the very nice and very expensive Klein + Hummel O300D (review) is an option. The Neumann KH 120 D mentioned earlier in the thread still seems to be pending release.

Thanks! Added the Adams. The 300D seems to be discontinued.

Well for the sake of completeness I'm bring up these KS Digital Studio monitors.

Surprised that no one has offered up one of the finest digital speakers around.

The Bamberg Series 3

It's been on the streets for a couple months now.

Offered in several options ranging from a digital satellite with I believe a 6" woofer and tweeter or that satellite sitting on a sub cabinet.

Hello JohnR,

I have a few candidates for your list:
The German brand Nubert, which sells directly to consumers, taking orders via internet or phone, has a whole range of digital speakers.
They all have:
-optical and coaxial digital inputs (maximum 96 KHz, 24 bit)
-usb input (speakers are recognized as a sound card)(a little bit odd: maximum 48 KHz, 24 bits)
-analog inputs (asymmetrical cinch)
-digital crossover
-digital power amplifiers
-analog mono subwoofer output
-remote control with volume, bass, treble, input selection, on-off
-more settings possible in menu, for example balance, low-cutoff-frequency

the models are:
nuPro A-100, A-200, A-300, A-500 and A-700 (the latter 2 are floorstanders).

For what it's worth: They all get outstanding reviews, for example the German magazine Stereoplay concludes that the A-700 (2530 Euro pairprice) is the best active floorstanding speaker under 10,000 Euro pairprice.

The character of these speakers is said to be very neutral, studio-monitor like.

(uhum, I was just now checking out the site and to my surprise I didn't find an Englisch section, it's all in German as far as I can see. I can understand if that's a problem but decided to go ahead with this post anyway because these speakers seem to be very interesting.)
