Very good stuff @MrBouzouki , thanks for sharing with us! I can re-iterate that Sonarworks is a brilliant tool. Never heard of Waves NX, but that's a brilliant approach imo.
I mix on headphones all the times, and check my mixes on consumer hi-fi equipment and in the car. That's not ideal, but (for a hobby) I think it leads to acceptable results.
I recommend watching this vid to everybody who's mixing/producing/mastering at home!

Cheers, Love and Peace,
Mar T.

Good tips. I have been mixing on headphones for the last 20 years or so.

One reason to use headphones that he did not cover is.......if you are tracking real instruments like acoustic guitar and vocals you will want your room to be treated for tracking them most advantageously. That will quite likely be different from the way you would treat a room for mixing, specifically with regard to the placement of the treatment.
