I don't think so.
If this is the way they are spose to sound it's not all that good.
I had a friend order a pair of m3's three weeks ago and it took a good week or more til the harshness settled down.
Same with the M22, just a tad harsh right now, Then again I don't much care for this Pioneer sc-1525, however I did notice I don't need to turn the volumn up near as much.
I do need a couple baby subs though.
I have 7 months to demo before I decide to build a home theatre using these or go up to the M60's, my daughter may end up with a great sound system yet.
Well ,I know she will cause I am getting something along the Denon/Marantz setup.
