I have recent experience. I brought my 80's to a friend's house who owns 60's for a comparison.

"I am interested in MUSIC, not in movie sound"

Get the 80's. Why fiddle around integrating sub when the 80's go deep so well. The 80's are better than the 60's. The 60's are still excellent speakers and are not disappointing at all.

I sit pretty close to my 80's. About 7 feet. They are perfectly relaxed at low and medium volumes.

The 80's look majestic in a room. The M22's look strange. If you do go for a bookshelf / sub combination then I would say to get the M2s.

I think the M80 is a steal for the money. They are awesome. They just do everything. Ian is a genius.
