After yearning for the M60s for so long I am just about ready to order. Only problem is now that I have read all the reviews about the M80s I can't help but think I should hold on a bit longer and get the bigger speakers. Any opinions on the subject?

Had 60s, now 80s.

The M80's are great, but so are the 60's. They sound very much alike, you can't go wrong either way.

Since I'm planning on a subwoofer, the bottom end doesn't mean as much. Am I right? That seems to be the biggest difference between the two?

if you got the amp for the 80, or are willing to get the 4 ohm capable amp for them.....then there is no debate, get them.

I think my Denon 3805 will be fine.

The Denon will do fine for the M80s. Ya might as well go for Axioms flagship speakers, no what ifs then

Not sure that it is a BIG difference if you look at the graphs. The 80's can handle more power, but my 60's fill my 30ft x 30ft room just fine. I would use the money for an EP500/600.

The factory outlet will also save you some dough.

Seems like there was just another thread on this board questioning M60s versus M80s. You might do a search and review the comments.

My comment is the same. If you can afford the M80s, buy them. That way, you won't wish that you had in a couple of months!!
