Yes yes Tom.
I shall indeed take photos and provide the standard eight page review...in colour.

This is one auditioning test i am really looking forward to doing.

I think I am out. I was just kind of interested in the "hey, what does an M60 sound like compared to an M3?" "I dunno, let's check them out, I'm kind of curious too" thing that this started out as... but now that it's become a big, stuffy "speaker shootout" that I'll be expected to give my dissertation on, I'm less interested. If I'm going to have to write, present and defend a thesis, I want a PhD after I'm done.

Offer still stands for anyone that wants to come over, have a low-key listen, a beer and a burger though.

I'm still up for a listen. But, hey, you wouldn't even have to put pen to paper. Just show up.

Eventually I would like to install W3s in my living room and supposedly they sound very much like the M3s so it is still important for me to have a listen.

Ok but no closeups of the GR60s. While they still work great, they were "bruised" by FedEx.

Bren, you sound like we'll be critiquing your every move.
Hmm, any maybe i will....

There's nothing serious about how one can listen to these speakers. Personally i would like to hear the GR60s and the Tannoys with a switcher as i know the differences might be quite subtle. I've already heard the Tannoys and the M60s this way and although i could tell them apart, i incorrectly guessed which was the M60 each time. If you're interested in listening this way, or not, it's up to you. I don't have any guns in the house to hold to your head, nothing but a water pistol anyway.

I was thinking you could compare those M3s with my office Tannoys, the Revolution 1s which are likely a bit smaller, but a decent bookshelf quality at least, if you were looking to hear how they sound against another good brand. If we only had some M22s here...but perhaps i can just setup the crossover on the receiver to limit the M60s bass and that might come closer to the tone.

As for the dissertation, been there, done that. A page review of speakers for those interested is a cake walk in comparison. I write about 80% of my living most days so just leave that to me. You just take care of the witty retorts and all will be well.



PS We don't have a bbq yet (threw out the old one before we moved), but beer is always on hand here. Perhaps some nachos and salsa would suffice.

I would like to hear that Hsu sub at some point too.
If he doesn't come by, we'll storm his house one late night and plunk ourselves in his basement playing U571 at 90% volume with a dual hook up to his Hsu and my EP350 until he decides to join us.

I'm sure they have a good side to them somewhere no?

Looking stright on they appear ok. One is worse than the other (thanks to Creative Audio's lack of attention repacking the speaker after they did a third-party audit for FedEx on the condition of the speakers after the first rough handling). One speaker got shipped back to the seller and they ended up sending it back to me.

At least they work.
