Mojo, thanks for the audition at your place today. I wish I could have stayed longer, it was great to listen to the variety of speakers you had there. The EP600 wasnt as large or intrusive as I pictured it to be. Man it moves a ton of air. Still think Jakewash needs one or an EP500 at least.
After hearing the M60's and M80's, I would definately justify the extra $$ and buy 80's if I was going for a floor stander. Although if you can get Ron to part with the "mystery speakers" I would consider it as I really liked their detail, despite being lean on bass. The "mystery speakers" were a cool twist.
The clarity of the M22's vs. the M3's was really noticeable. It just showed how impressive of a bookshelf speaker the M22's are. That being said, I think the M3's will be great for my 2ch setup in the family room when I reno it soon. I love my M22's with sub, but without a sub, I think the smaller M3's best suit my needs.
Anyways, thanks again. I'll call you when I get back to pickup my STF-3.
