Dan, you're not even out of school yet. How can you afford all that gear?


I work at my school as an IT guy and save money. Birthday money helps too... My parents are nice enough to give me a good boost with college stuff.

I don't have a girlfriend, so I've probably saved a few (thousand) bucks with that financial investment of restraint. Wow, the premise of calling my single status a smart financial investment is pretty sad.

I'm a freelance web designer, so that gives me a good chunk of change when I have the time to do it.

In my eyes, the extra monitor was a necessity...partially. If you're doing any type of programming or web development and you don't have two monitors, you'll quickly go insane flipping through windows. At least I do. So, business cost :).

bump? This thread says page 4 of 3....I broke the thread!



Edit...looks like itself when I posted again...the forums must have balked at my investment concept.

I think I'm going to copy you, Dan, and go for M22s instead of Audiobytes for my computer. At some point. After I get a new computer desk, perhaps.

Wise choice \:\)

Make sure you get a big desk, they take up space. It's best to have them as far apart as you can to get a good sound stage. The receiver takes up most of my desk depth wise, so it is good to have a deep desk as well.

I always thought it would be nice to have a smaller desk, then have speaker stands to each side for ultimate flexibility. However, I don't think i could find one deep enough to fit the receiver on it and still have room for other things.

Also, I like having the sub right under the desk. After a while i get used to it as a foot/leg rest. Anywhere else and the bass seems distant to me.

I figured maybe speaker stands. We'll see after I decide on a desk. I think that may take ONE YEAR. But yeah, if I decide to go with dual monitors at some point, I'd run out of room on the desk, that's for sure.

Charles,

Consider how far you need to sit away from the M22s in order to have a good sound-stage. When I had them at my place, they were spaced 8 feet apart and I was 8 feet away (ie. the golden triangle). I don't know how they would sound if they were say 3 feet apart and you were three feet away. Also, stands are likely an excellent idea. You'd hate to hear the M22s acoustically coupling to your desk. You should talk to someone at Axiom that is knowledgeable about all of this before you make such a move.

I'll definitely put more effort into the thought process when I get closer to upgrading my computer's audio. I figured I could get more flexibility by getting normal bookshelf speakers and a cheap receiver, but I may still opt for the Audiobytes due to price and convenience.

Yea, you can't see from the desk, but they are back quite a ways on the side.

However, consider this. Even though the positioning won't be optimal for a M22 stereo setup, the M22's will be better than any other speakers.

By the way, Dan, I ordered the 2408WFP this morning. I'm impatient, so I opted for overnight shipping for $24. Unfortunately, their estimated ship date is May 1st, so fat lot of good being impatient does me.

Nice...3-5 day shipping got it to me in exactly 2 days. I ordered Sunday, it was waiting for me on Monday. However, I'm only a hop and a skip away from the distribution center.

Congrats :-)

You'll want to go to apple.com/trailers and treat yourself to 1080p trailers. It's great.

Look on the back and tell me what revision you get...I have an A00. You may or may not have the problem where there's a little sparkly "edge" to text if you look closely.

When you get your mointor, immediately set it to the "Graphics" Color setting mode and Custom (R,G,B) mode. Every other setting is pure crap IMO.

Wait patiently for the A02 revision...and we'll be good \:D
