Now aren't you disgusted with Bose too?

Glad that you are satisfied. Don't analyze too much...just enjoy. You can get into the bad habit of forensic analysis with these speakers rather than just sitting back and taking it in.

Make sure the speakers are not positioned the same distance from the back wall as they are from the sides.

Can you post some pictures of your room and how you have the speakers set up?

For the moment I am staying with the M82, after playing more of my cd collection I am realizing that the M60 is really showing its true self. I have some I never used to play, but now I can tolerate them. If my wife was to make me choose(have I ever mentioned how much I love her!) I would be going with the M80s, hands down, no contest.

That M80 clarity and fullness has me (and I know my wife would prefer them as well compared to the M60s alone), but my wife has said she doesn't mind the M82 look and she definately prefers the extra mid/highs the M22 lends to the M60 richness; unless she says otherwise, I am one of the few with the M82(M60/M22 in parallel). Pics of my present M82, VP150 setup to come soon(maybe tomorrow), along with some pics of the Axiom wire and banana plugs.

Damn, the more I think about those M80s and the chance to have M22 upstairs I start to waver.......must..... focus......time is running out, only 2 weeks to go in my 30 day window.....

You could get another pair of M22s upstairs.

Jason, it might be interesting to check how much of the M82 quality is due to the M60 woofers alone. This could be done, of course, by removing the connecting straps and connecting the speaker wire to the bottom woofer terminals.

The thought of M3s for upstairs went through my head several times as well, as I am not sure the sub will make its way up there now or in the future.

John's suggestion would be a good thing to try but I don't think the woofers will give that mid warmth. BTW, I now have my M80s running bi-wired on A+B. I wanted to hear what the woofers and mids/tweeters sounded like separately. The woofers on their own almost sound like Bose 501s (a slight exaggeration but not too far off) and the mids/tweeters like M22s. If I disconnect one of the mids and tweeters, I wonder if they'd sound like M60s?

I bet the woofers alone sounded like my 201s and that wouldn't be an exaggeration. Not too surprised the tweeters and mids sound similar to the M22, as that is all the M22 consists of. So far as the M60 attempt, again it should almost exactly mimic it, only 1 tweeter and mid and both woofers in nearly the same enclosure, try it and let us know.

John I will let you know, good idea, as the M22 and EP600 didn't have that warmth of the M60, it still felt to be missing something, very good but not full. This would suggest it's the 6 1/2" driver that is warming things up.

I am still trying to get some time to compare the M22 to VP series.

Holy highjack! We should be posting under your(our) review!
