The more I listen to the audiobytes the more I am starting to believe that they are a cross between an M3 and an M22. They are more detailed than an M3 and have more body than an M22.

I'm listening to "Not too late" by Norah Jones right now and they sure sound wonderful. No one should rush out though and buy a pair of these instead of 80s. The 80s reveal tremendously more detail...besides other things. I just had to laugh though when I compared them against the HK speakers we use on the home PC. Through those, Norah sounded like she was behind a thick drape.

I'm astounded though by the soundstage created by these little speakers when I stow my keyboard tray and move forward. The soundstage is certainly not like the 80s but it's almost like there are 80s in a plane behind them and leaning forward opens up a little window to listen to the 80s through.

I can't wait to hear them with the additional woofers. That should give them more "body". Another 2-3 weeks... When I used them with the EP500, sound was good, but I was not in a comfortable listening position so I cut the test short.

Audiobytes have more body than the M22? huh??

I just listened to the Audiobytes (Ken brought his over), and it's quite clear that they're impressive for their size, but nowhere near the level of the M3 or M22. Perhaps it's the nearfield setup that gives the impression of extra body?

I suspect if one were to listen to the M22s in a nearfield setup they'd blow the audiobytes away.

Who said they had more body than the M22???

I said that with the EP0, the Audiobytes would have more body than without the EP0...

So you're saying I should get M80s for use as my computer speakers? \:\) Seriously, is anyone here using floorstanders for nearfield listening?

I'm sure you could do some great near-field listening with the M80s if you had them two feet apart \:\) .
