Pardon me if you've seen this question in another thread but for people who've heard the M80's v3 & v2's i'd be interested in hearing your opinions.

i've got the opportunity to buy a pair of v2 M-80's purchased in Sept 2007 for $750. Immaculate condition.

Is the $600 extra dollars I'd have to spend on new v3's from factory outlet justifiable?

I mentioned this example recently on another thread but back not too long ago I traded in a pair of V2 M60s for a pair of V3 M80s and I was quite surprised how similar they sounded!

Re: the V2 M80s, for that price and the condition they are in, my answer to your question about wondering whether or not to spend the additional $600 for V3s is an unequivocal NO!

also keep in mind used speakers don't have a 5 year warranty.

I suppose there is some comfort with buying new adn getting a 5 year warranty. However, even if a driver failed, it wouldn't cost anywhere near the difference ($600) to replace.

I would just make sure that all the drivers are in good working order before purchasing and the cabnets are in good shape.
