Unless you've really got some goofy settings, I don't think the rest of your system could be causing you discontent. Just so we're clear, you're playing regular old redbook CD's as a source and minimizing any processing done by the amp?

As much as I (and others) may hate to admit it, it is also possible that you have really great ears and simply don't like the overall profile of the M3v3. Personally, I think it's a pretty terrific speaker, but your ears, your room, your music, etc.

My M3s are placed in acoustically difficult positions - on stands in corners where bass response was unacceptably enhanced.

This produced some muddiness, not only with these units but also with my previous speakers in the same placement. Since I have no Audyssey type capability, I ended up manually cutting bass on the Sony Receiver to -4. Similarly, I added +1 to the treble response.

All is well now & I'm very happy with their performance that is surprisingly powerful & clean for a bookshelf in such a large room. Room acoustics can have a huge impact...
