I'm still waiting on the prepaid label to send my DSP in. But I can be patient this time around.

Thanks guys, I thought I could be patient too CV but I'm getting antsy. grin Those darn M100s are probably getting all the new drivers first.

Oh well, it will be worth it. I am getting a new neighbors so I guess I will break them in slow. Haha

Hi Shawn,

The real holdup is the code writing but I am on it this weekend and then we will run some listen testing on Tuesday. It is a special code because the crossover is different from the current one which is based on the M100 analogue crossover. It will be on its way back to you soon!

So for a fleeting moment today, after finally getting around to reading an email offer from Axiom to upgrade, I considered trading a pair of M80's I have for a set of these new 100's. I guess I didn't realize the price delta between the two sets until just now. I never really paid attention I suppose.....

M80's - $1500 a pair
M100's - $2690 a pair
Net - $1190

That's roughly an 80% increase in price between the two.

To make sure I'm not missing something, (as I admit that I have not really followed this thread very close) what does the M100 have that's up an above what the M80 has?? It obviously has an additional driver, and the woofer drivers are this new model. Is there anything else, other than some additional MDF??

I gotta be frank, unless I'm missing something here, there's not much the M100 has going on that would persuade me to pick it over the M80 for an 80% increase in price.

It has the redesigned high output woofers, which I'm assuming is the reason for the delta, but I won't deny it's a pretty high bar.

Yeah, I don't see why someone wouldn't just spring for the LFRs at that point.

You have to buy additional amplification for the LFR's though, don't you?? Once again, I have not been paying much attention to the two new speakers....

You do, yes. And I don't think the LFRs come by default with the new woofers.
