Methinks you just made Bob's day...he has been concerned about his 2809 driving M80s.

2309...(2809), sometimes these numbers are confusing!

pfft, I won't even get home until 19:45...this sucks! But tomorrow is Friday for me and I have a 5 day weekend (with the wife being out of town for 4 of those days)!!!! Party time, excellent! I'm going bowling Friday night with some buds and then we're going out DRINK'N....the rest of the days will be spent painting and watching flicks (re-discovering music while painting).

Here's what's on tap, Movie wise, for the long weekend (all Blu):

Matrix Trilogy
Hancock
Before the Devil knows you're dead
Wall-E
The Dark knight

and whatever else I might decide.

Re: M80's shipped!!! - 01/15/09 11:52 AM

So far, I have listend to about 2.5 hrs of Directv Dolby Digital TV (mainly food network) and demoed a couple of movies (about 5 mins ea of Chron. Of Narnia 1 and Fifth Element). First impressions:

1) NOT bright
2) Pronounced bass
3) Revealing
3) Amazing soundstage

I guess my old speakers were so bad (suspected blown woofer in left speaker) but I can't believe what I've been missing.

I don't find the Axioms to be bright, just more adept to reproducing a wide frequency range.

I didn't get a chance, but I need to check to make sure my speaker setting is not set to large because I can't believe how much bass is being output. Perhaps this is just because my old speakers did not produce a lot of bass.

I can't get over how seamless the soundstage is between the center and the mains. I could really tell where sounds were coming from with the old speakers (hard left or hard right).

I'll expand more after the weekend listening party.

Thats the common experience.

I felt the same way about the bass when I fisrt heard my system. I had a micro sterio before, so it really was just that much more bass.

Ah, the beginning of a another long lasting appreciation of a great product. I've had my M80's for three years now and still am amazed at the unbelievable sound quality for the price. I've heard more upscale lines of loudspeakers but I certainly don't feel that I am missing anything at all with with the M80's. Enjoy!
