So you are an M80 convert now?

And that binkster link I discovered awhile back on my own and have posted links to as well. It is a good site.

When you hear something better please let us know. I would like to hear them as well, if I can find them up here.

On that note I did have a chance to hear some Focal Profile 918s a little while back and they did sound very smooth and clean. I wish I had gone back with my M80s for a direct comparison but then again the Focal's were $5000 on sale for the pair.

There is a brand that for weird that it seems, Best Buy is carrying now, Vienna Acoustics, specially the Grand Beethoven's, that are very good, in the dedicated audio section, unfortunately they only go to the Mozart's that are not the best they offer, but still very good, these Mozart's run around the price of the M80's Axioms, and are similar to the M50's in size and drivers count, the drivers are designed by Scan Speak, and the cabinets are terminated in gloss finish, they have also a plinth made of black aluminum that gives them a very nice touch...even the Mozart's, sounded to me very good...
No doubt that speakers are developing, and we can find now days very good speakers if chosen wisely...

I saw the Vienna Acoustic Grand Mozarts in Best Buy (Magnolia) a couple of weeks ago. If I remember right, they were 2x the price of M80s, and did not sound 1/2 as good (at least to me)

If you want sound better than the m80's, get some Bose cubes.

They are around $1200.00-$1400.00 right now around here, and they do sound good to me, of course their room is better than mine, and the recordng they were playng, some kind of acoustic jazz sounded terrific...
I can not compare them with the M80's as they do not carry Axioms there... ;\) ...and to compare two different speakers in two different room is rather silly...But a friend of mine have the Grand Beethovens, and trust me that I like them better in their room, that what I hear here from the M80's...but I do not worry about that, as they cost three times as much, at least, and his room is better than mine as well...

Don't be sarcastic, we all know that we can do better than Axioms, of course, all depends on preference, taste, and money...

Sov,

Why don't you take your M80s down to the store and compare there? Just make sure you take your SPL meter with you and carefully match the levels on both speakers. How can you possibly sleep at night with this question unanswered \:\) ?
