"Little Wing" is by far my favorite. Love his take on it.

Don't worry, I wasn't concerned. I actually just wanted a lead into commenting on how we can never lose in a coin toss.

Heads or Beavers...... snicker.

But then I decided it would be in poor taste. So umm, don't read that.

[quote=RickF] Is the Canadian and U.S. quarter the same size? /quote]

Close enough that they seem to be interchangeable up here although some vending machines may have problems.

U.S. quarter is 24.26mm dia and 1.75 thick
CDN version is 23.88mm dia and 1.58 thick

The only thing you really need to fear is the dreaded Poppy Spy Coin.

OMG!!! That's funny. I had never read that story.

Yes, they are a special nano-technolgy designed to report back the precise GPS coordinates of any vending machine they enter that is filled with beer instead of soft drinks. We then deploy elite special forces teams to, welll.... drink the beer. Beware!

I have very thick pad/carpeting in my rec room/HT and the 80's do feel a little uneasy, but have never fallen over. My kids have learned to STAY away.... \:\)



There is one burn in that they can not deny, the personal brain burn in, that works everytime you change from one sound to another, from one presentation to another, you need time to get used to the new one, in the remote case they want to dismiss the driver burn in, the personal burn in, could never be dismissed...

I'm enjoying now the M80's as never before, and I had a few problems at the begining to get adjusted to them coming from the M3ti's...So in someway that worked my way, not sure if it was driver burn in, or my brain burn in, but definitelly something changed...

BTW any other option rather than those expensive outriggers to place under the M80's, I mean they cost twice as much as a decent speaker stand, and they used just to flat bars of steel and a few holes...Any member here has any DIY inclination that could help us out???

Excellent point. Am finally becoming comfortable with the speakers. Am finding that some of the break in is just me coming to grips with the fact that my new system makes poorly recorded music sound like poorly recorded music. I'm finding lots of mud in the mid and lower levels on some of my CD's that I never heard before.

Am listening to Led Zeppelin II right now (Moby Dick) and am about as happy as a pig in shit, so I think I am now in my happy place with my M80's! Would still like something to stabilize these guys with, I feel like they are going to fall over at any time.

I just ordered some outriggers which I hope to get next week. I ordered the 12" ones and they're much cheaper than the Soundocity ones. I will post my thoughts once I get them.

That is what I was loking for, thanks, keep us updated in how thye look, and perform, talking about stability, nothing else, also why not getting two 12 and two 10, the speaker is not straingh and maybe that will give a more apealing look...

Please keep up oosted about that....

That is much, much cheaper. Shipping's a killer, but... Love the rest of the snake oil on the site, but hey, if this thing works, great!

Tell me about it Ken, I had concerns with making the order and laughed at some of the products. Shipping sucked as it was $45 something.
The sealer was that I went to a local metal fabricator to cost out making them and he just laughed saying that steel prices were so high that he couldn't do it for less than the soundocity onces.
It's too bad that it's a US holiday as it delays my arrival!! Looking forward to see how these work out. I also bought the 12" all around to try and keep as wide as a base as I could for stability.
