Yo Adrian,
Do you recall how you would compare the M80's to the Studio 100's?

Loc: It's all about the location.
Yo Dave, very similar. I would say the Studios (V4 and V5)were a tad cleaner on the highs and the M80s seemed to go a little deeper, though differences were very minor. They sounded very similar overall to me, both were very detailed, similar imaging and soundstage but at unsimilar prices.(not A/B tested)

Keep in mind: I am also comparing M80s in my very UNperfect room vs the Paradigms in a properly setup and treated sound room at an audio store. The Digms were run through a Denon 2805(?) vs my newer version 2809, so the receivers were virtually the same.

Kind of similar for me. I heard the 100's at a HT shop on a 3808. I would have preferred to hear on a 1909, but oh well. I was very impressed. Good to hear you feel they sound similar.
