There have been some people that have had problems with emotiva and the m80's so watch out.

If I already had the M22 and a sub, I don't know that I would upgrade. $1200 buys a lot of Big Macs, or ups the budget for a nice display unit, or buys a lot of good beer...

I found that listening to the M22 + sub was very very similar to the M60, only with noticably more bass.

Given the price of the M22 + stands, I found extra cost of the M80 worth it.

I'm sure that was all very unhelpful. Thank you Mark. ;\)

I have never heard the m22's so I can't really comment. However, I really do love my m80's.

From what I've read if you really like the detail of your m22's then you should either a.) stick with m22's or b.) upgrade to m80's. They say the m60's have a more laid back sound so you may not like the switch if you've grown to love the m22's.

since you are running a sub tho you might not notice a huge difference... how big is your room?


I'm not bitin'

Jovon, Happy Birthday! All I can add is that I'm delighted with my M22s and EP500, and can't imagine needing something bigger except in the very largest listening rooms with a correspondingly long listening distance.

the room is 17x22, but I've been hearing/reading a lot that the m22 and sub is close to the m80's and I'm not missing much.

If M60s have a more laid back sound, I doubt it's noticeable without a test that involved instant switching. M50s are much more laid back, and that's hard to tell without listening hard.

that about covers it. I listened to all 3 for close to 2 hours at Axiom and had lots of opportunity to A/B all the combinations. You can hear differences in a direct comparison, but all three are sonically very very close.

$1,200 could buy you a lot of good music and some really nice concert tickets.
