I don't think you will have any issues with sibilance with the M3's as long as you are listening to good recordings.

Be sure to give them a good work out, with many different cd's. You can't judge them by just one or two songs.

I have heard the M22's and have M80's. The M3's are more "laid back" for lack of a better term.

I really enjoy my M3's for two channel listening without a sub. Hope you do to! smile

For those that own the M3's what was the one single thing that surprised you the most the first time you heard them?

Exactly. Alan has pointed out that sibilance is present in a number of recordings. If you have a speaker capable of reproducing all the sound on a recording, you will get all the sound on a recording including compression, clipping, distortion, sibilance.

I have some recordings like those by Yes that are disappointing. I have some extra material on the otherwise decently recorded Thick as a Brick that is painful to listen to.

I also have other recording such as those by Chick Corea, Hiromi Uehara, Dire Straits and others that are pure joy to listen to.

The highs on your M3s will play very cleanly.

The bass and how loud and clean they really can play. They like to be fed a healthy dose of power. I know, that's not a single thing but hey.....

Your onkyo should be a good match for them.

Hook them up and crank them up, you will be smiling like I was when I got mine. smile

Several years ago I had a pair of Onix xl-s speakers from AV123. I never liked them and I ended up returning them.

There was a lot of hype around all things AV123 up until recently.
