I'll give it a try but I'm almost never sitting in the right spot when I listen to music. I'm usually off to one side or lying down.

That sounds right to me. You may have already answered this, but are you using a subwoofer with your M3s?

No subwoofer. I don't have the M3s now. Another pair is on the way.

Well, the M3s put out a surprising amount of low mid bass for a small speaker, but they are still small. They integrate easily with a subwoofer which will make a HUGE improvement to sound quality because together they will reproduce a larger segment of the audible frequency range.

The budget system I just put together for a friend (Bob, please pick it up!!) still on my kitchen center island, uses a Dayton 12" HT120 subwoofer (about $170 delivered as I recall), a Sony CX90ES 200 disc changer ($1,100 MSRP, $150 used mint); M3V>2<3 cherry gloss finish speakers; the Muse T-Amp (about $30.00); Pyramid 5 amp power supply (about $30.00); TCC TC-754 RIAA Phono Preamp from Amazon.com (about $80 delivered).

Jerry, this system, even sitting on top of my center island, sounds GREAT. It can't make a bad recording sound good, but it sure can make a good recording just make you smile, and do for you whatever it is music does for you.

I was looking at the EP125 sub here but I don't see any photos of the rear of the sub unless I missed it.

These are cell phone picures but, you can see the Dayton has an internal cross-over, although the spring tab input/output tabs are pretty flimsy. The sound quality is good and the Dayton blends well wth the M3s.
