I had a chance to audition the Rockets RS750's last weekend and Spiffnme is absoultely right about them; They have a different sound to them. I was looking for a sound like the Energy Veritas 2.3i and they don't sound anything like that. Alan told me that the Veritas 2.3i will be close to the M60ti; so the Rockets were not a good speaker for me to get. I wasn't too fond of the finish either. I would have to say it's fugly. It wouldn't blend in my decor in my bonus room. So I placed an order on Sunday for the M60ti. I hope I won't be returning these speakers.

Keep us updated with the saga.

I demo'd the Veritas 2.2 and the M60 in my home for about a week. They've very similar sounding. Detail, clarity, and soundstage go to the M60's. I like the resonance in the midrange of the Veritas better though.

I couldn't be happier with my M60's.

Wow ! That was quite a flurry of activity. I can hardly keep up with you guys.

Trying to answer a few questions:
The Rockets I am comparing to are the 750's. Yes they are more expensive than the M60's. I initially intended to shoot for the M80's, but an experienced gentlemen at Axiom whose name escapes me (you guys may know who I am talking about) actually talked me out of them based on my setup. I was impressed with that. Of course, many may think I'm easily impressed. I don't know how to compensate/ explain the cost difference in my audition. On one hand the M60's have the price advantage; on the other the 750's should sound $600 better in theory.


Have any of you guys seen the back of one of these 4802's? Have any of you been to the Mustang Ranch? I give the MR a big thumbs up in "ease of use".

I might not be able to post stuff every night around here because:
A. I might not have time or
B. Nothing may have happened since the last time I posted,
so I hope no one is offended if I don't respond right away. I only have about 30 minutes a night during the week to fool around with this stuff.

I may have to pick your brains for advice soon. I'm so far lost however, that I don't even know what I don't know.

Did I mention the Denon manuals suck?

Thanks for everyone's interest.

dr, you devil. A bit of advice. If you plan to apply the M60s to the same application you normally do at the Mustang Ranch, I don't belive you will be satisfied with the audio. On the other hand, if you plan to apply the same approch to 4802 as you deliver at the Mustang Ranch, then 1) that won't work either, 2) it's gonna hurt bad and 3) you are one twisted puppy.

There! I knew, with a little encouragement, he'd tell us what he REALLY thought of the Denon manuals.

Picking our brains for advice is a little like diving for pearls in Lake Erie..............Dangerous and not very fruitful.

Boy! This nutty puppy is gonna fit in around here just fine! And he's an old guy, too.

"On one hand the M60's have the price advantage; on the other the 750's should sound $600 better in theory. "

In theory. In fact you run into the law of diminishing returns very early in audio. Upgrading to a better sound may cost you far more than you can imagine.

Don't forget there's also looks involved. Is the Rocket rosewood (or whatever) finish worth $600?
