Got another question to add to my post since the guy sold the 60,s .
Is there any chance my current receiver can drive M80,s ?
Its a yammy 5063

I beleive its 90 watts @ 7 channels . The Vp 160 is 8 ohms , The Qs8, are 8 ohms but the M80,s are 4 ohms .
I am planning an amp upgrade shortly
I think I am just gonna take the plunge and grab some new M80 version 3,s .

I think the Yammy should be able to drive the m80's, the question is how loud you plan to crank it. smile The M80's are not 4 ohm across the entire frequency range, and are pretty efficient, so they can play very loud with little power.

Cruncher, the 5063 can certainly drive the M80s. As always, the question is how loud. The 5063 should handle up to about 105dB, and that should be plenty for brief peaks occurring when listening at comfortably loud average levels which aren't dangerously(to your hearing)high.

OK guyz , I grabbed a set of M60,v3 from the B stock auction and just hooked them up tonight . All I can say is WOW . They sound incredible in comparision to my old pioneers . They blend perfectly with the Vp160 and the Qs8,s in the rear . After playing a couple cd,s I now know what you guys mean about hearing additional music , stuff you never heard before in musical tracks we are familiar with . I should have updated years ago . So far i am very happy with the new M60,s
I havnt decided on my rear channels yet , Qs8,s or possibly M22,s hanging from the ceiling on Axiom tiltable brackets .
I have Qs8, on either side of my listening positions and they work very well .
I think my next move is a bigger AVR with pre amp capability . The Yamaha 5063 @ rated 90 Watts per channel just doesnt have enough of the power I am use to. I was able to max out the volume while listening to music in direct where before using the pioneers , I would get distortion .

Hi gearcruncher,

I glad you're happy with your M60's, it sounds likes your system may gain another up grade as well, have fun.
