I received them this morning. I replaced my old AX1.5 with a pair of m22. The bass is a lot better. I just love them.

Next step is to get a pair of QS4 for the rear later this year.

I'm very pleased you like the 22s. Adding the 4s will improve things even more. Enjoy!

So what have you been listening to with the M22's? Any surprises or disappointments with the music or movies you've listtened to so far?

so far I only tested the speakers with music. I did a lot of tests with my subwoofer switched on/off to measure the bass performance. The m22ti replaced a pair of AX1.5 which seems to be similar to the M3 speakers. I still have a pair of AX1.5 at the back. I listened to several rock CD (like big shiny tunes) and the improvement is so amazing that even my girlfriend noticed the difference right away.

The bass is a lot better and the mids are a lot more detailed. I didnt have to sit down and hear 20 cd to see the difference. I saw a difference on the first track of the first cd. My girlfriend was thinking the subwoofer was turned on because she's not used to hear bass from our main speakers.

But I still think a good subwoofer is a must for every setup. Even if you listen only to music, it's essential.

When I went to the store, I've heard a lot of speakers. For the price, I can now officialy say that you can't get a better set of speakers.

Agreed. So what are you using for a sub?

I'm amazed at how well the M22's blend with my sub. I've experimented around with switching off the sub and in my room the M22's sound very thin to me. I think it's because I am so used to hearing them with the sub that I don't think I could ever go without it.

I have a 12" PSB subwoofer bought 7-8 years ago. It's really a decent subwoofer. My setup is probably tuned differently than yours. On my yamaha receiver, I turned the bass up to +6. I like feeling the bass from the speaker so this setting is ideal for me. I also adjusted (turned down) my sub with the buttons at the back. You could try it. Turn off your sub, adjust the bass setting until you like it, repower your sub, adjust it and enjoy!

My m22ti are also near the corner (2 inches) of two walls, it probably have an impact but I'm no expert. I'm just enjoying the great sound coming from them.
