Yeah, Bren, and since Brandon is 19 or whatever, he'll be getting bigger and stronger and will really be able to tighten those posts! You're forgiven; who could resist "ribbed".

Just to complete the total hijack of this thread... what IS a Haoleb?

I'm assuming it's a Hawaiian God of... uh... Sibilance?

Ahh, like in Northern Manitoba where everyone called me Dwight... I thought it was like the aboriginal version of "Joe" in those Vietnam War era movies.

Finally someone explained... it's 'cause I was "D'white guy"

Glad to see you got your M60s and are generally happy with them.

I received my M50s a couple of weeks ago and had to rely on the assistance of my four grandchildren, ages four thru ten, to figure out how to open the boxes-no instructions! (they had hidden agendas, however-they wanted to play with the boxes-right away!!)

The only damage to the boxes was the lifting handles; one on each box was torn away-I noticed cause I wanted to be the one to carry them in from the truck, thank you.

I got a very positive feeling when I started connecting them up-very positive! TWO Red binding posts!! (the embossed + and - symbols where there of course, so no problem) I recieved two S/Ns with a gap between them, I suspect the missing s/n contained the black post, which, being negative-relative to positive-made it somewhat inferior and relagated said missing s/n speaker to FO status.

I also have to agree that the bass on my M50s is not quite up to the level that I'd hoped it would be-I guess I just expected better. Other than that, they sound just fine, close enough to my Beloved M3s to be long term "Keepers"

Good news, In my haste to start listening to the speakers right away, I didn't notice that the receiver was set to VMAx mode. According to HK's website, "VMAx® creates a three-dimensional sound field using only conventional left and right front speakers. The result is sound that fills a room and puts you at front row, center."

It's kind of a strange effect. It definitely sounds different when it's on and perhaps sounds a little fuller or richer. I like it alright, but with VMAx off, the sound is a little cleaner to my ears. Also, I don't feel the need to turn down the treble anymore, so no more feeling of brightness! I still think I might invest in a nice musical sub down the road, but I'm very happy. I had the house to myself for another hour so I made the most of it by listening to more CD's.

Oh yeah, FordPrefect - The new spikes *are* very nice.

I find it interesting that the tweeters have that little cap over them. The four exposed sections radiate outward but the dome doesn't beam straight at you. Seem like it would give the speaker an airy, open sound. I have not purchsed my Axioms yet.

Does anyone have up close pictures of the black m60 in a home theatre environment. THat is the last piece of the puzzle in buying. Black vs cherry. I am also getting the vp150 and qs8 and a DLP is in the future.
