Does AVS White come after AVS Gray? Am I allowed to use despite my age?

In reply to:

I asked what he thought about the sound - he shrugged and said "really good, why, did you change something?"


May I suggest that we do NOT tell Mark about this. He's got enough problems with his heart as it is.

I thought they sounded really good. Imaging was excellent, the center panned quite consistently with the mains, and there was not even a HINT of ringing, metallic sound, or any of the other problems the guys on AVS claimed to hear.

One area they also excel in is dynamics ... Blackhawk Down has a LOT of dynamic extremes, and even in a 25x24x9.5 foot room, we had no problem with them keeping up.

For comparison to the RS-1000's, the Big Guys, even at a measurably identical SPL, are more articulate. So no, the $440 M22's don't match the RS-1K's ...

But, for $440 + $385 for the center, they are initially impressive, enough so that I am going to leave them in the system for at least two weeks.

You know, Last August I was going to do a full work over of a pair of M-80's ... THAT could be fun. Especially with the EMOTIVA amp ... For those who read up on amps, one MPS-1 has 336,000 uF of capacitance and 75 amps ... in other words, it will drive anything.
