I have a pair of V4 M22s (in HG Rosewood) that are on the FMS-16 stands. Unfortunately, I really don't know how they sound without my subs because in my HT, I just don't use them any other way. They sure blend nicely with the EP-800s though. I thi

It is the fun side to hifi audio. The speakers that I have sound great. but you simply don't know if they could sound better until you go out and try something else to have a point of reference to compare to. In my case, I have C3's that sound pret

I believe that you are finding the same thing that I found when auditioning many different brands of modern, decent speakers a while ago - they were all 'similarly good' within their price point & class. They all sounded fine, although each had

My M22 on walls can not hold a candle to the bookshelf M3's. Imaging, bass, volume, it is not even close. I was actually hoping to try some m3 on walls myself for surrounds. I have M2 on walls in a smaller room for surrounds and they are excellent

I have both M3 in-wall, M2 on-wall and M22 on-wall (and some M2s and M22s regulars) for the non-Home-Theater rooms. I did not notice much (if any) difference between M22 on-wall and regular. Because of look and integration, the on-walls is now my fa

Same question turned around -- do you have the M3 in-walls actually mounted in the wall ? Not sure if they're sealed or open at the back so this might be a non-issue. One other thing that's worth mentioning is that Energy C-3's are pretty nice spea

Hmmm. I think that my on-wall M3s sound better than the highly praised (even by me) QS8s for surround duty. I get nice and fairly deep extension in the audio range compared to the QS8s as well, and they "aren't to shabby." Just seems a
