Now up and running since Xmas day and I must admit most if not all of the data written on these bookshelves is right on. Powered by external amp (AudioSource AMP110) there's a addicting sonic quality that's hard to ignore. They replaced a pair M3ti's (which my older son now has)and the difference is very apparent. Better dynamics, imaging and layering. And, there's no more bass hump (not that this design feature ever bothered me); sort of added a level of smoothness imo. Although both speakers share the same tweeter technology the M22's are a little more personal, more attached. Listening to Therion's " Birth of Venus Illegitima" from their Vovin CD was spectacular (combined with my Outlaw Sub). The guitar strings and vocals present themselves with such intimacy and forwardness...most enjoyable. These are just some of my initial thoughts.
