Where did you place the M3 and M22 speakers? Just curious. If and when I move from my current 5.1 system to a 7.1 or 9.1 system, I will have think carefully about which new speakers to buy. I am sure I will get two QS8's. But the other two?

Richie,
I have a pair of M3ti's in my computer room being ran through a Bottlehead Foreplay Tube Pre Amp. and a Yamaha DSP 1000 SS Power amp. and the m22ti's are a being used with a Cayin TA-30 35 watt Tube Amp with a M & K subwoofer. They both sound sweet.

Tube amps are an entirely 'new' species for me. But I would like to try them out sometime. Can you recommend any reasonably priced two channel tube amps? My knowledge of tube amps is limited to the ones I see in Stereophile magazine.

Richie,
When I started into tubes I went to the Bottlehead.com site and purchased a foreplay preamp kit and hooked it up to my SS amp and you get the best of both worlds. Tube on the front and SS on the back. Check the site out the kit's are simple to put build.
