Can anyone tell me if there is any reason for me to upgrade my 4 year old MT80's to the new Mt80's.
Like say I sell my 80's for $650 and put the extra towards the v2. or is this just wasting money

Not really that many differences I am aware of but enough minor things that they decided to go with the V2 designation. Whether or not it would be worth upgrading is your call. The High Gloss Cherry is back in stock till the end of the month......that alone is almost enough to make me reorder all 6 of mine.

Yes, that high gloss finish is what I was wanting also. I love the HG Piano Black but, not at an exta $1000

Is there much of a diff between the HG Cherry and the Boston Cherry? I just ordered my Boston Red M50's...it's not too late to change. Are they redder or roughly same colour but just glossier?

My first set of Axiom speakers were the Boston Cherry and I really liked the color. I am just going by the custom shop view and it looks the same just a shiny finish. I have the Black Oak and I know the Piano Black is really wicked. You should really spend the extra $30 and get a sample , cause you may kick you butt later. Sorry I cannot be of more help.
This is another reason as to why I should upgrade to the v2s'

What is your driver configuration? My original 80's were TMTMWW, where the the later v1 & current v2's are TTMMWW. If you have the "original" layout, I'd say go for it. They were a great speaker, but the revised layout does improve the overall sound.

it is the TTMMWW layout and the main question is ot what are the difference, but more are the changes really worth the $900 I would spend to upgrade just the Mt80's. That doesn't include the VP150 or the 4 QS8's

I had asked this question before. I believe the M80s from late 2002 to the present are pretty much the same. Mine are going on 4 years old, I bought them 6/03, and I was told the new crossover design was already implemented at the time I purchased them.
