I auditioned m60's years ago against 703's and purchased the 60's. I now have 80's and would say they are better than the 703's and equivelant or better than the 100's. jmo

I appreciate the resposes regarding the 703 and 100 comparisons. As far as the amp goes, I have seen 2 channel amps range from $700 to $4K+ for about the same power. It seems like the Rotel RB-1080 would be a good option for powering the M80's. Any other recommendations for 2 channel amps?

I think the NAD C270 or 272 would be good, I used to own the C370 which was their integrated amp that had basically the identical amp as the C270 and it drove my M80's nicely. If you are looking to spend more the Rotel is probably very nice. I hate to sound like a fanboy but I really like the Odyssey Stratos if you buy used for an amp under 1k. There are a few forum members here running one form or another of this amplifier and have all been very happy \:\)

Guys, haikus aside, I just spent the last five minutes reading this forum and LMAO. My wife walked in to ask me what in the heck I was laughing at... (she didn't get it). The post with the smileys in haiku form was hilarious. \:D

I
write this
randomly because I
think haiku
is the lowest of all art forms.

Seriously, 5,7,5. The only thing that the inventor of Haikus is brilliant at, is convincing people that because he couldn't write poetry.... that this was a valid and meaningful art form.

Sorry, I don't mean to sound bitter, I actually just get a kick out of it all.

Oh and I love Paradigm gear. I love my Axioms more but really you can't go wrong with either (except maybe their subwoofers). Paradigm doesn't make anything even close to the EP subs, in my opinion.

I have never compared B&W in the same room so I can't comment there.

Um, what is "dead Tex?"
Should I be worried, Peter?
Oh, and welcome back ...
