Hi! I'm about to re-do my speaker system. I'm planning to buy two pair of the M22's and a VP150 center channel I will replace my sub later. My receiver is the Denon 3808.

I have all of my music in mp3 format. I use Denon's mp3 restorer. I was wondering if anyone has listened to a mp3 with the m22's or any other Axiom speaker?

Hi Damien,

If you are using a MP3 player with your Denon make sure you turn off any audio enhancement features on the player and check the equilizer on the player that is set to flat or off. I have noticed on a few MP3 players that some of these features are utilized on the manufacturer setting. These features can color the sound and can add distortion and ruin the neutral sound quality of the M22.

Denon has a feature to take compressed media and uncompress, which is usefull for many MP3 and other audio files.

Yes I know about the restoer. In fact I use the restorer the HQ setting. Do you think it is near cd qualty?

Note: I use mp3's rather than cds because I have a physical disabilty.

I was just replying to the Dr. \:\) I don't use it that much as I usually am listening to my CD's, not ripped media. I think it works well though, may have to try it again...

I own a denon 3808 with m80's. Regarding the restrore button, I don't really use it on mp3's since most of my music is in FLAC format, but I do use it occasionally with internet radio streams. It seems to help.

David, have you tried it with Pandora? I think they stream at 128kbps. I listen to Pandora all the time, I should try Restore. Which setting do you use to most?

The HQ setting of the restorer seems to sound the best.

Of course, there's no way that digital data which have been discarded in the compression process can somehow be found and restored. What's gone is gone. Apparently these so-called "restorers" add a boost to the treble frequencies, since one of the effects of a high compression level is a roll-off in the treble.
