The M3's should be able to compete with Polk and Infinity in their respective price classes. What models did you own previously from each respective company?

See, I was so tempted to post that... but unlike Mark, I have some self control.

What's wrong with black? I like all my speakers to be black. I don't like any other color. I like all my components to be black also.

OK.I just find that any color other than black draws my attention to the speaker. I want the speakers to be invisible. I don't focus on black. The cherry would look so nice I wouldn't stop staring at them and then I would be reminded of where the sound is coming from.

Do you have any or all of the other speakers you listed to give a direct comparison?

That would be the best way to know if the M3's are actually "better" than the others.

Audio memory is very short term.

I think you will be very impressed with the M3's, but I have not compared them to any of the speakers you mentioned. I have run them A-B with my M80's, but that's apples and oranges.

Sure hope they live up to your expectations. smile

I still have the Polks. I'll know the second the music starts playing how they sound. I've always bought cheap budget speakers.

I think you will be impressed with the M3's.

I would never consider them (the M3's) cheap budget speakers.

They are fantastic speakers at a budget price. IMO. I would never give mine away, as I have with many other speakers I have owned.

Definitely do some A-B testing with the polks when you get them.

Be sure to post your views on the two.

I would be interested in the comparison.
