Reading through the forums here it seems there's a lot of love for the M3 but not so much for the M50. I'm confused by that as I thought they were essentially the same speaker.

There are those that still have and love their M50's, but IMO, the benefit and love for the M3 is due to the illusion of more bass from a small bookshelf speaker. This is now a moot point when moving up to the floorstanders.

and the M3s are half the price of the M50s which helps the love.

I haven't heard M50v3s (I have v1s), but I have to say my M80v2s are much better. So were the M3v2s that we tested against them. Jason will remind everyone that part of the reason for this was that for half of the test, the M50s were out of phase...

That's because Ken forgot that the Double Blind Listening Test is after you hook the speakers up.

Anyone done a Double Blonde listening test? standing between two blondes having a conversation about integrated amplifiers?

That's exactly what I'd be talking about in that situation.


Oh yeah, integrated amplifiers.




Ladies, where are you going?
