The M22 + sub is almost indistinguishable from the M60. The big advantage of the M60 is the bass extension for two channel music.

Fred, If a M22 + his sub is almost Equal to a M60, then wouldn't a M60 + his sub be considerable better?

Gary, if the same sub is used in both cases, obviously the bass handled by the sub will be the same in both.

As to the mid-range, keep in mind that the M22 uses two of the same 5 1/4" drivers, while the M60 uses one. Although this isn't a "huge" matter, the M22 does have the ability to play a bit louder in the all-important mid-range.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

I always enjoy the repartee that good friends indulge themselves with in forums. smile

So many helpful comments, making this decision even more difficult.

After thinking things over I am really leaning towards the M22's for now with the QS8's. For stereo listening I have my vintage gear which still sounds amazing so the new rig will be mostly for movies. And if I do decide to go "Big" later, I can simply slot the M22's into the "High" or "Wide" position.

I have to go out of town for a few days, but will let you know next week when I have placed my order.

Have to add I have looked at some other "Speaker Forums", but this one is by far the most fun I've seen, and if you pay attention you'll learn a few things as well.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. grin

Well, you're obviously doing something wrong! grin

Congratulations on your decision!

I have a couple of M22V3s perched on a couple of 10" Velo subs (as stands).

At just over $500 per channel, this wonderful 'bang for the buck' combination.

No upgraditus here...

Belgarath, you'll be very happy with the M22s. As already noted, they play really nicely with a sub. If and when you move up, the M22s make a great secondary system for a bedroom or as fill speakers, like you mentioned. My guess is hardly anyone here gets rid of their M22s when they upgrade.
