Another thing to consider in the "real world" department is that it's not always easy to seamlessly integrate a sub with bookshelves. Sounds like you had a very good setup and experience with the M20s and a sub, but I know in my A/B comparisons of my M30s with sub vs. my M60s by themselves, I always prefer (on music, not HT) listening to the larger speaker that gets a fuller bass range integrated into it, vs the bookshelf with a sub. Some of that no doubt is because I suck at integrating subs and speakers. But then again, many of us do! So it can often be an easier way to get great musicality if you go with a larger speaker for music and forgo the sub.

My 2 X M2s + 2 X Ep400s driven by a 30 W/Ch tube integrated amp with no ability to EQ the sound in any way were quite easy to set up.

I set the Crossovers to 100 Hz & using a high quality SACD such as a Spyro Gyra track that has up front, dynamic & articulate bass content, I just progressively turn up the Gain until it sounds really, really good. Then back them down 1 notch or so & it is basically perfect for all well recorded music.

I haven't had to play with the settings ever since. Excellent system...
