Ian - We definitely need to add a pair of QS-10's here. They are perfect to replace the ACI Emerald On Walls.

Looking forward to your thoughts compared to the M50, Craig (if you still have that pair).

Ouch. Are you talking about the bookshelves m3's ? Or onwalls? The bookshevles with the right amp can put out a nice bit of bass. The onwalls.... no bass and definitely sub.

I am talking bookshelves. I have never heard the in or on-walls or in-celing. The M3s put out bass but it's not nice. Neither is the mid-range - not to my ears anyway. My Dreamcatchers blow them out of the water. The Dreamcatchers however bottom out with less than the advertised 80W/channel; Totem won't fess up to this. This is never a problem in my 2.1-channel space but it can be a limitation for others.

The M5HP will take care of all of this I am sure albeit at a larger size and more $.

I am referring to the M3ti BTW. I don't know about any other versions.

We still have the M50's ... We are finishing some remodeling, and when done, we will have five main systems.

System 1 - A pair of Klipsch LaScala II's in two channel.
System II - A pair of Legacy Signature SE's in two channel, bi-amped OR a pair of Axiom LFR-1100's taking turns.
System III - A pair of M-100's, VP180 HP, and soon to be QS-10's
System IV - A pair of M50's, VP150 and M3's
System V - A pair of Martin Logan Electrostats.

Both Audyssey and ARC allowed my on-wall M3s to be set at 70Hz without issue, which I currently just leave at 80Hz and use bass management, but I could see the M5 going deeper which would work nice for a 2.1 setup (or other application).

Not sure I see any point in the M50s and the M60s now either given the M5HP.

Since I've asked for both of these in the past, I suppose I should look at upgrading now. smile

EDIT: M5s ordered! Traded in my M22s purchased on 1/11/2011. That's 6 years minus 1 day. Hasn't felt that long. Shame my prize for helping name the LFR1100s had long since expired.

These will sound soooo much better than your M22s not only on the lower end but also the mid-range. Paired up with your EP500, it will be a dream in your large room!
