Thank you all for your advice!

I 'stole' 3 M3V2s for $150, on Craigslist.

Paint and clear cost a couple of bucks. I have a Monoprice 25 wpc hybrid tube amp which I got for ~$130. I have a little APTX blue tooth receiver (the blue tooth receiver in the Monoprice is not very good).

So my friend is getting a terrific sounding little system which cost me about $250. (Actually, these are the M3s I used to experiment with WIMA caps in place of stock, they maybe added another $25 to the cost, don't remember exactly)

Now he can enjoy all the Iranian music he can handle.



As for me, I just read Steve Beaudette's glowing review of the M5 speakers and I'm thinking I'd like to have a pair in one of my systems.

You're welcome for the excellent tips I gave you on what NOT to do.

Do you know how far apart Steve had his M5s, how far they were placed from his front and side walls and how far away he was sitting? This would have all been useful info.

I'd love to know if the soundstage holds together if they're 9 apart and I sit 14' away.

Steve spoke highly of them and it's what I expected given their ground up design which included optimization of the family of curves, newer generation of crossover, cabinet and midrange baffle design, v4 tweeter and HP driver.

This is one of the few three-way speakers on the market and like Craig has said, along with an EP500, it's a high end system for a great price.

I want a pair too for the living room. I'll wait for the wireless version. I am even questioning if they might be an upgrade to my M80v2. Ian figures they don't have enough 'nad-mass for me.

No 'nad-mass in M3s no matter what color they are.

Dude,I'm consuming sarsaparilla.

I decohered a long time ago into the energy eigenstates of my Hamiltonian, man.

I haven't found an alternative to the unbearable photobucket. Any suggestions?

So, Mojo, what's the Hamiltonian on das ganze Ding?
Large is its Hamiltonian. (Yoda)
