I think you might be able to post pics in the gallery section.

Much cleaner sound as compared to my M60Ti set of towers. I feel the imaging of the new M5s is awesome....makes me wonder about the M50, but hey for $350 for the M5s, it was a no brainer.

Demoed a few more goodies as heard on this Forum.

Supertramp: Brother where you Bound
Steely Dan: 2 Against Nature
Cowboy Junkies: "Mining for Gold"
Diana Krall: SACD "The girl in the other room"

Then John Wick 2...opening car scenes.

I was very impressed by the bass response when listening in 2 channel...

what else can I say...

That's pretty much what I'd expect given the M5s sounded much better than my M80v2. I think the M50 would be like the M3v4 with deeper bass. With the M50, you'd miss the tight bass, beautiful mid-range and sweeter highs of the M5. Now the M60...that might sound better than the M5s...dunno. I am thinking I might give digital active LFR660s a try when available. If the M5s came in an active LFR version, I'd be very happy because I don't see the reason, in a subwoofer-based system, for having an additional woofer like the 60 has other than increased sensitivity.

It would seem there's always a trade off.
