jhas, are you gonna entertain us by telling us how the M5s sound compared to those old M60s?

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.

Mojo ,

Would the QS10s be ok 8 ft away. I cannot put them anywhere else because of the size.

My QS8s are 1ft in front of my seating now.The one side the QS8 hangs of the support beam and any other position other than were they are now or at the 8ft point we would walk into them .Not me I'm short but my wife is tall.

My one concern is the size of the QS10s .I should make a size as mockup and see how it looks .
