Blair, I'm a few weeks away from freeing up another room. It's 10x10x7'2". Do you think M100s, an EP800 and an ADA-1500 will be enough for that room?

To square Tex

You'll need one of those audiophile record\media stands to shorten one of the walls.

I bet it would still be awesome either way.

As much as I praise the M3s for their imaging and soundstage, they pale in shame when compared against the M5s. The mid-range and HP drivers make all the difference!

My friend noticed when I listen to the M3s I toe tap and move my head rhythmically. When I listen to the M5s on the other hand, I sit very still and move my eyes around from side-by-side.

Have your M50's showed up yet ? My guess is that you will really like them... but ebony finish takes time.

I still really enjoy my M40s although I get the impression that M50s are better balanced. So far nothing has gone deeper in my living room than the M40s.

I don't think the factory has started on them yet. I got ebony vinyl not real wood. I've always gone black oak but I was told the ebony is real nice so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I've really been enjoying the M3s in the living room.

Ebony vinyl - neat, I didn't know that was an option.

I still cringe a bit when I type "vinyl" but nearly all of my Axioms are vinyl and everyone who has ever seen / touched them thinks they are real wood.
