i'm actually leaning towards the factory outlet m22's. the reviews i've looked at seem to put the speakers in this order m40, then m3ti, and the best choice out of the three being the m22.
As far as a computer room system, my wife reminded me not to buy a system based simply on that room. i'm in an apartment now and hope to only be here for another year or two. i'm actually saving for a house, but that can wait until i get the system i want!
my budget can allow my to get the m22, and i do not really want to get a cheap, poor quality inteconnect. i 'm figuring i can spend up to $100. i really do not want to degrade the components with bad connections. ( if you can't stay under budget, get a new budget, right!)
i'm going to have to go with basic speaker wire for now though, that's where i'll cut cost for now.
