So.......I've had some time to break myself in to my M80's. I'll just touch on some of my initial impressions for now.
First off, these things are huge, but actually, they don't take up any more floor space than my M3's when they where on stands.
Next, the bass from these bad boys is incredible. They seem to energize the room, tight and fast when called for and low and lingering as needed. Probably the thing I have enjoyed most is being able to listen to music as low levels but still having the bass and incredible clarity. TV and movies are just that much better as well.
Another thing I have noticed is that it is hard to tell that there are two speakers playing unless the source calls for it. Even when off center, the sound seems to come from somewhere in between or even outside the speakers.
I have not found them to be bright or harsh in any way. Just detailed and clear. They like to be played loud and do so without effort.
Besides what I have mentioned, they are beautiful and the wife is even enjoying them.
Good stands for her Christmas knicknacks.
I know many of you have M80's, but I just wanted to post my thoughts on my newest additions. They are incredible speakers.
