Well... It is very similar to the Hsu VTF-STF-3 ... and is an excellent value. It was not compared to a PB1+, It WAS compared against a PB2-ISD... which found what you would expect... both were darn good... with the PB2 going deeper and louder... having two drivers of roughly the same capacity and twice the internal volume will do that.

Another way of looking at it, Take the Outlaw, make it into twin drivers in twice the cabinet volume and amp... and you will have an Outlaw LFM-2... if that makes sense...

Great choice though... for $579, you got a screaming deal.

Craigsub,

Let me check into the M80ti's and I'll get back to you. I'm sure I can arrange it. It may be a few days because I'm busy cranking out our Axiom AudioFile newsletter at the moment and until that's written. . .well, you understand.

Regards,

AH! Another wonderful visual image. Wall mounted M80s. You have a perverse mind, Mark. I love it!

No, I actually need the FMBs for my QS8s.
I'm not perverse, just cheap.

I do look forward to your review of the M80's also.

Any idea which speakers you are planning to compare the M80s to, craigsub?

From the looks of things... Ascend 340 ... $698 with stands, Rocket 550's or 1000's... or maybe both... the 550's are $999, the 1000's are $2800... and the Onix Ref 3's at $4500 Retail, though a lot less for all the Rockets in a system...

And possibly some Swan's... they look to have some new designs coming out.

The Ref 3's are in here to provide a base... I have compared them to the Legacy Focus (Which I was all set to buy) at $6800 and the B&W 801 Nautilus, and I ended up preferring the Ref 3's to either...

With 5 or 6 speakers in the mix, this will be no simple test... we will use the same Mcintosh amp ... and mono testing, all blind, of course.

As this goes on, we may add a subwoofer into the system, which is a snap with the Mcintosh.

mmmmmmmmmm Mcintosh

Wish my dad would part with his old Mac now so I don't have to wish for his passing and that whole inheritance thing.

j/k
