Loc: Los Angeles recommendation is based soley on the 1000's of other posts on the board over the past 2+ years that say the M3/M40/M50 sound more similar and the M2/M22/M60/M80 sound more similar.

I wish I could hear them though!

So far I've only heard the M2i, M22ti, and M60ti.

Oh, I'm sure they do. I just wonder if it's all based off of Alan! Peter's probably heard the most different kinds, but I'm pretty sure he's only compared the M22s and M50s in one session. Then again, maybe it's NH.

What if I put my m3s in the middle of the room, to either side, up on stands. I could kind of swivle them to which ever end of the room I was in?

As a proud new owner (2 weeks after 1 1/2 years of research) I've found that the best way to listen to Rock albums on the M3s is to turn them to small and set the crossover at 60Hz or higher. I use them without a subwoofer and the albums still sound fine. The M3s do not have a low pass filter (at least from what I've read and observed) and will try to reproduce the entire low end frequency spectrum, which is wonderful for acoustic performances but not that great for hard rock; especially poorly recorded rock albums.

The major benefit of taking M3s over M2s is the ability to have deeper bass extension, so if it sounds too boomy on hard rock albums maybe you should go to the M22 or the M2 and pair it with a subwoofer.
