Just read a review at Audioholics on the Rocket RS450 and was wondering why a reviewer would choose a much smaller M22 bookshelf to use as the reference speaker when it will be compared to a much larger floorstanding speaker? I am always amazed that the M22 gets compared to floorstanding speakers when it will always be lacking comparitively in the lower end due to the lack of chamber size.

My guess is that the M22 is true to the music or sound source and does not color the sound ie.if the highs are recorded too high or poorly recorded music, then that is what you will hear making it a good reference speaker.
