Thanks for the photo for scale - I had pictured them in my mind as being a lot bigger from looking at the advert photos.
Every time I sit down with my M4's, I am astonished at how great they are... I mean, they'd be a good deal at twice the price, but at just under $1300, they're an unbelievable value. If I can tear myself away from listening to music long enough to do some writing, I'll blog about them soon.
I know how long and winding the road to speaker bliss has been for you Rebbi...I'm glad you've found a match. I'm loving mine as well...certainly an amazing value.
Mine have over 150 hours, and believe me they keep getting better... Smoother, more open or maybe better described as"more effortlessness"
Have any of the M4 owners compared the 4 to the 3? I am interested in the M3. My room is about 17 x 20 and I would be able to have them out about 3 feet.Any comments are appreciated.
Do you all think that the M3 inherently needs a larger room and more distance from the front wall than the M4?
Rebbi....Don't know if that question was directed to me, but my answer would be yes. In addition, I'm also "assuming" the characteristics of the M1 and M2 will pretty much mirror the M3 and M4. Just about a year ago my friend had the M1 Turbo and I had the M2 Turbo. ( which I still have) My observation at that time was that the M1 with roughly 1.5 times the driver radiating area of the 2 needed more room to breath. That would be both in distance from the front wall and overall room size. That doesn't mean the room has to be any larger than the average living /family room though. Some of the room sizes mentioned here ( 20 X 17 ) would be ideal. This allows at least 3 to 4 feet of breathing room behind the speaker and 9 to 10 feet to the listening position. In regard to the M2 Turbo, I have used it in a small listening room ( 10 x 11) with reasonable success as well. However you're not going to get that same totally open relaxed presentation achieved with more room volume. The presentation is much more upfront or "front row". Very listenable for sure, but the speaker doesn't disappear with the same effect it does in a larger space. For the record, the M2's reside in my family room which is a fairly large in comparison to the small room mentioned. In this room, they're supplemented with ACI Titan sub. The small room speaker is an Ohm 1000. Nothing I've used in this small room has matched the Ohm.
