feeding this old topic as it was quite influential in me becoming an M3 owner (Turbo S)I am on day three - so about 25 hours of break-in so far ... As you will note if the photo works these are in a small room (12 x 14) - ... I have option of moving to 18 x 35 living room; ...
I have been complaining about my small room for ages and have cycled a bunch of different gear through - some has worked better than others. Probably should have bought M4s but was future proofing for future rooms. And getting to point between poor recordings and the room high end audio seems like a fool's errand.SF Dude - raided the cupboards this morning and put some heavy fabric up behind each speaker (covers a window and exterior door that we don't use like drapery). Made a huge difference so far - especially with bass and calming energy down. Not sure what I could do more permanent - maybe drapes on the window and door. Will have to consult my interior decorator (she won't like me using her duvet covers). May have to do some research on absorption / diffusion -just not sure what would fit in my room - with window, door and fireplace as back drop.Omegas have been on my list forever - but think the M3s are here for 2017 minimum.
David...My room isn't that big 22'x13'...
David and Sunnydaze,I owned a pair of Omega speakers and subs (at the time it was Louis' best speakers) and they were indeed a very nice speaker. Also, Louis is a an awesome guy and great to deal with! That said, they are very different from the M3's and even with subs won't be as complete a solution as the M3's. I also think that the M3's will provide more detail and depth.My room isn't that big 22'x13' and I definitely notice a difference when I add or remove room treatments (I have a ton from RealTraps and GIK). Hang in there and try a few different things before giving up.I haven' tried the M3's in my living room which is pretty big with 19' ceilings, but I bet they would sound quite good in there...George
Once the Christmas tree is gone the M3's will be spending time in my larger living room.
I've just joined AudioCircle because I was impressed by the posts on this topic. I wonder if some of the Spatial Audio M3 owners who listen to classical music could offer some more information on what the strong and weak points are? In particular, has anyone come across harmonic and intermodulation distortion measurements on these speakers? I understand why my ancient AR-3as (bought in 1972, and recently restored by me) have low distortion: Air makes a pretty linear spring. Don't get me wrong, I know a lot of improvements have been made since those days, that's why I'm in the market for something better!Thanks in advance!
Thanks, I read it before, but it was fun to read it again, the reviewer is a talented writer!
So at what Volume level should I be braking my M3 Turbo in at. Currently I am running a Bass Warble track at a pretty high level, but how do I know how much level these speakers can handle, how loud is too loud? any experience and suggestions is appreciated.
