First of all great series of posts and pleasantly civil.I totally get "IT" but sadly can't explain it either. What came to mind is how I could walk into Klaus's Odyssey room at any show and get "IT". I've owned pieces of his gear and while they don't measure the absolute best and they can side by side be bettered by numerous others, taken as a whole his systems are off the hook enjoyable. There is no urge to pick them apart in an audiophile sport sort of way, though you probably could. Anyone who has heard this knows of what I speak. Meticulous attention to setup and synergy yes, but there is some other mystery at play there.We both have Vinnie Rossie's LIO and the same can be said for its component parts. Side by side are there better DACs, preamps, power amps, etc? Absolutely yes, but taken as a whole it comes across as completely and thoroughly enjoyable. I don't find myself yearning for more.I owned some of Clayton's first EP CS2's. Out of the box they were simply fun. They were right next to a beautiful pair of beloved Merlins, all buttoned down, and ultra refined, but ultimately I listened to the CS2's more. It wasn't until I started tweaking them to the 9's that I went down that slippery slope of critical audiophiledom and the fun quickly vanished. I'm glad to hear the Spatials somehow get you there too and knowing Clayton's work as I do it's no surprise. All that said, I'm sorry I'm not of much help to 'splain it but I'm sort of in my happy place too
jtwrace,I am considering auditioning the M3 and was anxiously awaiting some comments from you. I hope your transition from excitement to silence does not imply dissatisfaction with their performance. Any comment on their early character/synergy in your system?
As an aside, the M1 and M2 are no longer listed on the Spatial Audio website.
Jason's an objectivist, so don't expect much more than comments whether they measure up to their published specs.
Hello-I've been listening to them quite a bit. I'm in the process of selling my house and things are moving much quicker so my audio will be coming apart very soon. However, I've had a lot of time listening to the M3 Turbo S speakers. In a nut shell, they're amazing! I can't recommend them highly enough regardless of cost. I can give more input when time allows but they're worth every dime they cost.
Just curious from you guys that own the M3 (or M4), what would you say are their greatest attribute?
I'll be posting a complete review of the M4 tonight or tomorrow on my audio blog, but for now I'd say that relaxed, uncompressed dynamics, rich, realistic tone and holographic imaging are stunningly good.
Would you say that the M4 has, more or less, on a scale of 10, diffuse or pin point imaging?
