My M3 Sapphire's are on the way...In Kansas City now headed to Florida. I cannot wait to get them going. Clayton has been great, as everyone has said, to work with. A man dedicated to his passion.
I have a pair of old DCM TimeFrame 1000's to replace. Will keep everyone posted. I am not capable of the in-depth reviews I have seen on these threads but I will give you my best attempts. Regardless, the DCM TimeFrame 1000's and the Buchardt S400's Special Editions have given me great pleasure. Currently running the S400's. Very good bookshelf speakers and highly regarded at its price point.
I bought M3 Sapphires based on hearing Youtube videos of the old M3's and said why not. Take a listen to this and look at Clayton's grin after the music. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmZnJC6Zwe0&t=842s
) I put my monies down based on this video, talking to Clayton, not wanting to wait in case the CAF caused a big backorder. How can you lose with a 60-day trial? I then heard them at CAF and meet Clayton. No going back. I was very impressed and thought the sound in that room was better than 99% at the show. Nothing came close at the $4200 point. This was later confirmed by written reviews. So it is now my turn, much to be grateful for.
