I am a former Magnepan owner. There were a lot of things i really liked about those speakers, but as a rocker, I was never really happy with their dynamics or bass performance. So back in 2003, I jumped onto a demo pair of Dynaudio Contour 3.0 speakers. Overall, i have been pretty happy with these, but lately have been feeling a little bored. You know how it goes.
I am intrigued with the Spatial Audio offerings, but I am wondering if they would be a good fit for me. I guess i tend to prefer a more laid back presentation. I'll give an example. Back in March, before the shutdown, I visited a local audio shop. I auditioned speakers from Dali, Focal, and Revel. They were all very nice, but out of those three, I liked the Revel Performa3 F208 the best. It seemed the most coherent to me, and had the most natural frequency response. I have learned the hard way that things that seem impressive at first can become fatiguing over time.
It's very hard to pull the trigger on expensive speakers without hearing them in person, so I am asking for owner opinions. How would you describe the presentation of the M3 Sapphire, for example?
