Ok, so some time has passed since I listened to the M2's. I walked away convinced I just heard the best speakers I've ever personally heard. But, as time does its thing, doubt has begun to creep back into my brain. Could they really have been that impressive for me to drop that kind of coin?
Given that I know there are a number of guys on this thread on the East coast that are interested to listen to various designs, even if they're not necessarily in the market for new speakers, is there anyone that would be interested in joining me for a "mini-gtg" to have a listen to the M2's? I not only need to listen again for myself before I drop that kind of cash, but I admit I would like independent confirmation from some ears I know have heard many speakers to help validate my impressions. I do have this crazy(?) fear that I'm subconsciously liking these speakers because I'm told and read they "should" sound amazing.
If these speakers are what I think they were, then I'm very confident another pair of ears will hear it. If its not confirmed by other ears than I have to consider if I'm being bamboozled by a placebo effect or expectation bias. Knowing what I know of these effects, I want to be more certain. I worry I could be affected by the $10,000 cable phenomenon
Sooo, any east coaster up for an M2 listening session? Surely there is someone interested in expanding their speaker listening repertoire. Post analysis food and drinks on me.
Or is this crazy to even ask?
I know speaker selection is a personal thing, but if these speakers are the game changers I think they are it shouldn't be something that only I can hear
. After several gtg's I consider listening to new speakers as a social event and why shouldn't I tap the vast amount of experience of the members of this thread before I drop a typical 1 year salary on speakers? Also, these are high output 2 way compression driver designs with extension from 20Hz- 40 kHz which is a design right up the alley of most any enthusiast on this thread. Somebody must be curious enough to hear these, no?
