Yea, I like the looks too. . And yes, that's a Manning bobble head, and a Steelers zombie. My wife is a big fan of Manning.

But I simply can't stress enough how unfrigging believable they sound . They are simply stunning. I won't say that they're "game changers" or the "absolute sound" because others have already said it. But I have no problem with those comments . If you're a speaker, you want to strive to be the M2.

And for those attending the upcoming GTG, you will all know I speak the truth.

And yea, this is the JTR thread and I told myself I wasn't going to talk about the M2's here. But you guys on this thread are the peeps I enjoy talking with on this forum. So deal with it!

@Archaea - ok, I have to somewhat modify my room treatment comments. My last comments to you regarding the room treatment difference was before I found the best place for the speakers in my room. I can certainly say the treatments made a fairly significant difference from the best I could do without them. They have sent these speakers over the SQ cliff. But in my defense it's hard to believe they had more to give.

I will not defend Tom Cruise, but the dude is a good actor and has been in allot of good movies. I mean the guy has given the bass crowd their fair share. My wife said the other night, "I hate him" and I asked why and she could not answer other than the scientology thing. I know he is a bit goofy in his personal life and different religious beliefs, but again he has had allot of good movies. I just always hear that everybody hates him, but all his movies are blockbusters? If you ever go to IDMB and go down his movie list, you pretty much have seen and liked most of his stuff. Another weird thing I found out is that he had a house down the road from me and I never even knew it?

My "old" Revel setup with JL subs (2 front, 2 back of the room). Note cable lifters (insulators) on the floor ... made a HUGE difference in the soundstage and timbral characteristics !!

Yea, I could see you needing cable lifters for those Revels. They look frail. But that "high end" voodoo isn't needed for the M2's .

Same thing with Oblivion. I didn't have any desire to see that until I heard it was getting good reviews around here...I LOVE that movie.

Haven't done the 5.1 mix yet. Funny enough, they sent me a replacement disc a few weeks ago with an apology, and I literally had to look up to see what the heck they were talking about. Turns out they had mixed the sub and left speaker or something out of phase so it was making for a pretty goofy sounding presentation...

Same here, wife will refuse to watch anything with him in it, but can't answer what upsets her so much about him. I mean, what actor's do in their personal time is not my business, I am only interested in the characters they are portraying when it comes to "movie time." It certainly doesn't hurt these performer's image when they are an upstanding person in real life in my book, but you have to appreciate their craft outside of that sometimes.

Didn't he jump up on a chair or couch on Oprah or something? That might be why a lot of women don't like him. The number of good movies he's been in is remarkable and goes way back.

Actually, they sounded fantastic right up to the point they didn't ... After a couple of adult beverages I'd try and do that concert thing or, with big action movies I wanted to feel the house move and inevitably the Revel's would start to break up and the Fathoms would start farting.

What was it you said about not liking limits? or was that compromises? ...

I got everything from GIK. The corner traps are the tritraps, the two on the wall up front are 5 inchers, and the 6 I have on the sidewalls are 3.5 inchers.

They were great to deal with and fast to ship.

WOW! I just looked up the JBL M2's. Are they really asking that much? Must sound awesome though. I can't imagine what they must bring to the table. Cause I get blown away with the 215's in all types of music and movies. High volumes too without distorting or gassing out. Those M2's must bring it to a whole different level.Nice Gooddoc.

I keep trying to force feed myself that album but I can't get into it - yet. I'll keep trying. The last one never clicked for me either - it's not that it has to be metal for me to like it because I LOVE the Damnation album and it's as mellow as it gets.

So far I've only heard the album on Spotify and you can tell the sound quality is excellent - I may have to go ahead and get the blu ray.

So just got done with TF4. Much like expected a drawn out popcorn movie with a terrific soundtrack. The soundtrack was very aggressive with a ton of bass that was decently varied from scene to scene. Not dying to re-watch it any time soon but chances are 1 year from now if I have a boring afternoon, I might just pop it in again.

TF4 was the most painful movie I've ever seen... Bay has jumped the shark.
Great effects, great sound for sure. But holy crap the plot line and acting is insane.

- "You're telling me we only have TWO MINUTES!!! TWO MINUTES!!!!" jeesh
- Chinese soldiers, speaking chinese. Commander comes over, gives orders to them in english. Really???
- Robot dinosaurs. Because of course.

Just a few of my many many observations of why I vowed to never spend money at a commercial theater again. This shoulda been a netflix view.

Dang guys, making me feel terrible about buying the 3 disc set! I got Godzilla at the same time though so perhaps it was not a wasted trip...

I couldn't stand Godzilla and not looking forward to T4 after past few pages. I was looking forward to the audio for sure.

I don't know what it is, but I still enjoy going every Tuesday to the store and picking movies out myself. I usually get 2 movies a week, I get the pick of the week and look for something older that I like. I actually love going to Best Buy because they have everything and allot of time really good sales like $7 BluRays. The last few weeks I have been getting one movie and a CD, I am really enjoying music again. I guess it comes from being a kid, I loved going to the record store and picking out music for hours. Man I wish music stores would make a comeback. Everybody keeps trying to event a new music player when we already have it with compact disc's and Vinyl. Luckily Best Buy still carries a good amount of music, hope they stay in business.
