OK thanks - will have to inquire locally here in Australia. Can't wait to hear people's impressions of these. Are you getting some to complement your M2s? Also wish JBL would put out some detailed specs already.

Yes. My plan is for an Atmos setup with them.

That will make for one amazing sounding setup for sure! If you are getting them soonish, then I will definitely look forward hearing any impressions you care to write about them. Hopefully they end up sounding very similar to the M2s.

If they can get them close to the M2's I'll be thrilled. We'll see. The M2 remains the best speaker I've ever heard to this point though, so it's a high bar.

There's another GTG this weekend so I'll get another chance to compare the M2's to some more speakers. The last GTG an M2 amp died on me, so they were a bit crippled. This one I'll get to open them up for a group that has no idea of their output capability. Should be fun . I have to remember to bring my earplugs though. The M2's have such a remarkably low distortion that you don't realize the SPL levels. The last GTG we needed about 5-6 more dB at the mic position compared to the JTR's to feel a similar loudness. And that didn't surprise me since I knew they had significantly lower distortion than my JTR 212's. Hard to think that's possible if you were to hear the JTR 212's, but its true. I sometimes ring my ears at home because I don't realize the volume, so I have to be very cautious.

I was following the other GTG thread as well - pretty bad luck. Will definitely look forward to reading people's impressions from the new GTG. Got to say, from your comments, the M2s sound amazing. I'm really hoping the 7 series deliver as I don't really have a backup plan (the M2s are unfortunately beyond what I can afford). Anyway, I hope you all have a great GTG. Let the M2s rip!

Yeah, I'm hoping for good things from the 7's too. I'm only getting two initially to evaluate in my room before I pull the trigger on any others. There are too many options for surrounds with Atmos to make any rash decisions based solely on the fact that they have similar design elements as the M2's.

I planned to buy myself some M2s, but I think I will wait for more information on the 7 series. I hope to see some measurements.
