I want to second Gooddoc's comments above re: the JBL M2. High detailed sound and an even, flat response at any volume level is a specific design goal for many of the Harman branded speakers,...

Makes sense.

I do understand your Synthesis dealer's decision not to include actual JBL Cinema speakers in systems, though. I stay away from it myself if at all possible. I do have some experience...

Just in case you don't like the XTC Cinemas, why not take a look at the speaker brand(s) that most movies and music are mixed on - JBL and Revel? You can easily get the Revel Concerta2s for under $4K...

I haven't really listened to the cheaper JBL product so really can't comment. The same design philosophies run through the Harman lines, though. Infinity is a brand they have kind of ignored lately...

When you say $60K, I am assuming you mean between the Revel Salons and the two ML MonoBlock amps? To be fair, you are only talking $52K, not $60K ;)

Unless you are talking two amps per speaker,...

And let's not forget the JBL 4367, which has the same drivers as the M2 and doesn't require any DSP or special amp requirements :) It will, however, still benefit from an SDEC calibration.
