Yeah, I would say most that buy from monoprice didn't choose the M2 :D. The M2 is expensive and overpriced. But so are a lot of things :). But at least there is objective evidence that supports that...

Well, Monoprice speaker wire isn't highly regarded either, but we know their "audiophile" expensive cables are BS :).

Thank you. Those measurements for that line array look very good.

Then he'll be blamed for ruining their "awesome bass". :) Smile, tell them how awesome everything is, then go home and enjoy your own system.

I have never personally found the 708 to be harsh, those are others comments. I find the 708...
