This is exactly what I wanted to hear!! (No pun intended)
I need to test a set out ASAP!
I heard the M2 last year at the AES show.
I have liked horn systems for some things, but don't like a lot of the "traditional" ringing and distortion that can be generated. It ain't there in this system.
I think system has to be stressed when talking about this speaker system. Its designed as a package and that is what delivers the performance, no mixing and matching here. Could it be done? Perhaps, but they did their homework on this system.
I did not have as long to hear it as Idlewild82 did, lucky dog, but it was immediately apparent that this a quality product that helps move the goal post.
I don't think you could fit this into a room and have another system in as well, not gonna happen.
I am a music industry professional and hear lots of systems and rooms, I work with mastering engineers and studios primarily, but have spent my time in the trenches mixing live shows (mostly acoustic, folk, big band, trad, jazz etc)
and I repeat, it was amazing.
no paid endorsement, Harmon and JBL have pissed me off plenty over the years, but they did a great job on this.
Idlewild, could we have a report on actually living with the system??
