Man, I sure hope so. I am so over the speaker merry-go-round that has plagued me the last three years. The terrible and addictive habit of changing every so often is more expensive than just biting the bullet and paying for "the" speaker that continues to be in the back of your mind that you catch yourself always "wondering" about. I think each person has that "dream" speaker. Mine was the M2. I kept finding myself reading reviews from multiple forums and always wondering......
I fell in love with JBL back in the early 90s with the XPL-200s, which were a Greg Timbers design. From that day forward, I was a fan. Probably to a fault, but I just wasn't interested in other brands. I tried some here and there, but kept coming back to JBL. Eventually, I progressed to the pro cinema line moving through the 3677 and 4722s, which really took my home theater to another level. I would have never tried pro cinema if it weren't for the nuts here on AVS. I made some great virtual friends over the past couple of years in the 4722 thread.
I am hoping the M2 is the pinnacle of my JBL journey. As much as I have enjoyed the journey, I also want this to be the end of the road. Granted, these are not Everest or audiophile costs, but this was a substantial spend (at least for me) for a hobby. Thankfully,@John Schuermann
and @Rex Anderson
gave me great pricing on the M2s. In addition, @adidino
gave me excellent pricing on some 705i's. The 708s and amps I pieced together randomly from multiple sources.
If it weren't for used and B stock, I wouldn't/couldn't have done it. This was my max. Taking time and being frugal paid off. I have my dream system now. I am very excited to get it online. The JBLs combined with @dgage
amazing subs, this should be a winner.
