I still recommend them to people all the time via PMs. I do prefer the M2s over the 4722 with 2 channel music, but for someone who is primarily home theater the M2 isn't worth the extra money in my opinion over the 4722 (upgraded compression driver). I bet the Be driver would narrow that gap even further. The primary advantage of the M2 appears to be the wave-guide and active equalization/tuning files. These M2s make the soundfield do things I didn't experience during critical listening with the 4722. In all fairness, I never tried active equalization and PEQ with the 4722 so there is another area that would improve the 4722. In short, during a movie soundtrack where one is captivated by video and bombastic audio, the M2 and 4722 are far more similar than different with both providing amazing presentation and authority. Would I part with my M2s - absolutely not; but, if the 4722 was the only speaker I owned for the rest of my life, it would be a great life.
