    NateT,
    I feel the same way...my M3s are crisp, but certainly not overly bright. In fact, I would also say that they're revealing. After listening to them every single day for over 3 months, I have never experienced ear fatigue that is said to accompany extended listening sessions to speakers with titanium tweeters.

    We gave them about 48 hours of continuous CD playing as an initial break in, and then continual use through out the entire testing time.
    I've heard they need 200 hours for solid break in, but that just wasn't feasible for us. That may be part of the reason we felt they were bright, but I didn't think they were nearly as bright as Klipsch speakers.

    I happen to have some Axiom speakers that I really like. The VP150 center channel....very nice. As well as the EP-175 Sub. The sub, as well as all Axiom speakers, uses a Aluminum woofer and it sounds great...esp for music...very fast and precise!
    Also, Like PSB and Paradigm, these speakers are a better buy in Canada than in the US.

    JoelW,
    I'm not sure about the "200 hour" guideline, but I do believe that they should be broken-in for more than 48. However, I do understand your time constraints. Thanks for the review!
