I posted last week about my experience with M3ti's and am sorry to report that I've decided to return them. With the old Bose 301s back temporarily, I really want new speakers!! The M3s are so much better, but overall the Axiom sound just wasn't for me. So I'm still in the hunt for new bookshelf speakers. I'm rethinking Paradigm and Monitor Audio and would like to see what JBL has to offer, as they seem to have a lot of support on this and other forums. I'll get matching surrounds and center once I find a front pair I like enough.
