I think I am going to go with the m22ti but I want to make sure that I can't get comparable performance by spending about the same on speakers from more reputable companies. How does the m22ti compare to paradigm's mini monitor or mayben even studio 20/40, B&W's DM601 S3/ DM602 S3, Klipsch RB-3 / RB-5, etc... I should add that I prefer speakers with more forward sounding highs. My first speakers were Mission 701 that rolled off the highs and to me they sounded muted or even muffled. Initially I will pair the speakers up with my jbl pb12 and I am currently I am using jbl n38 as my mains.
