    I recently visited my local retailer and fell in love with the VR-M50 speakers. They sounded so full and life-like. BUt it didnt take me long to figure out that they were paired with a 1000 watt subwoofer (pv-1000) and that was the kicker. I wanted to buy the VR-M50's but was not interested in a subwoofer beacuse it simply wasnt fit for my living environment. So i was wondering if anyone out there has had experience with the VR-M50's without the 1000 watt sub. And if you have what are your reactions on it. Thanks

    Andy,

    I'm familiar (very) with the entire VR-M line (follow my sig line and you'll know what I mean). They are all excellent (including the PV-1000 sub even though I replaced it with a better sounding SVS). The entire VR-M line is fantastic, and if Boston Acoutic's reputation were based on them, you'd hear a lot more about that company.

    All that said, if you like the sound of the M50s, but won't be pairing them with a subwoofer, I'd spend the extra for the M60s. In choosing my speakers I fell in love the with the VR-M sound, and was really hoping to not hear a difference between the M50s/M80s and the M60s/M90s... Unfortunately for my wallet, I most definitely did hear a difference.
