well, go ahead and buy the Yamaha if you really want to buy them! I have compared them side by side with the likes of Axiom M60, Axiom M22, Athena ASF-2 and even the Ascend CBM 170s (bookshelf). The Yamaha NS-777 sound very bland and muffled.
I get the picture. Yes i have an amp that handles 6 ohms. If you are saying you've TESTED both of them or rather all three of them then there must be some serious weight to your argument. Thank you all for being patient with me, i am just not a bookshelf fan. I will be buying the Axiom Mt3i's. Lets hope they turn out to be a good buy. Thanks for the input everyone. What cabling should i use for the axioms though.
Stands are not a bad idea, as it can bring the speaker up to listening levels (ear level when at your listening position. They don't have to be Axiom stands, you can get any brand you want, you can even make them yourself. Are you planning on getting a subwoofer?
Stands will be very good. They place the speakers to optimal height and give sufficent free space around them. Also they should be steady so that no resonance will go to other structures. Any stands will be good if they're the right size and sturdy enough. If you can fill the tubes with sand it will be even better.
buying a sub????????........wait i thought the reason i was buying the M3tise's and not the M2's is because i won't need a sub for music listening with the m3's. What's this about a sub? As i know for sure those Yamaha's don't need any subs heh heh heh........Also. My amp does not have a sub option. Tell me if i should not buy the M3's on that basis or not.
if you won't run a sub, then I would save up another $100 and get the M22ti instead of M3ti, it's one step up and have better bass respond. if you can't swing another bill then look in their B stock section, I believe you can get the M22ti for $360, 99% of the people who bought their B Stock said they couldn't find a single scratch on those so-called B stock, they were most likely just opened items.
