Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Re: My tastes in sound seem to be virtually identical to yours.

Yes, but there are electrostatics and electostatics. One guy who heard the M40's in my house said they sounded like full range Quads. I took that as a compliment. They didn't sound that way to me, but maybe that's my aging ears.

I never found Compact 7's tizzy but I did find them a little boxy sounding in a large (5,000 cubic feet) room. Actually, I believe they have a slight dip built into their upper midrange to compensate for a boost in that area produced by close room boundaries in the smaller rooms they're intended for. The M30's had none of that...they share the same tweeter with the M40's.
