Hajimema****e! ;) I'm a noob here. I am impressed with the knowledge base here. I am not an audiophile or can/will pretend to be. I don't have the disposable $ to be either. I have been a musician/songwriter for years, though. That is how I approach sound equipment, as a musician.
I just ordered a Pearl White version of the M-80. I researched quite a bit on the Internet. The forum reviews here cemented the purchase for me. It will take a couple day before they come in from Amazon.
