    Very interesting activity,but Salon and M2 are totally different system.

    They represent two different routes to the same destination, that being the target behaviours of a good sounding loudspeaker as determined by the research of Toole and Olive. As such they are comparable sonically.

    Yes, the DD67000 are a bit smoother than the DD66000, but probably not quite at the level of the Revels. But as we all know, the perception of a speaker's performance is comprised of many factors.

    The Revel Salon2 is an incredibly well executed speaker and an extreme value, but it is not the speaker I would choose. If I had to live with them I could make that sacrifice.

    I auditioned the Salon 2's and loved them. They are on my long term radar...kinda of a "next gen" 250Ti if you will, designed by that Snell guy...

    My opinion only: Salon's sound like a very good speaker; M2s sound like music, with no speaker intervening. YMMV. At this level you need to audition any candidates for yourself.

    In the context of your prior post any loudspeaker reproduction is only an illusion?

    You mean it isn't? There's a real orchestra inside those monkey coffins?

    Absolutely. But for me, the M2 creates a more believable illusion than any other JBL I've ever heard (even more so compared with the Revels). But each of us is satisfied by a different illusion. That's why there's no such thing as one speaker that's perfect for everyone. It's also why anyone interested in spending this much money on speakers is crazy if they don't audition them in person for themselves. If you don't, you're just chasing ghosts.

    Not wanting to go too off topic but.........

    Itís not a bad way of looking at it but l do know of those that will beg to differ on whether the live concert sounded any good or not? Some old coots think their Hifi sounds better.

    Was it the silly old fart blowing his nose down in the front row, downright crapp acoustics or he forgot to get his ears waxed?

    Whatever!

    If you are familiar with Maslows hierarchy of needs l prefer to subscribe to that for audio reproduction where the more you move up the scale of superior audio the more you need the ultimate.
