The dual-mono pink noise track on Editor’s Choice sounded hollow if I stood up but evenly balanced, uncolored, and smooth when I sat with my ears level with the M2s’ tweeters, which are 38.5″ from the floor. The pink noise sounded mellower than it had with the Q Acoustics Concept 300s that I reviewed in the January 2020 issue, but the central image of the noise signal was appropriately narrow and stable.
Stable, accurate stereo imaging was a consistent feature during my auditioning of the M2s. I have been a fan of pianist Mitsuko Uchida since Stereophile‘s then-publisher Larry Archibald and I saw her performing at London’s Royal Festival Hall the February 1986 night we sealed the deal on my replacing J. Gordon Holt as the magazine’s editor. A recent purchase was Ms. Uchida’s live 2010 Beethoven Piano Concerto cycle with Simon Rattle conducting the Berlin Philharmonic
