I've have had M3si's, an MCsi, and OM10's for surrounds, as well as the Mirage wall mounted bipoles (can't remember the names just now) for a decade. I loved every minute of music and movies through the Mirages. Especially, 2-channel listening via the M3si's. There were literally only two drawbacks: They are monolith-sized speakers, and because they are wide (rather than narrow and deep) they "feel" even larger. I know the M5's are smaller, but as I recall they're still fairly imposing. Secondly, in order to sound their best (holographic, deep soundstage, balanced, etc.) I always found my M3's needed to be about a yard out from the rear wall (ie., the wall where your display would be) and at minimum, a couple of feet from any (hopefully symetrical) sidewalls. If your listening room can accomodate those constraints, you may be as thrilled as I was with my setup for many years.
