I think my Denon 3805 will be fine.




Yes, it will, but also make a good pre/pro down the line.

Are you getting them in the standard or custom wood finish? If you are going the wood route, I’d get the 60’s. The grills on the 80’s cover up too much speaker and if I was going through the expense of the wood option, I’d want to see it. Vain? Sure, but who doesn’t want a hot looking girlfriend.

If you’re just going the standard vinyl route, I’d suggest you get the 80’s. Only reason being, if you get the 60’s, you’ll be wondering ‘what if’ all the time.

Regardless of which one you get, you’ll be happy with both I’m sure.

Once again they are both great, if the budget is a concern you can always go with the 60's ,if you are not satisfied within 30 days you can upgrade to the 80's at just the upgrade cost, Axiom will cover the return shipment of the 60's.

I acually prefer my Axiom speakers with the grills on. The aluminum drivers look out of place to me. The Opus speakers look better with the grills off though. Their drivers just look cool and blend in well.

Yes, keeping the grilles on your real wood speakers is like making your girlfriend wear clothes.

I know what you meant, but just thought it was a funny comparison.

Depends on what you will use them for. Myself for example, I use mine for HT only. Not a big music listener. Really the only difference is that the 80's can play louder. I dont know how loud you need to get though, M60's will make you go deaf.
