Hello people just am curious to know if there are any members here that has had the opportunity to compare the Monitor Audio Silver RS6 to the Axiom M60??? If so, how are they similiar? Conversely, how are they different??? Both cost about the same. I personally have never heard the M60's BUT have heard the M80's and needless to say I was and still am impressed. Been told the M60's sound bsically the same as the M80's so I have a good understanding how the M60's would sound. Anyone care to help me out here? Please feel free to elaborate in as much detail as you can. Thank you for your time.
Phil

It has been some time, but I recall another member stating that the RS6's did not provide the same bass quality or soundstage of the m60's, and they sounded a little thin. Your right if you've heard m80's the 60's are similar in sound. Can't help you on the RS6's.

I really don't, it has been probably a year or so. Not sure if that person is even around anymore, or what he actualy owns now.

I believe DOUBTINGTHOMAS29 made some reference to hearing them and not really caring for them.

It seems to me there have been quite a few comparisons in the past. Chess posted his thoughts on them along with some other speakers. I believe BigWill replaced his M60s with S8s.

I haven't heard the M60s, but I did listen to the Monitor Silver Series and I preferred the S6 over the other models. Thats just me, though, but my ears liked those best.
