twoears, do yourself a favour, go out and get yourself a set of Paradigms Studios. You simply can't go wrong.

Sorry folks, I feel no obligation to Axiom!

Oh no, now I’ve gone and done it ;\) \:\)

Hey Marco, feel free to drop by. I'm still testing different configurations. Last night I tried my AX 1.5 as a center and it sounded really good. There is a chance that I don't order the vp-150 and take an additional m3/m22/m60/m80 instead. I may end up with 3xm80 in the front, the deciding factor will be the height of the speaker. I don't want my center to cast a shadow on my screen.

I will place my order in the second week of April, allow a three weeks delay (factory outlet).

Don't wait for the m80! come and see, it's worth the trip.

Hi lhulls,

I suppose you are right for the quantitative aspect. Since I will use the system only at moderate volume, M22 or above is enough.

I wonder about the quantitative aspect though. I want something that will render my music (cool jazz, vocals and classical) well. Does anyone know about the M22/M50/M60 in that respect?

You seem to be acquainted with the MAs. Have you had a chance to compare them with the Axioms?

If you are willing to pay the premium for the MA's, I would buy them. I found them to be very good, nicely detailed, just haven't had a chance to get them A/B'd with my Axiom's. I still prefer the Axiom sound but then again this is what I am used to. \:\)

You seem familiar with the sound of all three. How would you compare them for music rendering?

Do you think the M50 and M60 have enough bass for music, and acceptable HT in an apartment?

I have not heard the M50, just know about it's sound from the forums, the M60 has more than enough bass for music and I think would be acceptable for HT, if a sub is not desired, but there really is no substitute for a sub with HT. I think the M60 might sound the closest to the MA's, I have only listened to MA's in a store and the M60s in my own home, so take it FWIW.

I'll probably be shot for this, but I'd get the M60s out of those 3. I have the M50s as well as the M80s and M22s, and I've heard the M60s. The M22s, M60s, and M80s are pretty similar in terms of soundstage, imaging, and general sound. The M50s are good, and certainly have more bass than M22s. They're not quite as detailed (although we're really splitting hairs here) and the soundstage isn't quite as good. Either that or they're more picky about placement.

Caveat: I have the M50tis. It's certainly possible that the M50v2s have significant improvements.

Either the M50s or the M60s will take care of you as far as bass for music, and should be adequate as far as HT, as long as you're not expecting anything seriously rumbly.

Loc: It's all about the location.
It's entirely possible that the RS6's sound closer to the M50's as they are similar in design...2 1/2 way vs the 3 way design of the M60s and M80s. Regardless, they are an enjoyable speaker to listen too.
