Do any of you guys have any experience with these Ascends? I guess that the 22's are going to be the closest comparison in the Axiom line(maybe). Does anyone have any sonic impressions on these two that they would like to share?

I've been wanting to do a side by side with those Ascends for awhile. (are you listening Curtis?)

Yeah yeah....we should.

If I bring the 340's to your place, do you still have some stands we can put them on? The stands you used to use with you M22's?

Yep. I've got two sets of stands. Small taller, some shorter.

I've compared the 22's and the Ascend 340's side by side.

There should be a review in a thread called "speaker face off" (or something close to that) from a while back.

From what I recall, the M22 had more detail, but the 340's had a fuller sound. Both were good speakers and I don't think you could go wrong either way.

Wasn't that the M22 and the CBM-170?

We had a couple of different comparisons...I heard the 340s and the 170s at different times.
