Hello,

I was just wondering how everyone is enjoying their speakers? I am really curious what everyone owned before they finally settled.

I just bought new speakers but i still want a full set of axioms.

I'm probably not a good one to comment here, because the only other speakers I've had any experience is some Bose 901's back in the 70's and a HTIB before buying Axioms. Also, I don't have the M80's but I have 2 sets of M22's that I use; click on link in my signature line.

Watching movies at home is much more enjoyable that watching them in a theater, IMO, even though my current screen is only a 37 inch tv. I am in the process of converting a lower floor at home into a small theater with a 100 inch projection screen that will have 3 M80's behind it.

Been enjoying them for nearly 7 years. Before that it was a pair of Def Tech Pro Tower 400s and before that was a set of Bose 901s.

I love mine, same as my friends that come over and are interested in audio. The only problem that I have is that I can't enjoy them as much as I would love to smile I have a small child that goes to bed early so most of the time I have to listen to them at very low volume.

I've owned most of the lineup, except m40's and m50s, love all of them, but the M80's are awesome.

Before my M80's I owned (and still do) Large Advents and Infinity Kappa 8's.

Naw, I love 'em. Most of the time, like Bruno, it's at low volume, where they still sound great. But when you can crank 'em, they sound amazing. Before the 80s, I owned M50s, and before that Cambridge Soundworks Ensemble 1s. We shall not speak of what was before that.
