Am using my M3's along with an (probably) ill-placed sub for my TV. But my audio-only system uses my M50's, purchased ...oh several months ago.

A handful of times switching from system to system, it has nearly caused my jaw to drop. Let me just say that the M50's are also not optimally placed due to my extremely small and cluttered room.

And yet: the M50's are, I would say, "instruments". They are like my 1959 acoustic guitar which is wonderfully dried out and light and just "hums". The M50's simply jump to life. They sing. They play. They are instruments.

ok that's all. I love them. Wish I had more time off to just sit and listen.

It's as if these speakers are alive, when fed the signal.
I don't know about math and cabinet formula, but these guys have it going on.

Em, the M50s aren't one of Axiom's top sellers, and it's great that you gave that pair a good home. In turn they're making a special effort to make you happy with their beautiful sound.

I noticed that the M50's don't seem to be one of the main speakers - that there aren't as many reviews, for example.

In my little space they are amazing they just get up and sing, and without any train wreck type of sound. Other floorstanders I've had just didn't work for me.

I feel so fortunate to have finally found my speaker now. For the first time in my life, I feel no need whatsoever to upgrade. They allow the music I listen to to sound just great.

It's so bizarre - not to want or feel the need for new speakers, for once. Every once in a while I get lazy and forget how good they are and I just run my music through my TV system - which sounds good, too. Been then when I go ahead and switch over to the audio system, it just blows me away.

Have you ever met people who could just naturally "dance"? like they have a real talent? that's what I want to say about these speakers. they're "talented". Now I know for sure when something sounds a little dead, or like a wet blanket, that it's my source material.

Again, I just feel really fortunate to have them. I almost didn't get them, because I thought they would be too large.

Great post, Auntie Em! "Talented!" Now there's a good word. They sing; I dance.

Glad you're still hot for them M's. I am.

Axioms' new tag line: "These don't have any train wreck type of sound"!

I love it! smile
