Returning to this forum after perhaps 5 years, it is great to see the long time forum members like JohnK, pmbuko, jakewash and many others still giving their objective views on Axiom products.

As life has moved on with so many ever increasing responsibilities, I realized its time to also acknowledge the little things that make the next day worth looking forward to.

The first thing I did was to stop logging into FB. There was so much time freed up after that. I began calling my friends and dear ones over the phone. The sound of their voices beats any social networking site.

The next thing was to go back to my prized possessions that put a smile on my face. I realized how much I missed listening to stereo music. The wife and kids were out one evening. It was time for Metallica, Led Zep, Norah Jones, Mark Knopfler etc. Listening for an hour was so good. These 2001 M3Tis still belt out superb midrange, great highs and sufficient lows. Michael Nyman's "The Heart asks Pleasure First" took me to a great high and "I Gioni" by Ludovico Einaudi nearly brought a tear to my eyes. There is no need to go in for another review. Enough has been spoken. These are simply fantastic, heirloom level speakers.

Do I intend to upgrade? No. I have what I need and more in these speakers.

Thank you to all the members of this great forum. You guys do wonderful work in small ways by supporting newbies and giving very very objective feedback. More importantly thank you Axiom for bringing great products at affordable prices for people in the third world too.

Shankar, good to hear from you again, and congratulations on your escape from Facebook!

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Thank you John, great to hear from you too. Yes, the great escape from FB was necessary I feel. Don't get me wrong, it is a wonderful site for information. But getting to the right information is after laborious scrolling.

Funny how time tempers emotions. I'm not getting all teary but I posted this more out of thanks to this forum and its members who steer people towards what they will need. Stalwarts like you guys who are loyal to the cause make it possible.

Of late, I've been using the M3s as monitors when I connect my Yamaha keyboard. And wow, the DACs on the Yamaha really bring life through the speakers. Anyway, that's another story.

Good to see you again. You have 10305 posts! Its time Axiom gave you guy a free HT system.

Thankfully I'm too old to have joined the 'social media' thing; however, since I updated all of my Axiom sound systems starting in 2010, I began hanging out here with all of the fine folks who provide so much good natured banter here. This is in contrast to some of the other sites where nastiness is so prevalent.

I too rekindled my long but waning interest in my sound gear & spend far less time watching TV than I used to.

Anyway, welcome back, & be aware, upgradeitis may strike, especially with Axiom's new model lines enticing you, ha!

Indeed. Its fun to see all the things that Axiom is up to, but all I need to do is put on some of my favourite tunes and maybe a rumbly movie to remind me that I got exceptional value for my money.

Nice to hear from you.
A person convinced against their will is of the same opinion still.
