I was curious because there is a very nice review of the M-S Performance 6 loudspeaker in the current issue(Sept) of Stereophile. It said the pair was $6500.00 a pair. I wondered if you were comparing the Axiom to a $6500.00 speaker. I tested Triangle Celius, Paradigm Studio 100v3, Sonus Faber Grand Piano and a few other higher end speaks before ordering my M60ti's. I'm still in the 30 testing phase but I believe I will be keeping these. Keep in mind none of those mentioned are in the price range of the M-S Performance 6. and I working off memory. None of the comparisons were side by side. Glad your happy with your new SVS sub.Keep posting you evaluations. We're interested in hearing the comparison.

Atta boy, Rick. Now you've got it narrowed down to the point where Axiom will know what action to take. I'm sure they'll fix you up just fine.

I checked M-S 502 online and they look very good indeed. Also considering that they are some British speakers. The price was 999 British Pounds (more than USD 1700) but not sure if that price was for the pair or for a single speaker. Rick, did you get them free shipping?

One thing I noticed, they have an integrated sub (in the speaker) similar to Aperion Powered Towers. I am not sure that this would be a perfect choice vs. two normal fronts with a sub combo. Also positioning in the room would be more difficult. Rick, please let us know your findings from the audition.

More than double the price of M60s it looks.... Please let us know what you think after you audition them side by side.
