Did someone say buttload?


The one and only Jennifer Lopez.

That ebay auction is now at $1,403.00 with 52 min. to go. Add in $300 shipping and your nearly at Factory outlet pricing...but without a gold standard warranty from Axiom. Might be a good buy for a local pickup though.

I think it is. And it looks like he didn't make the highest bid afterall. Sorry about that mincone. I think you are better off sticking with Axiom's warranty and service anyway, just in case something happens to your speakers. Plus you get a 30 day trial to see if you like them.

I agree, not sure why anybody would pay 1500+ bucks for used, when you can get everything brand new with 5 yr. warranty for around $1870 (FO pricing - 10% - 5%).

Oh well...

Well... just playing devil's advocate, that $370 would pay for quite a few tweeters. Assuming the amp in the sub isn't fried, it is still a good deal.

Hi All,

Yes that was me on eBay and I was quite releved that I did not win the auction because of no warranty or return policy. However I placed an order at Axiom for the M60 500 7.1 it will arrive on Monday, I can't wait.

I have a new question for all,

The Yamaha RX V2600 receiver as far as I know has a 6 or 8 ohm speaker load I'm not sure if it has a 4 ohm load setting, does anybody know? And For three hundred more perhaps I should look at the M80 for mains?

Please tell me what you think.

John

First of all you want to leave the Yammy on the 8ohm setting, if there is a switch on the back for 6 ohm, don't change it. In regards to the M80's, there have been some in the past that have had issues with certain Yammy models going into protection mode after playing for sometime because they get to hot driving 4 ohm speakers.

Not sure about the 2600, you could call Yamaha. The Denon's and HK's have no problem driving m80's because of their overbuilt interior guts.

I can tell you there is nothing wrong with M60's man, they play plenty loud, and my room is almost 900 sq ft. The m60's and m80's have a very similar sound, the m80's just play to more insane volume levels. You may not need the m80's. How big is your room and what are your plans for the speakers, music or HT, and how loud?

Unless you have a huge room I doubt you'll need to get the M80ti's over the M60ti. Better to save that money for something else with your system such as a nice sub. I got the M60ti and they go extremely loud and clear.

I own the RX-V2500 btw.

Is your budget an issue? Will you have upgraditis?

The 80s sound very good at low volume as well. And you can crank them up when you're in another room.

You going to love the 500!

Hi All,

I'm going to stay with the M60, I think this the best setup for me for now and for thr future.

Thanks,

John
