Hello all,

I just can't buy before I hear. Anyone in Calgary with some M22's I might be able to listen to? (or any Axiom's I could hear?)

I know that Jakewash has some M22s that I was supposed to go audition as well. I never have yet had time to go over there and take a gander. I will probably just order the speakers without doing an audition. I have crappy speakers with my mini sterio right now so anything will be an improvement!

I think he lives in the NW

You might want to check the audition thread at the top of this section, page 1 has a list of people that will audition. Also, you can send a PM to Amie at Axiom as sometimes she has more people than the list represents.

Weaker, you can always buy and return for refund (except for return shipping) as an option. I first bought the M22s and returned them for $24 with insurance through Canpost. It was worth the cash to spend shipping them back to hear them first.
I now own the M60s, among others.

Hutzal, if you change your mind and want to audition, the welcome mat is always out.

Jake,

Thanks again, who knows what will happen. I will feel ALOT better once the basement is DONE! let alone speakers ordered...once I even get carpet down there I will feel like a whole load has been taken off my shoulders!

I remember the feeling, my oldest son was born on the Thursday before the Saturday we were to have the carpet put in the basement. The labor was long, 36hrs, and I went to work the Friday night and then came home at 2AM Saturday morning and painted the basement. I finished a few hours before the carpet guys showed up. When it was all done I felt so relaxed, what a hectic week that was.

36 hours of labour to get the carpet installed? You got ripped off.

Yes we did, 36hrs just to get a 'C' section. My second son was a planned 'C' section and we were in and out of the operating room in less than an 2hrs.

On the other hand, the carpet guys were great, 13 stairs 2 landings and a 12X16' section in 3hrs. I was finally able to go to bed after a little over 36hrs awake for the second time that week.

This doesn't involve a seam ripper and carpet kicker, does it?

Just to get this thread back on track, I hosted auditions for a good portion of Saturday and I hope Weakerspeaker, Lorenzo and Adanac all had a good time, I enjoyed meeting all of you and I now have a face to go with the name.

Weakerspeaker I would definitely like to check out your HT when you get it done and post some pics here, it sounded very impressive.

Lorenzo was impressed with your hospitality and your Axioms.
Thanks again!
