I'm posting this here because the review was just for a pair of M60's, not a complete 5.1 setup. They did earn a '2010 Sound & Vision Certified & Recommended' status even though the overall score was only a 6.3 Here's the breakdown:

Design - 4
Performance - 8
Value - 7

I don't get the 4 on design. Other box type speakers they've reviewed in the past have gotten better that a 4. But the written part of the review was quite positive. The bottom line reads like this:, (and I quote)
"The Axiom Audio M60 V3 gave me the reliable engineering experience I expect from the Canadian school. It also gave me something I didn't anticipate: that extra dose of audio excitement I often hear in more exotic designs. This is one pair I can recommend for anyone, from the home theater aficionado seeking studio-quality perfection to the audiophile seeking something a little more than mere technical competence. SV"

I like that quote. I think Axiom's aged box design is the cause of many poor comments, might be time for a new outer shell.

the axiom speakers look just fine to me, much like almost any other speaker in it's class but what's more important to me is the sound quality and the price for said sound quality. that's where i want my money to go, not into some crazy looking cabinet design! for me, with the 5 speakers i bought from Axiom, i got just what I wanted! of course that's me!

Never knew they tried to change the shape of the enclosure for the v3's.

What did they try and change? I don't recall a substantial change being put forth.

Loc: It's all about the location.
"Design" can mean a lot of different things. If they are talking about the shape of the cabinets, then one would hope that it's all relative....in other words, any boring square shaped cabinet would get a "2" according to their scoring system.

Oh never mind. I was talking about changing the driver color, which was a long standing request. Fuggetaboutit.
