I don't know, I thought the review was very kind especially considering the measurement. I prefer critical reviews that teach me something about the product I can't learn on the manufacturers website.
If you believe that review of the M60 for the reasons you state, then i have some ice cubes to sell you...
The words chosen for his review give away his obvious bias of expectation before he listened to the speakers.
And yes, his room DOES make a huge difference in those measurements. Listing his specific methods would be of great use, but somehow i doubt they used an anechoic chamber to remove the room effect from this equation.
Without normalizing the data for room effects, his entire review becomes specific to that one room.
Many graphs have been put up on the forums over the years demonstrating someone's Axiom speakers in their listening space and every one has been unique.
