Holy crap, going through my older CDs and put in Sass Jordan "Rats". Very well recorded. I had forgotten how much of a rocker she is. Definitely an album to play loud (and before 10pm). High Road Easy actually made me sweat just sitting there. Now I remember why I always associated her with the RCMP:
"Why, no, officer, I wasn't aware that my car could go that fast."

Porcupine Tree "Fear of a Blank Planet" DVD-Audio. Has four bonus tracks not included on the original. Fantastic recording


I've been looking around for the DVD-A and the only place I've seen it is direct from PT. Where did you get yours?

Dear All,

How does M60 fair in playing classic Rock like Journey, Chicago, Toto a REO Speedwagon, Rap, R&B, Classical?

I'm living in Singapore and plan to purchase the M60 for my new home. Is there any particular kind of music that the M60 won't perform well with?

Please advise. It won't be cheap for me to ship back those speakers if i find them not to my liking.

Thanks.

The only thing Axioms don't play well are poorly recorded CDs. I briefly had the M60s and for a number of my older classic rock cds they excelled at playing them, while my M22/M80s would show just how poorly recorded they were, due to the slightly more forward nature of these speakers.

By all means get the M60s you will not be disappointed.

I could have sworn that there is another on this forum from Singapore.

M60s ROCK with Rock and they show class with classical. They work well with everything. The last paragraph, very briefly, explains why.

To back up my personal opinion, I have two sets. One for my home theater mains and one set strictly for stereo music. I listen to all kinds of music. This includes rock in all it's many forms and generations. I'm getting back into classical (I always enjoyed a live symphony or other forms but never liked listening to it at home until I got my M60s.) I play lots of blues. I'm not much into basic rap but I do own some of the more intersting variations. I enjoyed the gansta rap scene because it strayed more from the basic, overly repetitive, rhythm and rhyme scene.

In short, a lot of music styles get played on my M60s and I constantly get compliments from my amazed friends.

Caveat: Don't let it scare you because it's really a tribute to just how great they are but, as Jason said, if it's a poorly recorded disk, it will definitely sound poor. They are not forgiving at all of brain dead producers or overly compressed MP3s, but that is just the speaker accurately producing what has been badly recorded or over compressed.

That's my subjective opinion but if you want a more slightly scientific one, look at the graphs provided on the web page. The frequency response is amazingly flat from the top range, to as far as one could expect in the bottom range (without it being turned into a subwoofer,) so it is not weak at all in any particular area. It's equally strong in bass, midrange and highs so regardless of the music style.... well to sum it up.... it just works!

Edit Reason: to refer to jason who always seems to post something similar but shorter while I'm busy being long winded.

My wife was playing some Enya last night so when it was my turn I felt the need to retaliate with extreme prejudice. The new Seether has some really great songs for the more matured headbanger in you. The gutteral ending to the 1st track had her grimacing but the beat of the second track had her bopping around the kitchen. The rest were all great too.

I love that my music of youth is one of the few genres that lives on with today's youth. I don't have to feel like a prude when I go to the sales counter. Well, not as often, anyways.

I like all the classic rock you mention and they sound great on my previous 60's and current 80's. Keep in mind that if you have poorly recorded CD's Axiom speakers will reveal these flaws. That is not an Axiom problem, but a recording problem. Axiom speakers are true to the recording source, so garbage in is gargage out.

Yeah, that's the only place I've seen it (linked from PT site). What did it wind up costing in C$?

Sorry, I found my missing post, this would have been a duplicate.
Perhaps my wife is on to something.
