Initially, I purchased these to have a good starter surround system in my 12'x20' family room, but when I coupled them with the VP 100 and QS8's, I found it easy to balance the whole audio atmoshpere without upgrading these front speakers to the M50's I had planned on upgrading to... that would just be overkill without adding any quality sound atmosphere!!!
these speakers are well worth the praise they have received,along with a price that one would expect to be much higher based on performance. hats off to Axiom,don,t sleep on these speakers!
My new M2i loudspeakers just arrived, and I couldn't be happier. I feared that switching from Von Schweikert VR4's to smaller speakers was going to be a big disappointment. However, to my pleasant surprise, these little guys are extraordinarily musical and have far more low end that I anticipatedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦and they haven't even been broken in yet. Wow!
Finally, I have "highs" that are crisp and clear without any annoying harshness.
Great product! Nothing close to it at twice the price. Thanks for processing the order and getting it out so quickly.
Our speakers sound great!! Teamed with our subwoofer-sound is awesome!!! We will definintely buy again from Axiom!!
I received the M2i speakers today. My little system--Cambridge a300 amp-8inch Ar sub-M2i! I listened to Carmina Burana (Telarc) and it sounded wonderful. The old speakers Boston Acoustics HD10. The HD10s much too laid back. I am very pleased, thank you.
Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the M2i speakers. I've had many stereos in the past 30 years, but none of them can compare to this one, thanks to the M2i. The sound is so clean, with such a wide sound stage, it is just unbelieveable!! A friend of mine who is a dj was over and he said he has never heard sound this clean. I have to listen to my music collection all over again, because Iam hearing things I've never heard before !! CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH!!!!
I'm really happy I tried my luck with you! Yesterday I finally tested M2i's with a good sub. I found myself listening my mouth open. Whatta sound!! Clear, neutral, airy and _soft_ YEEEES! I was smiling the whole day. I _definitely_decided_to_keep_the_m2i's._ Thanks! Once again. All the best for You and the whole company! Wish you a LOT of success in business. I try to do my part here in Finland. I really want to share the joy of dealing with you! I know I should support the Finnish loudspeaker industry which is not bad at all either (just to mention Amphion, Chorus, Crevasse(GREAT but too expensive and big), Genelec, Gradient & Penaudio for example). But still I chose you. Liked your speakers more and have to say I had quite a demands for them! And saved a lot by doing that! In the end a list of speakers m2i's compeed with (and beated, though not in realtime comparison side by side but in the long run): Finnish ones: Amphion Argon IIs Chorus 662 (excellent little speaker considering it's size, but nothing in comparison to Argon IIs and I didn't choose them but m2i Genelec 8030, 8040 (highly praised new studio monitors-didn't find them but dull and 2-dimensional though neutral, nothing to be excited with) Gradient Prelude(=600euros) and Lauri (1500euro high-end-Prelude made to Japan with different type marking (Lauri only in Finland) Penaudio Rebel II (thin, airy, sharp without sub (like m2i's) costs 1500euros) and international companies products: B&W 705 (The last rival of m2i's, a good compromise for all music but something extra in piano's middle octaves) 1200euros Duntech PCL-10/2 (strange, exciting, coloured) Dynaudio 42,52SE, S1.4 (ADORED the treble, unbeatable beauty but somehow the orchestral records made them beg for mercy) Mackie 662 (never get a pair to really test but sounded good in bad acoustics of the shop) MonitorAudio S1 (metallic, sharp, look TotemAcoustics) ProAc Responce 1sc (quite ok, not neutral but great with choir-music) TotemAcoustics Model-1, Dreamcatcher (too sharp, airy, didn't like titanium tweeters until yesterday afternoon in my living room ;) Quad 21L (great quality and price, little boomy, had a dynaudio 52se at the same time, treble shaded compared to that) Quite a list I'd say. Million thanks and bows to designer of m2i's! And for you for the extraordinarily good service! Yours,
The new M2i is now the rear center channel of my home theater. Sounds great, just like I knew it would! :-) Thank you for your great products and your quick and friendly service.A very satisfied customer,
We did receive our Axiom speakers and we are in LOVE with them! It is hard to believe such a fantastic, beatifully balanced wall of sound is coming from those two small speakers! If you close your eyes it is very easy to imagine that the vocalist and musicians are in the room with you. We are rediscovering our CD collection, anxious to see how each one sounds with the new speakers....fantastic! I will definately be recommending these to anyone and everyone. Thanks for such a great product!!
thank you for the note. i am excited to hook them up and listen to what i've purchased. so far, axiom has impressed me. now for the true test.
Thank you very much. I look forward to hearing the M2i giving the great reviews received from prestigious magazines. Best regards,
Just want to say thanks for an awesome product! I got my M2i today and I am greatly impressed. No matter what genre I listen to, there is no coloration! Highs are clear and detailed and the midrange is powerful and clean. I am only 16 and so my budget is very limited, therefore I was extremely skeptical about buying loudspeakers without hearing them over the internet. My fears melted away when I set up my M2is and put on a copy of The Patriot. The Axioms blew away my old Kenwoods that were twice the size and the outstanding maple cabinet and aluminum woofers look great next to my TV. I can turn them up as loud as I want and there is hardly any distortion. I will be coming back for my center, rears, and possibly the sub. I had them broken in two hours after fedex dropped them off and I was at the door waiting for them. I can't believe the sound I got for 250 bucks! Thanks!
Best speaker on the market today for all around performance. Adds great sound for all your audio needs movies or music. #1 in my books.
I purchased a pair of the Axiom Audio M2TI's and one of the VP50 center channel speakers and was immediately impressed. These under $300.00 (USD) speakers blow away the competition in the $300.00 to $500.00 price range. They have a realistic quality to them that others in this price category cannot compete with. My CD collection runs the entire spectrum of music, from classical to rock & roll. While all sound great with the Axiom's, they really shine with jazz vocals. Legendary performers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong and Shirley Horn appear to be live in my listening room with the Axioms. I am so impressed with these speakers that I have decided to dump my B&W DM601's in favor of a pair of the M22TI's or the M40TI's. I have presently positioned the $430.00+ B&W's as my rear channel speakers. Incredibly they have been replaced as mains by my $240.00 dollar Axioms! While these speakers excel with music, they are also outstanding with home theatre. Over the past few years I have listened to less and less music, and only watched movies about once per week. I now find myself wanting to watch movies or listen to music every night because of the great sound I'm hearing from the M2's and the VP50. The scary thing is, these speakers aren't even broken in yet! I anticpate even better sound once they are completely broken in. I would recommend these speakers to anyone who wants a great loudspeaker at a great price. Axioms are not for people who like to waste gobs of money on their equipment, nor are they for people who choose name recognition over performance. Axiom Audio loudspeakers are for people who simply want to enjoy music and movies. Do yourself a favor and check them out.
I must say, Amie, your company is a real pleasure to deal with. Also, what I first heard when I tried my speakers was the distinct lack of the artificial brightness and brittle quality I noticed in some Athenas I recently tried. My ears got really fatigued fast with those. I prefer the signal as unaffected as possible. The Axioms really are gorgeous looking, as well. All the best,
Excellent look and great sound.
