I'm extremely impressed with the M60s. I loved my M3s, but the M60s just completely outclass them in every way - detail, balance, soundstage & imaging - and the ease with which they handle everything that comes their way. Not just \"for the price\" - these are amazing speakers, period.
I've always been a firm believer in the bookshelf/subwoofer system for audio. In any tower speaker I'd ever heard, the upper-bass was always loose, and muddled. For that reason, I'd always bought and owned high quality bookshelf speakers, and mated them with a good subwoofer. (And that's still a terrific way to go) Then I heard the M60ti's. Holy cow. Clarity throughout the audio range. Bass is very tight and clean. Midrange is clear - voices sound like they're right there in the room with you. And the highs? You'll hear things you've never heard before. You can hear the guitar pick in accoustic guitar. You'll hear Norah Jones' delicate inhale before singing. It's all there. I love listing to speakers. I go out listening all the time, and I've yet to hear something that has made me want to trade my M60ti's in. They are very similar in sound/tone/detail as the MUCH more expensive B&W 703's. If you've heard those, and just couldn't afford their $2500+ price tag, give the Axiom M60ti's a try.
The best and most inexpensive way to get reference quality sound. The M60s continue to blow me away months after I bought them. My audiophile friend from London ON has put them on his must own list.
Can't say enough about how good looking and great sounding these speakers are. Punchy, right bass. Crystal clear mid and highs. Couple these with a pair of QS8s, a VP100 and the sub of your choice, and you've got a sound system that beats most professional movie theater's sound.
Hi, - just wanted to let everybody know how happe I am with my new speakers, - not to mention how fast they arrived, - ordered wednesday, got it friday, - I live in Denmark! I have a large collection of cd's and old lp's, - and everything sounds fantastic, - jazz, classical, symphony, piano, song etc. I also have the speakers connected to my television and the stereo image are much better than my old Sony 5.1 system, - I mean I actually saw \"snakes on a plane\" because of the thunder storms! My wife and I are both trained concert pianists, - so you should think we are used to using our ears, - these are the best speakers I have ever had, - thanks. It's really true, - you want to listen to all your old records/cd's again just to see how well these speakers make them sound.
Exceptional service, Exceptional speakers. I purchased the M60 along with the vp150 center channel. I was not prepared for the outstanding clarity and dynamics that these speakers exhibit. I have been auditioning speakers from paradigm, monitor audio, klipsch, B&W. for the money none can compare to the M60 in this price range. you will have to spend considerably more money to exceed their capabilities in an average sized room, unless you opt for the M80. A few of my friends are already begging their wives to allow them to purchase a new set of axioms speakers for their home theaters. I took a chance on axiom audios 30 day in home trial, and I will not be sending these speakers back. Exceeded my expectations in every respect, well done axiom. upgraded my speaker cable from a 14 AWG monter xp to Bluejean 10AWG Belden Cable, made a huge difference in low end extension and soundstaging. the better the components connected to these speakers, will reward the listener with wiith noticeable improvements in depth and details you have never heard before in your music collection.
The M60 is an excellent speaker at an awesome price. My first set was in Boston Cherry and I enjoyed them so much when I was looking for an upgrade all I could do was order a new set in the High Gloss Cherry finish! To me these are THE speaker... and the best looking in the Axiom line up :) Order up a pair and enjoy the music.
I just got my M60 speakers and WOW what awesome sounding speakers. I just played my Roger Waters in the Flesh DVD and these speakers are a lot better sounding then my present Tannoy speakers. I'm very impressed.
After several weeks of researching online in an attempt to find the perfect speakers for my very own home theater, I decided to purchase a pair of these speakers from Axiom's factory outlet for $892 and I am glad I did. These speakers have exceeded my expectations and continue to do so the more I listen to them.
Fantastic sound! Before these were delivered I remember thinking "how much better than my Tannoys could these possibly sound?" Now I know! Just delighted. Was so busy at home that the first three days I could not even unpack them! The fourth night I came home after work and just had to connect even though it was late.Ã‚Â After hooking up I had to listen at a really really low volume asÃ‚Â my wife and kidsÃ‚Â had gone to sleep. I was astounded for even at the low low volumes - I could tell that I really had somethinmg special here. Thank you!
Je viens de recevoir mes M60. Quel son incroyable! J'ai l'impression que l'orchestre est chez moi! Je m'installe une salle d'ÃƒÂ©coute et je pourrais les apprÃƒÂ©cier ÃƒÂ leur valeur complÃƒÂ¨te. Je vous donnerais d'autres nouvelles.FÃƒÂ©licitations ÃƒÂ vous et votre ÃƒÂ©quipe pour la fabrication d'aussi bonnes enceintes.
I have had these speakers for several months now and I listened to many many speakers in and above their price range. NOTHING even came close. The only speakers that sounded better but cost considerably more were the martin logans, and not even their base model. I will put theseÃ‚Â up against nearly anything. I wish they went a little lower in deep base dept butÃ‚Â within their range they are strong iand very accurate - what a lesson B & W could learn fromÃ‚Â you!Ã‚Â someday your sub will back them up anyway. Thank you for re-awakening the audiophile in me.
Until you buy axiom you haven't listened to real music or heard the awesome sound effects of a good movie. The sound is unmatched crisp, clear and just all around incredible. Go big or go home get axiom.
Keeping in mind that it is only the 2 front speakers I have hooked up, I put on David Arkenstone's Atlantis album, specifically the last track, Spirit of Atlantis. JC, oh my God.........I literally began to cry; I mean it! I have never heard sound that incredibly crystal clear, powerful, balanced, overwhelming. I was carried away to another place by the beauty spilling out of these awesome speakers. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I need to grab the Kleenex and get back to my music!Ã‚Â Axiom ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh so grateful,
Thank you for your advice on the M60's.Ã‚Â I received a pair yesterday, and after auditioning them with 'Peppino D'Agostino's'Ã‚Â high resolution 5.1 DVD, it was instantly apparent that this was an excellent upgrade from a pair of AX 1.5's. Not only do these speakers look outstanding, but the depth and detailed soundÃ‚Â that emanatesÃ‚Â from them, is nothing short of spectacular.Ã‚Â I had no idea that my Home Theatre System could sound so good. The rest of the set up consist of AX 1.5's,Ã‚Â AX2'sÃ‚Â and AX 1.2's.Ã‚Â It was very interesting to hear these older model Axiom'sÃ‚Â become more alive with the introduction to their new big brothersÃ‚Â -Ã‚Â Quite Amazing . I am so pleased with this purchase that I will be ordering the M60's matching center channel - the VP150.Ã‚Â . . . .In Closing -Ã‚Â Axiom AudioÃ‚Â can keep my money - 'cause ya ain't getting these backTotally Pleased,
I absolutely love theM60s.Ã‚Â Norah Jones was almost a religious experience.
Wow! Brent, these M60s are fan-TAS-tic! I thought I had pretty good floor speakers before, but I'm hearing things I've never heard before! It's a true joy to experience my music collection in a way I've never known. The product, like the service, is top-notch.
Received, installed, wired, tried it out. Very good. I'm pleased!
They are much better than the infinities they replaced. I can't wait to get the rear speakers next!
Thanx, super sound...all the rave reviews and positive promos were correct! Fedex great as usual. I just have one minor complaint.......why did I not find out about these loudspeakers earlier!
The speakers look good and sound great! It's been hard to decide what music to play next. I will certainly recommend your speakers to anyone in the market.
I'm very very happy with my Axiom M60Ti. It delivers sound so wonderful that I wish to have more time everyday with it. Thank you Axiom.
I was initially hesitant about purchasing loudspeakers without hearing them first, but the combination of Axiom's top-notch service, along with their informative website closed the deal. I'll definitely buy Axiom again, and I've been telling my friends about my great experience.
The new speakers are awesome!!! I was replacing 25 year old speakers, so I expected an improvement...but the Axiom's surpassed my expectations. We sat up last night playing Copeland, Green Day, Ted Nugent, Allison Krause, Yo-Yo Ma, Eric Clapton and countless others. Great speakers, a great price, simple to order, they arrived when they were supposed to, the set-up instructions were very clear...it couldn't have been easier.Thanks,
I am the satisfied owner of five Axiom speakers and awaiting delivery of two more. I bought a pair of M60s and M3s in Feb. 03 to replace my 14 year old 12 inch 3 way towers and 8 inch 2 way surrounds. I chose Axiom after week of research on the web and in person auditions. I had some doubts as to the bass of the M60s due to the 6 1/2 inch drivers. Chose the M3s as replacements for the surrounds because I was used to the "bookshelf" style speakers and was unfamiliar with the "surround" style speakers. When I received the speakers it was a matter of minutes when I put the issue of the bass abilities of the M60s to rest. The tight and clean low end of the M60s was every bit as good as the old 12 inchers. Time and technology works wonders because I never thought I would settle for less than a 12 inch woofer. As for the M3s, I was curious about this unit as the reviews were all almost too good so I hooked the M3s up as a stereo pair and listened to them for a couple of days. I was really impressed at the sound of these speakers. They were somewhat smaller than my old 8 inch bookshelfs that had acted as my surrounds but sounded much better. In a word they were CLEANER. I decided to move the M3s to the bedroom and I created a sound system with the M3s and an old receiver a dual cassette deck and a cd changer. This is Not a state-of-the-art rig but it really sounds great in the small room and it sings me to sleep most nights. Next I bought a pair of QS8s to fill in the living room as true "surrounds". I was very pleased at the effects of the QS8s. They spread the sound around the listening area like butter on warm toast. The surround style speakers are much better than the bookshelf type at creating an enveloping and realistic sound field. One thing, the QS8s are quiet powerful and can shift the emphasis to the rear of the room if you let the rear levels get too high. I probably would have been completly satisified with the QS4s but I'll be keeping my QS8s. Next was the VP150 center and as with the other Axioms it is doing a great job. I dont always have the center channel on when I am watching TV or listening to CDs but it really shines on DVD dialog. All of these speakers will play louder than I can tolerate and do so cleanly. As so many others have added I too am rediscovering my music collection. Boy does it sound great. I am buying a new receiver 7.1 for the living room and am waiting on my M2s for rears. I highly recommend Axiom speakers for any music style or room size. They look and sound great.
Yes, I did received my M60Ti speakers. It was delivered when promised, very good customer service. The speakers sound wonderful. I love them. In the future I will order a sub woofer :) Thank you for your good service and product. Regards,
To let you know that I am very satisfied and very impressed with how the speakers sounded. I've known Axiom since 1987 but never really bothered with it but now I've discovered how excellent sound and valuable they are. Thanks to all the reviews at audioreview.com that finally convinced me into buying the speakers. I was so close to buying a pair of Paradigm Studio 60's and a matching center for it but the $1000 extra compare to the M60 and VP150 changed my mind and am I glad I did. Thanks Axiom! I look forward to buying other Axiom speakers in the future.
I just wanted drop you a line to let you know that, my expectations were met in regards to my new M60 Towers! I am glad I went with my instincts and not the hype surrounding other speaker companies. I used to have a pair of Bose 901 speakers, and I must say I am way more impressed with the M60's. Thank you for putting out a fantastic product. I can't wait to get my center and surrounds.
I have received the speakers and I'm awaiting my new receiver, but in the meantime I hooked the speakers up to my old (small and antiquated) system. The speakers sound great. I can't wait to hear them hooked up to a real system. Thank you for your great customer service!
I set up the speakers last night, and played with them a little bit. I still need to re-do my equalization settings but I have to do some re-wiring before that will be done. I will let you know that in the short time I had to listen to them last night, I am already in love. They sound much more full in my living room than the M22ti's. I moved from a smaller apartment to a much more open condo so that was to be expected. Again, thank you. Axiom is one of the best. Thanks Again,
I was shocked at how fast they arrived (I expected a 4 to 6 week window). When I received the email indicating that they had shipped , I thought: Christmas comes early!!!! These speakers are truly outstanding!!!!!!!I didn't even have any problems with placement etc. Just removed the old speakers and inserted the new Axioms in their place. Hooked them up and......WOW! These really do compare to the B&W 703's (at a 1/4 of the price). I'll post a review on the message board in a week or two. Thank you again for the expedited delivery. Maybe I shouldn't mention on the board how quickly I received these? I wouldn't want to get future customers hopes too high! Next on the 'futures' list is a VP100 and QS8'sCheers,
Thanks for the follow up.I finally got my speaker placement finalized yesterday.They sound good from anywhere in the room.These are the first speakers I've owned that sound best with my tone controls on flat; regardless of the input material.Obviously an indication of sound engineering.No more suspending myself upside down from the ceiling to get in the sweet spot. Nice product and nice that it is made in Canada by a Canadian owned company. Regards,
Great service and excellant product. What a great pair of speakers!!
Just hooked up these M60's.............Holy S***! Gotta get back.
What a PLEASURE it has been to deal with you and your company!!! Great advice to start, friendly responsesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦what could be better? Thanks so much for everything. I love the new speakers.
Amie, Joe, Ian. I'd like to thank you all very much for allowing Mark and I to visit your facility. We thoroughly enjoyed the factory tour, learning about your operations, and of course, listening to your speakers. I helped Mark set everything up when we got back to Sudbury, and the Axiom's have been playing sweet music ever since. You have a fine product at an incredible price... and customer service that is second to none in my opinion. Please keep up the good work!!! Now that I've had the opportunity to hear your speakers, I can comfortably recommend them to family and friends... you have now officially taken over from Paradigm as my recommendation for best performance vs. $ spent! Thanks again, Best Regards,
You folks are GOOD! I placed my web order yesterday at 11 a.m. The order arrived this morning at exactly 11 a.m. - I was blown away. Plus the Purolator guy was a big hi-fi buff and seemed thrilled to be delivering a serious speaker system. I had been comparing the M60s to what I was familiar with in my old speakers. After a little time away, I was listening to the Axioms without bias. They are the most balanced, cleanest, least coloured speakers I have heard in a home listening environment. Needless to say they are equally spectacular with home theater soundtracks. The Axiom center channel speaker is a perfect timbre match. Many reviewers talk about how great Axiom speakers are "especially for the price". These are great speakers - PERIOD. Thanks for helping make me an "Axiom Man"! I'll spread the word. Have a great holiday! I know I will. Sincerely,
The speakers arrived in good condition. There was some box damage with one box having tire marks on the side like a vehicle brushed it, but it did not penetrate the second layer. The handles in the box were very helpful. Attention to detail even in the packing! The speakers sound terrific! It didn't take me long at all to position them correctly, and now I have that "wall of sound" that I hear people describing on the forum. I also see what people mean about vocals "coming to life". Needless to say, I'm very happy with them and I expect to be purchasing a center and four surrounds in the near future. Thank you again,
Beautiful speakers. We spent a couple of hours listening to them last night. We're still waiting for delivery of our HDTV so we can try them out with movies. I have really appreciated the promptness and professionalism of your company. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others, but when my friends see and hear these speakers I'm sure they will sell themselves.
I am very pleased with my pair of m60's, how they were packed/shipped and how fast they arrived, excellant work. I can not say enough about how much of a pleasure it is to deal with a company that takes pride in the work that they do. I look forward to future speaker purchases from axiom and you have a loyal customer for life. You guys at axiom really run a professional business, and take care of your customers. Thanks again.Sincerely,
I received my speakers and totally LOVE em!!! Had some friends come over the same day and they were VERY impressed. I now have another friend looking into a pair of M60's or M80's in the near future. These speakers are such an excellent value. Cheers.
Everything is fine so far. I just got them hooked up last night and they sound GREAT!
The speakers arrived on time and intact. They sound very nice. I want to thank all of you at Axiom for a very easy and helpful shopping experience that led to a most fulfilling stereo experience. Please thank John (I'm not sure how he spelled it) for helping size the subwoofer. It seems perfect for the room. Without his input, I surely would have purchased the wrong size. My friend, Reagan steered me right when he told me to consider Axiom. Sincerely,
That was one the fastest service I've ever had. I have opened the boxes and arranged the speakers but haven't had a chance to connect them yet. I can imagine that they will sound as good as they look (even my wife love the color).
The speakers look and sound great! They are a perfect match for our oak entertainment center. I'm extremely happy with them, including how quickly they arrived. I was taking something of a gamble, not having heard any Axiom speakers before and going strictly on reviews. The reviews were right! Thanks for the excellent merchandise,
Just want to drop you a quick note of Thanks! Your Company has exceeded all of my expectations! The speakers & stands arrived on Friday. The attention to detail (screwdrivers provided, etc), build, clarity and stereo imaging is absolutely astounding! (matched with my HK 7200). I never realized that Beethoven's 9th had all those wonderful instruments
Thanks for the message. I'm thrilled with both the speakers and the service. I can't believe they shipped on Christmas Eve and got here on Monday - outstanding. As for the speakers; not much more to say than WOW. Didn't know what I was missing with my little bookshelf stereo speakers. Thanks for the very attentive customer service.
I received my Axiom M60ti speakers yesterday and immediately set them up....I've listened to them for 4hrs non stop and all I can say is..they are fabulous!!!! the speaker itself is gorgeous and the sound is just PHENOMENAL...Thank you for putting out such an outstanding product!!!! I confess now that I had my reservations evnthoug I read lots of reviews on the net, compounds that with the fact that axiom is not well known or a brand people recognize...Let me assure you that I will "plug" axiom anytime I get the chance.....Is there any "thing" i should do or you recommend to keep my axioms looking great, as far as maintenance I mean? I am now contemplating the addition of a couple of M3s in the near future....Thank you again for an outstanding product..Shipping was unbelievably fast, I placed the order on 12/16 and on 12/20 I had the axioms up and running......You have made a customer for life.
Thanks for your message. My M60Ti speakers were delivered promptly, and they look and sound absolutely amazing! I appreciate the ease of the entire transaction with Axiom Audio. Cheers,
I received the speakers on Jan. 7th in very excellent condition...no dent, no blemishes whatsoever. I was very excited when I got it and hooked up right away to my Denon AVR-3805 and the sound was so amazing. I was almost blown away by the sound. No need to break in, the M60Ti did its job right from the box. You did a very good job designing these speakers, they're magnificent... Congratulations to all of you in Axiom. The reviews were right, no need for audition. I'll be back to you when I need to upgrade my surround speakers.
You can fool some people some of the time, but you can't fool all the people all of the time. Bob Marley. I am refering to some of your competitors. As for your speakers, Bob's next verse is, "And now I see the light..." I am impressed with your M60s. Thank you,
I just wanted to tell you guys these speakers rock! I pulled out my Steely Dan (Aja) Wow...you can hear all the instruments--it's incredible.Ã‚Â Thanks again,
I just wanted to let you know what a great experience it has been doing business with Axiom Audio. The customer service is exceptional and the products are true value. I love the open and detailed sound of the M60s. The QS8s are fantastic surrounds, I'm looking forward to hearing how they perform on SACD / DVD Audio. I will definitely be recommending Axiom to my friends.
As for the mighty M60s themselves, I'm thrilled with their performance thus far! They've replaced a pair of PSB Image 4Ts, which I still highly enjoy, however the M60s are surely a more competant pair of speakers for music, and I belive music is a taller order for a speaker than home-theatre use. I no longer use my EP-175 for music, as I always have with the PSB 4Ts. The M60s have plenty of authoritative bass on their own, mids are clear and present, and the highs are sweet without ever becoming fatiguing, sizzly, or generally obnoxious, as other tweeters of lower-priced speakers can be. I'm fully satisfied with my M60s, and don't expect to buy any more speakers for some time, but when the need arises, you can bet Axiom will the first brand I look to. Thanks again for your great products, ridiculous prices, and fabulous customer-service. Cheers!
Thank you for following up on my order. I received them last week and am very pleased with my purchase. The sound and build quality are unmatched in this price range and really dont know how you guys do it. These speakers will be with me for a long time. If I decide on additional surrounds or presence speakers in the future you can bet I will be back! Thanks.
I've been nothing short of astounded with all the axiom speakers I own (M3, M40, QS8, VP100).
They play ALL types of music very well...and I couldn't be happier with the customer service!
I got the speakers Thurs. afternoon. I played a album I know real well by Diana Krall. The first cut was Lets face the music and dance. The speakers instantly disappeared. It was like Diana Krall was right in the room. Sunday afternoon a friend of mine brought over The day after tomorrow. With addition of the the M60S The sound was nothing short of amazing. The LFE could knock the china out of the closet. I know with time they will only improve. I'm really happy with these speakers already. I definitely made the right choice with Axiom.
Amie, I received them 20 hours after you have shipped them.......it's a shipping record! First impression.....they are wonderfulllllll! I am so glad to have been to audioreview.com prior to make my choice. As you probably know your speakers receive such a great review on that website. You deserve it without any dought! Two days before, I have been to a well known audio store in Montreal where they let me listened to Paradigm, BW and others (about the same configuration as the 60).....just for fun to compare....even if I knew already that I would tried yours..... Even If I didn't have had lots of time yet to fully appreciate your speakers, I can tell you that I feel that your speakers are as quality good as the others sold at that store. Sound, presence, etc....they are superb. For 1100$ canadien it's a steel!......compared to the 1500$ to 2000$ of the Paradigm and BW, etc. Axiom is the way to go! Thanks again for your very good service and advices,
I've set up my 60s and started playing our collection of CDs and DVDs with them and the VP100. We've a pair of QS4s that I bought a couple of years ago, and everything blends together nicely. So far, all the reactions have been positive! Thanks for following up, and best regards,
Thank you for providing me with great service and a product that exceeded my expectations. My wife is as excited as I am about the aesthetics and tonal quality of the speakers. They really bring my cd's to life. We both agree that it seems like we are at a concert while listening to these speakers. My only wish is that they have longevity; otherwise I have no complaints. I will definitely choose your speakers when I upgrade to surround sound.
Thought I would drop you a line and let you know how impressed I am with these speakers. They're about 3 months old now and they're sounding better every day and they sound better the louder I play them! I got them up front with your M3ti on the B channel it's the best combination I've ever had and I've been through a lot of speakers. Last night my buddy was over and we put on Van Halen First CD and opened a beer. We thought Eddie was playing in my front room the midrange on those speakers is so good. He thought I had a sub he couldn't believe it when I popped the grill off and showed him those two little 6.5 inch drivers. Those are great drivers! Needless to say he just payed twice as much for his speakers and was ready to throw them away after hearing mine. Thanks.
Seriously good speakers. Worth every penny.
The mid range sounds are beautifully and smoothly rendered. The low end sound remains clean with superb tight bass.
Thanks Amie! I love the axioms!
