I was the lucky winner of the very first Axiom auction, a pair of high gloss cherry M50's. I check in to the forum from time to time but rarely see any comments regarding these speakers. In our home they do all the heavy lifting, no center, no sub, no surrounds. No space, No Problem! TV, cd's, DVD, streaming all sound terrific, our friends always remark about the quality/clarity of the sound. Anyone looking for a straightforward quality sound solution should seriously consider Axiom M50's. Put the money you save in the college or vacation fund. I'll follow up again in 2016 with rest of the M50 club.
