Welcome to Axiom good people on this forum!!!The M80's are a great speaker IMO you'd have to up the ante quite bit in $$$$ outlay to do alot better!!!! I've used the M60's in the past just traded up to the 80's v.3 & am shocked at the better sound quality which is saying quite a alot given the 60's are no slouch!!! Just as important is that Axiom is a 1st rate company to deal with from service to integrity point of view which is very unusual these days IMHO!!!Axiom has always made buying anything from them a pleasure the only thing that would make it better is if was free
!!!LOL Hope you like your 80's!!! I'm planning to upgrade my AVR too....looking at getting a Anthem mrx-720..I'm using currently a Yamaha RXA-1000 just heard the Anthem today driving a pair of Paradigm monitor 9's & was impressed can't wait to hear what that AVR(Anthem 720) does with my 80's!!!!
