When I'm playing cds or listening to radio, I run pure direct on the Denon. The sub is off.

I agree with John on this one.

If you're using these for 100% music and you're not into pipe organ music or rap/hip-hop, go with the M60s and forget the sub. The M60 will cover your music range fine.

If you go with a bookshelf....virtually ANY bookshelf out there, I think you'll just end up wanting a sub. And that' more $$ and, as you said, another box in the room.

One more vote for the 60s.

About your question concerning the axiom return policy and fine print.

The collective experience of the Axiom owning members of this forum is that Axiom has outstanding service and honours all their policies as stated. No fine print to be found.

I agree that the return policy is real. The Axiom people are very helpful.

No worries about fine print. Axiom's customer service is stellar.

Thank you all for your responses. I must say this is a very open and helpful site.

Now, another question. I am familiar with the sound of Boston Acoustics because I have owned them for some time. How does the sound of the M60 compare to that of the VR3's or VR2's? If anyone has feedback on that, I'd certainly appreciate it.

My room is bigger than yours and I just have a pair of M3's in em (plus VP150, QS4's and a sub).

Surprisingly these lil M3's fill the room rather well. Yes, I still want a pair of floorstanding speakers (M60's) but thats mostly just something I've wanted for years but never could afford (still can't).

If ur on a budget I'd say the M3's would be fine. If you have a lil more money M22's and a sub would prolly give more impact, and obviously M60's would be the most ideal if you really have some money to spend on speakers. But fear not if you go the M3 route, they are truely amazing *bookshelf* speakers.

Ditto the M3 suggestion.

I ran three M3s across the front in a 12x28 room in the old house and they did a great job.

Have to agree with F107+5

M3s, a nice quick sub like a velodyne CHT10 or even an 8 for another octave, and enjoy the music!!!
