Incredibly I was already stalking the Axiom forum looking for information back then, seems funny that so many years have passed so quickly
I think I stumbled upon a "Soundstage" review(or was it "Home theater or something" with the comparison test of the M3, and the marble Norh[sp] and a Swan Diva)of the M3s while looking for any on-line magazines with speaker reviews, which lead me to the Axiom web site.
...the JBL HLS series had been cancelled and I was lost....
The forum was cool back then too!
We even had a fella called "Ian"(I think)who would give lots of knowledgable and insightfull info on Axiom speakers on a daily basis!!
I think things were simpler then; not as much competition, and not as much stuff to sift thru.
Sometimes it's fun to go way back in forum time and see what used to go on.
