Been lurking around this forum for about a year now. It's what convinced me to buy the M22's for my in-laws as a house warming present. Then shortly after that I purchased a set of QS8's for my surrounds. In short - both pairs of speakers are great.

So now I'm about the pull the trigger on completing my system so everything is Axiom. Just sold my mains on CAM and a buddy of mine wants the QS8's so I have an opportunity to switch to the high gloss cherry vinyl. Has anybody seen both as I've only seen the boston cherry.

Now I've had the chance to listen to the M60's and really liked what I heard so I'm leaning that way and that would keep me in budget even with the high gloss and then new QS8's, a VP150 and an EP350 to finish it off.

I'd like opinions. (which I know there is no shortage of on this forum) \:D

Hi, Sloped. I believe "HAY" has some high gloss cherry vinyl and he has posted some pictures on the forums somewhere. They are beautiful, BTW. Maybe send him a PM if you can't find the pictures on the forum search, there should be some sample pictures in the "store" somewhere, too.

My vote goes to HG cherry. Its what I would have picked up if it was in my budget. The HG vinyl is impossible to tell from the real thing unless you are within a foot of the two. I did the comparison at the factory.

I have my setup in HGC, but I can't help you with pics for the 60's though, unfortunately. I find they photgoraph a little bit orange. These aren't too bad, but some pictures online look quite orange.

I hate when people post high gloss cherry pictures. Takes me forever to get the drool stains off my desk.

I believe if you go to the gallery section and head back into the previous postings you will see a number of HG cherry pics

Thanks Adrian

I've PM'd HAY to see if I can arrange an audition. He lives really close and has the M60's in that finish. Pictures are great, but live is best. I also hope this can solidify my decision on the M60's instead of M80's. I've heard the M60's once, but the room it was in seemed to kill some of the low's. From what I've read in these forums there should have been more so I'm going with that. If it doesn't satisfy, I'll send them back for the M80's or buy another EP350 which I plan on doing eventually.

Thanks for the pictures Potatohead. They look gorgeous. I'd seen a couple in the gallery. Have you seen the Boston Cherry? Would you say they are the same with a gloss finish or from what I interpret in the pictures, do they have a little less red colour and more of a light chestnut finish?

Actually, a good friend who turned me on to Axiom in the first place has the Boston Cherry. It's definately got more red in it than the HGC. These are slightly lighter, with a bit more grain. To be perfectly honest the only reason I didn't get BC was because he had it already, and there aren't any other medium - dark standard finishes.
