Well after coming to this site for over a year i finally pulled the trigger on a pair of M50s. Over the last few weeks i have demoed paradigm moniter 9s, energy rc-30s, psb image t5s,totems,kefs, and many other. Im excited to try the axioms out they should be here next monday. Im really hoping they sound like the paradigms and psbs. It doesnt seem like the M50s are a popular choice around here. Why is that?

Congrats, deathjester!

I dunno. Mostly because we talk most people into getting M60s or M80s. If they fit your budget and you like them, I wouldn't sweat it. Let us know what you think when you get them!

I ordered a pair of M50s, took delivery and never opened the boxes for a trade up to the M60s ... I often wish I would have kept the 50s, or at least listened to the darn things.

Congrats!

Congrats on your new Axioms. I bet they will sound great, I recall NeverHappy (remember him) liked the M50s over the M80s.

I bought a good friend the M40s before they were discontinued. The M50s were the same, but larger.
The sound was more laid back, somewhat less detailed than the M60s/22/80s (i attribute that to the 2 way vs 3 way design without a dedicated midrange driver), but good bass and still a clear sounding tweeter.
They fit in a great price range especially on the used market or from the Factory Outlet IMO.

No, no no ... you are thinking of NeverHappened, different guy altogether.

Isn't it the memory they always say is the first to go? \:o
