Well, it's that time again. Back in February.....I had my six year anniversary with my Axiom M60's.

I know most of you have read my mini-reviews over the years, where, I crow about how great they are, what a great deal they were when I bought them, (in custom vinyl oak) and, how they still look like new,(no issues at all) after all these years.....and how they sounded so much better than my old JBL'S, and how they still sound fantastic....the same as when new, and how easy they are to drive with ANY amp/avr, etc. how they love to play clean, and LOUD......and so on.

Well, it's all still true....

BUT! I have a confession to make.

I often play music, when I'm on the computer, thru my........ (gulp) Phillips computer speakers. There I said it.
I am not always able to have a critical listening session with the M60.s....BUT!
When I get a new cd, and want to hear what it REALLY sounds like.....I'm back to the trusty M60s.

The main one's I want to read this are any new customers....trying to decide if Axiom's are right for them. I wanted to point out, not just the great sound, and features, like most do, but also how well they are made, and how they last, thru the years....up there with the best!

Don't feel bad, it happens to the best of us. A lot of my music listening is on an old mono FM radio with a noisy volume control. It seems to get a better selection of music than the FM tuner on my system upstairs, even though I listen to the same stations.

Presumably time of day is a factor...

"Noisy volume control" I've been able to fix 100% of these so far just by turning them back and forth about 50 times or so, until they stop making scratchy noises.

I thought cats liked scratchy noises?


Half of communication is listening. You can't listen with your mouth.

Only when it's my carpeting and I'm not looking.

My computer is setup right next to my HT/Music equipment, so when I listen to stuff on the computer, it is always being pumped through my M80's.
