After drooling over Axiom speakers for a long time a pair of M40Ti's came up on CL for a great price so I jumped on them. I get them on Friday. I'll be using these in a music only setup in my office with an Anthem Integrated 30 wpc tube amp and a Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496.

They will be replacing a set of Ian Paisley designed SPL 1000 bookshelf ported speakers with 2 5 1/2" poly drivers a 1" silk tweeter placed between them and to the inside. From what limited info there is on the M40Ti's it seems like these will be a great match for my little tube amp. I can't wait to do some listening over the long weekend.

That's a blast from the past. Hope you enjoy them.

Can't wait to hear your feedback, hope the 40's work out with your tube amp.

@wid - LOL. My system will be a great circa 2001 midfi system. That's about when the Anthem and Axioms were made. Only instead of $1700 I'll have it for $350 + another $100 for the EQ w/measurement mike on eBay.

@Sirquack - I'll post an update once I get to spend some time with them.

I really like the M40s... they're still my primary music speakers. It always surprises people when I take off the grills and they see such a little speaker producing such smooth bass. Enjoy !

Very nice!! What will you be using for a source?

I love Anthem products and Axiom. Love tubes amps, preamps, tuners and CDPs.

Please post some pictures if you have a chance.

Sources will be my Onkyo CD player, Sony HD radio, and my laptop run through my Fubar DAC. With the laptop I usually play .ogg files with Foobar.
