Hello,

I was just wondering how everyone is enjoying their speakers? I am really curious what everyone owned before they finally settled.

I just bought new speakers but i still want a full set of axioms.


Speakers: Energy RC-70s, RC-LCR, RC-Rs and eD A2-300 x 2.
Receiver: Marantz 6006

I'm probably not a good one to comment here, because the only other speakers I've had any experience is some Bose 901's back in the 70's and a HTIB before buying Axioms. Also, I don't have the M80's but I have 2 sets of M22's that I use; click on link in my signature line.

Watching movies at home is much more enjoyable that watching them in a theater, IMO, even though my current screen is only a 37 inch tv. I am in the process of converting a lower floor at home into a small theater with a 100 inch projection screen that will have 3 M80's behind it.

Been enjoying them for nearly 7 years. Before that it was a pair of Def Tech Pro Tower 400s and before that was a set of Bose 901s.

I love mine, same as my friends that come over and are interested in audio. The only problem that I have is that I can't enjoy them as much as I would love to smile I have a small child that goes to bed early so most of the time I have to listen to them at very low volume.

I've owned most of the lineup, except m40's and m50s, love all of them, but the M80's are awesome.

Naw, I love 'em. Most of the time, like Bruno, it's at low volume, where they still sound great. But when you can crank 'em, they sound amazing. Before the 80s, I owned M50s, and before that Cambridge Soundworks Ensemble 1s. We shall not speak of what was before that.
