Dak, as shown in the NRC measurements here , the M22 impedance drops to about 3 ohms in the upper mid-range/lower treble, but this is certainly no cause for worry and hasn't given me any for the past 9 years. The heat load on an amplifier isn't determined by the lowest speaker impedance in a particular frequency range, but by the average impedance over the entire frequency range when playing music.

My point john was that the minimum impedance is the lowest that the amp will ever see.

I am surprised that they go as low as 3ohms, i did not think it would be that low. Even still them amp will only see a 3ohm load for short periods of time, and at 5khz infrequently.

The M22's minimum impedance is quite low, even with a negative phase angle but it is up in the frequency range where the power demands are not that great. Other than that it is a typical load.

I compare Watts, DAC and DSP.

Has anyone found a certain manufacturer that makes the axioms (especially the M22s) sound "better" in their opinion.

Denon, Onkyo, H&K, Yamaha...others?

No.
And no one on these forums to my knowledge has ever performed a properly controlled, random, blind, SPL matched and instantaneously switched A/B listening test to even remotely provide confidence of such a conclusion.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
