After lurking around here for years I finally bought some Axioms. Bought an auction pair of M3s to be used in a bedroom stereo set up. I'm a little disappointed the Burled Walnut is no longer available but that Smokey Grey looks pretty cool.

edit, just checked I guess the official name is "Charcoal Smoke"

Once your ears start using them, your vidi-balls will turn a blind eye. Have a blast with 'em, Luc the Lurker! laugh

Nice purchase; I have a friend who's looking into a pair of M3's. I'm interested to hear your opinion after you spend some time with them.

Purchased yesterday, expected delivery today - can't go wrong there. Problem is, I'm still in the negotiating stage of the 2 channel system, well I mean that I've accepted his counteroffer and still waiting for the seller to send me his info so I can pay him. Oh well I guess I'll just have to set up the M3s with the Anthem for now.

Should be a fun weekend as they will be pitted firstly against my Studio 60s and then to be a little fairer I will compare them to my Atom v5s

Excellent! Post a comparisons here. The Studio 60 M3 match up should be interesting. Given the design approach for both (flat and neutral), I expect they will sound like they come from the same family.

The M3 Atom comparo will be interesting as well. I don't think I have ever seen a direct comparison of those two.

Well the M3s came in on time and so far I am impressed, the packaging used for shipping is the best I have seen, the speakers look great, have good weight to them and the finish is impeccable. Now the bad news, the deal I was working on for an IA and CDP went south and I just haven't had the time to hook up the M3s to listen to them.

Have been doing some research for a new Integrated Amp and have decided to take a chance on a Chinese tube integrated (because I'm cheap) and it's inexpensive (maybe cheap too - time will tell) smirk

Anyways these are the spec, it's a nice looking amp though

Frequency 5Hz-70KHz
Driver Tube 6N3
Distortion Less than 1% at full power
Input Consumption <80w
Signal/Noise Ratio 90d
Ohms 4 ohms and 8 ohms
Input Jack 2 groups (CD Input ,AUX Input = USD & SD Card)
Size Dimension Width 260mm x Height 140mm x Depth 210mm
Colour Black Body With Silver Handle & Black Power Supply
Weight 10 kg
Packing Includes All the Tubes / Valve + Standard 1.5m (5 ft) Power Cord
