The 100's have 40 more.

No apologies necessary, I have OFS and didn't realize I had said anything. I really wanted a ADA amp but somehow talked myself into another EMO. Don't get me wrong, the EMO's are great amps but they take up a lot of room. All amps sound the same and since I already had a 3 channel amp for the fronts leaving the amp's in my Denon 3311 to handle surround duties the upgrade is severe overkill and made no sonic difference that I could hear. The combined peak max output of both amps is like 2500 watts/4ohms (based on specs) which along with everything else I have plugged in to a single outlet would set the house on fire if I tried to draw that much power . LMAO eek grin

Hey, Adrian, whazzup?!

I think, like every Axiom speaker, the goal is to have the final product not sound like anything other than the program material emanating from the enclosure. The M100's are more articulate and display more clarity across the entire spectrum, but most noticeably in the lower reaches. There's 50% more woofer surface area, for starters, than 60's or 80's, but they are a different animal. It's sort of like having the 60's and my ep500 on together, but with more definition.

Of course, the biggest differences from the 60's are doubling the # (surface area) of the mid-range drivers and tweeters, along with the larger cabinet. So there's more specificity in voices (and MOST other sounds) and those shimmery things, like some cymbal sounds. Then you sort of have an M80.

Now, make all those same changes to the 100's. Add an additional(redesigned) woofer that brings a more potent and punchier lower end, then tweak the cross-overs for an even wider and more open soundstage.

Those, to me are the most noticeable differences between my M60's, Chris's M80's, and the new M100's.

I think the price differences between the 60/80/100 are, relative to performance improvements, as usual around here, pretty on-the-money. The value/dollar ratio seems rather consistent to me. No Axiomoe would be disappointed by these, unless you need more than 7 drivers per cabinet to be happy!

If you have 60's or 80's, these really will make you go, "WHOA!" Those areas of your house where others could go in order not to hate you? All gone!

Hanging around here gives us a skewed sense of value. These are NOT $2500.00 speakers. If you could sit here and listen to Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black," you would phone Brent or JC w/o asking your wife.

Murph, come on down and visit and I'll take you out for a really nice lunch.


Sorry, I was laughing more at Bob's way of expressing himself than your clothing choices. I own a Hemp Tilley for kayaking if you'd like revenge.
