Greg, I don't know if what you were referring to by the "$250 discount" comment was the email sent today to owners, but it in fact offers a $250 "Gift Card" discount good until December 1st. It can be applied toward a speaker purchase of $500 or more(not Factory Outlet, refurb or B-stock), so this would be usable for a VP160, for example.

That is exactly what I meant. I wasn't sure if everyone got the discount so I was trying to be subtle.

I had to have a custom riser made for my VP-150 and have asked the guy who made it to price me one that will hold the VP-160. If anyone needs a tv riser to house your center channel PM me. All the guy does is TV risers and they are top quality and fairly priced.

No. not everybody got an offer. I've not been a long standing customer but have dropped in excess of $5000 in the past year with Axiom, so it can't be based on sales amount that they cut people from the list.

I might have picked up a sub or something like that with a nice offer like that, but there is always another year.

You can always call Axiom and ask. I never got the offer either, but I don't think they have a valid email addy for me any more. I would expect that this is why you did not receive one.

Fred, I'd agree that those owners who didn't receive the email should check directly with Axiom if they're interested in taking advantage of the offer. One point that indicates that this wasn't intended to be narrowly limited is that the email states that if the recipient can't use it, it can be "gifted to a friend."

Well I used my $250 coupon on the M60's. I did so as those are the fronts I have wanted for ten years. I really enjoy listening to music and that helped make the decision. In addition, the new VP-160 is quite the massive speaker and I really like the slim look of the VP-150. If I still think the front channel needs more punch, I'll pony up for the 160 after the 1st of the year. Birthday in January and I need to celebrate somehow . . .

Good on ya. You will love them and I dare say that is plenty long enough to ponder and wait for something that will bring such pleasure. Enjoy your new speakers smile

Watched Godzilla last Friday and want to say I noticed a pretty big difference in sound over the M22's. That could be wishful thinking. I'll do more testing this weekend. The M-60's certainly have an awesome presence in my room.

Greg. What version are the M22s? Where are you hearing the difference?

When I did my comparison at the factory with V2, I was surprised at how much the same the M22 and M60 were in the mids and treble: virtually indistinguishable. Obviously the M60 has/had much deeper bass, but add a sub to the M22 and that advantage disappeared.

I wonder if what you are hearing is improvements in the mids and tweeters? I always wanted to compare a V2 directly to a newer version.

In my case the comparison was between M2i and M60ti, both crossing over to the subs at 100 Hz to go easy on the M2s.

I thought the sound was surprisingly similar at moderate volumes, but all of my friends thought there was a huge difference and the M60s had much more "presence" (yeah they used the same word as GregM).
