Grabbed a pair of mint M80 V2s last night. Had to drive 120 miles in the rain to Lancaster CA, to get them. I bought them from the nicest guy (Eric, thank you if you read this). He also had QS8s for sale and uses M22s. He is an Axiom guy.

Eric took great care of his M80s. They are like new. I put them in an easy room (great acoustics) and my goodness, but they sound terrific!!!!

I am very happy!

Another pair of Axiom speakers. They will be neither lonely nor neglected.

Ian, you do wonderful work. What a great speaker!!!

Thank you!

Good job BM , and yeah he has had those tweeters on other speakers as well. I think they may be some sort of super tweeter, which I don't need cause I can hear over 14k lol. The look to be in really good condition, depending on price it looks like a great score.

I have the M80v2 and they do sound terrific. Try (even if temporarily) to move them a third of the way into your room and watch what happens. And for Pete's sake 2x4, don't connect them up to tubes...LOL!

I am smiling so hard! They sound so wonderful!

I hooked them up to an Anthem, a Canadian solid state amp so they feel right at home.

Yup those are some tweeked super tweeters, upgraded with solen caps. I passed the wrong side of 14K a long time ago, I think.

Good advice! I am putting some feet on them and then will move them further into the room.

I'm embarrassed to say how much I paid. OK, I'll overcome it, $360, Eric didn't have change for the $350 price, so, the least I could do was donate an extra $10.

They are in perfect, as new shape. They sound incredible.

Thank you Bridgman for the imaging magic

wow , I know I could not resist that price even if I didn't need any speakers. Is Eric leaving the Axiom family ?

Oh and yeah I trump your hearing loss with a serious case of tinnitus
