I'm a little late to the party, but I am super happy with my M60 & VP180 combo for up front. I used to have the VP150, but the 180 is amazingly better.

Sounds like it. I am willing to bet that just by changing to V4 of the M22 and VP100 I would probably be amazed. I can't believe how much has changed since my original purchase. Upgrading to the M60 and VP180 should just about knock my socks off. I don't want to get too excited yet until I hear back from Debbie but she sounded pretty confident she could get me a fair deal on the upgrade.

nickbuol,

Glad to hear! If this works out, I will just have to upgrade the M2i's that I am using for surrounds. They have actually worked fairly well over the years but with the massive upgrade on the fronts...I can see the surrounds needing attention soon. Unfortunately, I am trading in the M22Ti's so won't be able to use those as surrounds.

Debbie and Ian go out of their way to please existing clients. Upgrading to the VP180 from the VP150 has been fantastic. Upgrading to the EP500 from the EP175 was surreal.

My next purchase is likely going to be either M100s or maybe even LFR1100s to replace my beloved Totems. I'm hoping to be able to drop in on Axiom again in July with "the boys" for a listening session :-)

It's funny. I got home last night and told my wife about my conversation with Debbie. She was surprised at how nice the company was especially with some of the pain I had gone through with some companies in the past with other unrelated products just trying to get warranty coverage.

Then my wife almost gave me a heart attack. I was turning around to head upstairs to go change out of my work cloths and she said "what about these other speakers"? I stopped and asked her what other speakers and she pointed to the M2's. I was puzzled at first but asked her what about them. She said that since I was going to be getting new front speakers, won't these back ones need to be new too?

I can't tell you all the things my brain started telling my mouth to say right at that moment...instead I stared at her in silence wondering if I was being led into a trap. I think she realized I was afraid to say something and she finally said that she knows we really didn't have the budget for new back speakers but she knew I wanted to replace them and the new speakers were going to be way bigger then the back ones and it made sense to replace them now too.

Needless to say, I told her no. For one, we really don't have the budget or I would have bought the M80 and VP180 with the EP800 and some new surrounds in the first place smile Number two, it's a trap! She wants something, I know it!

Take the bait, upgrade to M5s and deal with her ask later. &#128513;

Axiom is terrific to deal with.

You are certainly the poster child for the M5 lol. Umm, personally, I think the M5 might be a little overkill for surrounds. At least in my house. Way to big physically in the area I would have available to put them anyway. I was thinking more like the QS4 or 8 or maybe the M3 even. I actually have 4 M2i's I could trade in but like I told my wife, not budgeted for it right now and still trying to work out trying to get the M60 and the VP180. Have not heard back from Debbie yet on those. One step at a time grasshopper smile

I had four QS8s. They were 12 feet away for sides and rears. They are puny. I traded all four of them in for two QS10s for sides. I dont even miss the rears. They are soooo much better. I was missing so much. My Onk found them at 40 Hz (like my M5s and 160) and that's where I've kept them. I'd really like to trade them in for QS14s though. M3s are also a good choice but if you choose to mount them close to a wall, you may need to plug their sphincters. On wall would be a good choice also.

Yeah, I love the M5s. I love them so much that they'll have big brother M100s to look out for them in about two weeks time. smile
