Everyone: I hate asking for what could be perceived as a lame request, but it never stopped me before.

My wife largest concern with me buying Axiom speakers...now get ready for a shocker....is their appearance in our family room; its true, many women really care about such things....

Anyway, my request is to anyone who feels charitable and willing to assist, would you please take a picture, two or more, of your M60s or M80s--with grills ON. Any such photos that would help me show my wife what they look like in a home. I'm not asking for photos of your entire room, nor HT. More, I'm asking if anyone is willing to take some semi close shots and some that are just far enough away to truly represent their aesthetic design. If I could have my choice, I'd be hoping for several photos--taken in good lighting--from about 3 to 4 feed. Some from head level; some from the level of the speaker; some from 10 feet away to see how they "blend" into the room.

Now before you suggest I check out the pictures on this web site, let me say I believe what Axiom displays are quite one dimensional. They really don't give the prospective buyer a true feel for what their speakers look like in a room. As I know many of us have seen, some vendors have paid bucks to have their speakers photographed in an expensive room with excellent lighting. At least that effort assists in deciding process of the "significant other". Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking Axiom in the slightest. They are not in the business to make a near perfect web site. I just need a bit more support to ensure my boss that they won't distract from the rest of the room (wink, wink).

Since I want quality photos, please email them to th5512@hotmail.com. That way, I can collect them all and show the wife what they truly WILL look like.

Thanks in advance,

TKHanson

I don't think your request is out of line at all. In fact, if I had M60s or M80s I'd be taking pictures of them for you right now. Of course, my wife would roll her eyes, but she's (mostly) harmless (at this momemt).

I've got pics of the M50s (and M22s) here. They're somewhat similar. The finish on the M50s is Vermont Maple; the M22s are Boston Cherry.

I agree regarding the photos on the website. I'm biased (my background is in photography) but I really wasn't getting a great sense of the finishes or cabinet shape from the web.

Let me say first that the speakers are, as many others have said, better looking in person than on the site. Second, my HT is somewhat taken apart right now, but I was planning on photographing it tomorrow anyway. I have M60s in Beech with black grills. I'd be happy to take some extra photos for you. E-mail me and let me know if you want them for printing or viewing on your monitor and whether or not you have a high-speed connection.

TK- i will just post them here instead of e-mailing them to you. i know you regulars have seen these a million times, but i still like to show them off every once and a while

these M60's have custom cabinets in the classic oak w/burnt sienna grills.. keep in mind, my entertainment center is HUGE, so they make the 60's look small. the camera flash also made the grills look kinda pink, but they arent.








hope those help you out..

TK- isn't it weird how women want this kind of stuff to "match the room" or not "clash with the decor"? bizarre... anyhow here's a couple of pics of my m-60s with the standard boston cherry with the black grilles. please excuse the random spots, it seems like im overdue to clean the lens of my camera! of course now i'm opening myself to ridicule for still having bunny ears and a vp-150 thats friggin bigger than my tv!
