Interesting. I have always been a big fan of the Paradigm Studio 20s (probably my favorite bookshelf speaker) but have never had a chance to A/B them with Axioms. It's nice to get another data point...

Other than the deep bass, where the 60s will obviously be superior, the M22s are supposed to sound VERY similar to M60s so I think you are going to be real happy. Just make sure you keep the 22s right at the front of the shelves to minimize any "boxy" effect from the shelving unit.

In reply to:

I was referring in general to the fact that I could hear very similar sound and pitch, etc




Kevin

Yeah! the overall tonal character of the two speakers were quite similar.

The first Disk I played was Joni Mitchell Hits. It has a B&W picture of her laying in the street with a white car behind at the curb.
The other was Arvo Part "Arbos" w/ The Hilliard Ensemble
The cuts we played were the last two Arbos and Stabat Mater.
Part's Passio (the Passion) and Te Deum are also very nice.
Gotta be in the right mood though.

The paradigm 20's and Axiom M22 are supposed to be very similar. I actually auditioned the Paradigms and liked them, then decided to go with the M22 since the cost was much less.

Make sure that gentleman doesn't remain nameless if you order from Axiom--he'll get a 5% gift certificate if they know about it.

Actually, the standard practice is to cut the person a check for 5% of the resulting purchase. I requested a gift cert once only because I was having trouble with Canadian checks. My last commission check -- from kaid's purchase, I believe -- was drawn from a US bank, so I had no issues depositing it.

I'm keeping quiet on this. I don't want to put the cart before the horse. But I can tell you he told me he really liked the 60's. After he talked to his wife she said she was all right with a floorstanding speaker as long as they were tall and thin. Hey! there is nothing wrong with tall and thin.
He was thrilled and wrote to tell me. So I think if he goes with Axiom he will be upgrading to the 60's. So now we wait and see.
