I went with the M50's (backed-up by the EP-500 sub) and love it. With my budget tight, it won over the M22's in my case because with 3 kids <=5yrs old, I was afraid of having "top-heavy" stand mounted speakers. Plus, I didn't really have a set-up for placing speakers on bookshelves.
Maybe someday I'll join the M80 club, but for now I'm very pleased with the output and the warmth of my system in my ~1300ft3 room.

I use the stand argument to talk myself out of M22s and into M60s. Then I went and bought M80s.

Ill keep saving and try for the 50 or 60's.I know my receiver can only go as low as 6 ohms..Pioneer vsx1018, so the 80's are out.

If you are going to keep saving, I would go for the 60s. They really are an excellent speaker.

Hello

I own a set of 50's and their great. Don't be put off by what others say. Most have never listened to the 50’s and yet still have an opinion of them, doesn’t make sense.
I’ve mentioned in other posts that I have never heard the 60’s, but I think it’s safe to assume their excellent. My contention is this; I would wager the 50’s don’t sound that much different than the 60’s.
Your money and your choice, either way, Enjoy!!

Many that HAVE heard both the 50's and 60's, including Axiom company employees, have noted on numerous occasions that the 60's are more detailed with better bass extension by design, and the 50's have more of a laid back sound.

"But these subtle differences are really only easily noticeable on instantaneous A/B comparisons with a switcher."

So how does this "subtle difference" become important if the difference is so understated that one can’t make a distinction under normal listening conditions?

You’re welcome to your opinion, as is everyone else. As far as the extra bass extension you refer to, it’s 2 Hz, not a great deal.
