Ray, when I went with my friend to look at the Rotel preamp/amp, that was my fist experience of the B&Ws. By the way my friend has the 603s and they're clean also, but not in the 703 field. Just remember the showroom speakers are being pushed by separate amp and processor and not to mention a big high end sub that takes lows of a DVD to the bottom. I know that has to do a speaker a world of justice that a receiver can only think of.

I guess my point is I'm excited to about M60s or M80s, but until I get the power they deserve I don't think I'll be satisfied. Let us know how yur system turns out Ray.

I just wanted to comment on two things here. First off, when I upgraded my amp to an Acurus 150 watt unit, my M-60's sounded just incredible. It was if they completely disappeared in the room and sound was radiating from all around me. I never knew that they could sound that incredible. I was quite pleased. Not that they were bad before with my cheap AMC 100 wpc amp, but once I hooked in the Acurus to the system, it was as if I had never really heard my music before.

Secondly, I just stumbled upon this review on the B&W 703's on Audio Revolution. I think you'll find it interesting because the description seems to be exactly like what I've read about the Axiom M-60's, as well as my own experience with them. Considering that they are $3000, I think I made the right choice in going with Axiom.

Pay attention to part in the article on page three that describes the downside and the conclusion on the reviewer's experience with the B&W's. Sounds exactly like he was reviewing the Axioms to me, which I think is quite a compliment.

Top, my system turned out great - I"ve had it since February. I was just trying to give you a sense of how the M60s sound.

In reply to:

If the M60s are anything like this, I'm gonna cream my shorts when I get them.

Capn, I'd put on Depends before you fire up the M60s for the first time, if I were you. Or I guess you could just put a condom on to prevent a mess.
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Was it the Meyer-Emco Near Gaithersburg, Capn? If so, that is the exact same pair of B&Ws that had me sitting at my desk all afternoon one day with a big old "smiling Bob" grin on my face. I stopped by on one of my lunch hours.

Yes, the M60s sound similar to, but definitely a bit better than those.
M- M60s/VP150/QS8s/SVS PC-Ultra/HK630 Sit down. Shut up. Listen.
