Axiom's award-winning Epic 60 / 350 system is a solid choice for listeners who expect realistically loud, clean playback levels and thrilling DVD movie and multichannel music playback almost the equal of the Epic 80 system. The Epic 80 will play louder in bigger rooms, but in terms of transparent tonal balance, the Epic 60 is virtually its equal. And because the M60 tower main speakers are an 8-ohm load, any good-quality A/V receiver can easily drive them, especially in rooms of 2,100 to 5,000 cu. ft or “great rooms” with vaulted ceilings that don't exceed 5,000 cu ft.
The M60 main towers that anchor the system achieve wide dynamic range and excellent, clean, high-volume performance with an airy, spacious soundstage and neutral, high-accuracy music reproduction. At an attractive 37-inch height, the M60 features dual 6.5-inch aluminum-cone woofers, a dedicated 5.25-inch midrange, and a one-inch titanium-dome tweeter. The VP150 center speaker has good power handling and wide dispersion for fine dialog intelligibility and a seamless front soundstage. Coupled with the EP350 subwoofer, the system will deliver realistic, high-volume multi-channel surround sound with music or movie soundtracks. The QS8 quadpolar surrounds, with four drivers each, deliver an astonishing sense of envelopment in the ambient soundfield with movies or music. Center and surrounds can be wall-mounted or stand-mounted.
Listeners who yearn for profoundly deep subwoofer bass to 15 Hz and below will want to upgrade to the EP500 or EP600 DSP subs, included with the Epic 60 / EP500 and Epic 60 / EP600 systems. The latter systems also include the upgraded VP160 center channel speaker for listening distances that exceed 15 feet.
