M22 Bookshelf Speakers
Unusual configuration for unusually detailed listening
Are you ready to be blown away by a speaker with sound so detailed you'll listen to every album you own all over again? Critics and customers alike rave about the detailed and highly realistic sound of the M22, Axiom's best high-performance bookshelf speaker.
" . . .the M22s simply dazzled us, especially considering their price point. They managed to create a wide-open soundstage, while at the same time portraying a precise stereo image. So precise that at times, these loudspeakers almost seemed to disappear into the room. "
-- Gene Della Sala, Audioholics.com
Intricate, nuanced sound
You'll spend hours rediscovering favorite music, hearing subtle details other speakers muffle. The M22s deliver a soundstage of unprecedented depth and width, transporting you into the performance.
This isn't your average bookshelf speaker: the M22's unusual dual-woofer configuration mates with a 1-inch titanium tweeter to deliver all the power handling you need for demanding music and movies - up to 200 watts per channel! A connoisseur's bookshelf speaker.
Reviewers and customers love the M22 in both stereo music and home theater settings:
"Combine this speaker with a powered subwoofer in either a two-channel music system or a multichannel home-theater system and you have one heck of a full-range system for a previously unheard-of price."
-- John Potis, Goodsound.com
Its output and exceedingly natural sound outperform any speaker in its class:
". . . this experience has forced us to re-evaluate what a pair of $1,000 speakers should sound like, because these certainly sound as good as any $1,000/pair speakers we have ever listened to."

Uniquely elegant slender profile
The M22 is ideal for an average-sized room or larger. Its unique tall, slender profile is an elegant addition to any decor, blending beautifully into even the smallest room, whether wall-mounted or on shelves or stands.
These eye-catching speakers are 8 ohms and therefore easy to power with any amplifier, whether solid-state or tube. The asymmetrical anti-standing-wave tapered shape of the cabinet is highly resistant to resonances that can color other speakers' sound.
You don't have to take our word for it - audition these speakers in your own home. The M22s come with a 30-day in-home trial, a five-year warranty and free shipping.
