M60 Floorstanding Speakers
Winner of the GoodSound.com Great Buy Award! If you'd like the startling definition and realism of the M80 tower in a more compact, 8-ohm version, check out the M60s. A three-way system with triple vortex porting , a dedicated 5 1/4-inch midrange driver, titanium tweeter, and dual aluminum woofers, the M60 effortlessly reproduces the full musical spectrum.
"Some speakers tend to push the image to the back of the soundstage, but not the M60s. They gave me a close, intimate listening perspective, as if I was sitting on stage with the performers."
-- Vince Hanada, GoodSound!
One of our best-selling speakers, the M60 is now available in two versions; standard and High Power. The latest High Powered version has all the same midrange and high frequency detail that makes the M60 such a popular model in our line but has much increased power handling and maximum SPL capabilities in the bass region. The High Powered version is best suited for systems that do not contain a sub-woofer, which is likely the case in most 2-channel systems which are gaining a lot of popularity these days. This is the go-to speaker for the demanding audiophile who wants a speaker that performs equally well with music and movies, and wants a speaker that can handle the demanding dynamics of Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound or thrilling 2-channel stereo orchestral playback. We guarantee these speakers will be the envy of the neighborhood!
"While not full range, these speakers should be able to produce all but the most demanding bass passages. At reference levels, the M60’s made my couch vibrate. In my book, that’s a winner!"
-- Tom Andry, Audioholics
If it is full range playback without a subwoofer that you need be sure to select the High Powered version.
Outstanding for stereo listening, the M60s are an excellent foundation for high-end home theater. Precise imaging with unprecedented clarity and deep bass will redefine how you think of home theater.
The 8-ohm in the standard version and 6-ohm in the High Powered version make the M60s easy-to-drive speakers that will create ultra-clean, high-volume levels in large rooms . The standard M60s have available in Customize Yours options for bi-wirable inputs and die cast baskets. The High Powered version comes stock with these options. Carpet spikes are available for both in Customize Yours.

The M60s presented a convincing soundstage and lived up to their 'revealing' reputation. Every breath, every move of the lips was recreated so accurately and untainted, so that at times I literally felt like the microphone was right in front of me. The M60s put out a very respectable amount of bass and I felt I was missing very little if anything by not having a subwoofer engaged.
Axiom Audio has done it again: another killer model in a whole line of excellent speakers.
The Axiom M60 v2 performs so far above its price that it might be the best speaker bargain today . . .
The Axiom Audio M60 v3 gave me the reliable engineering excellence I expect from the Canadian school. It also gave me something I didn't anticipate: that extra dose of audio excitement I often hear in more exotic designs.
