Unlike loudspeakers for which much is promised, but that end up being little more than patchwork designs, Axiom's M22 On-Wall/In-Wall is an extremely well-thought-out speaker that gives you Axiom's trademark sound quality in a package much more convenient and spacing-saving than the norm. . . .dead-simple to install. . . .a unique solution for the audiophile who wants it all, but wants it on -- and in -- the wall.
The M22 On-Wall/In-Wall's midrange and upper frequency detail and resolution reproduction is terrific. Every little detail recorded by the close microphone was revealed accurately. I must say that the M22 On-Wall/In-Wall's are definitely overachievers.
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.
Bass response is excellent, tight and extended . . . [The M80] is detailed without being overly analytical, clear and open without being too bright, and presents a soundstage that is both wide and deep.
. . . a flattering, yet precise, sound stage . . . an airy, transparent top end, extending well out beyond audible range. The M80s are an outstanding value. . . You will not find loudspeakers that sound nearly as good as this, anywhere close to the modest price.
