hi

just starting out with the decision making and was wondering if anyone has either of the speakers. I don't know anyone so actually have the chance to listen is, well, nil.
I checked the specs( which don't mean much for me) since I don't have an understanding that way...its all in the ears..but
The amp I was going towards is the Elite-32
I am still up the air regrading the surround and the Sub
I heard that the RTi A9 has very good low response so I cold if I wanted to go big is get them and avoid a sub until I can afford it..again any advice with actual owner would be helpful.
Visual appeal is important to since any big speaker will be in our faces so a wood grain look is preferred to simple black( in case you want to suggest others in these price ranges

thanks

Stirling please see Axiom Speaker Buyers Beware .

With so many Canadian speaker manufacturers to choose from I would recommend looking to other possible models.

Finally, don't buy speakers without a thorough listen.

Thanks Hugh..I have read your article regarding them( AXiom)
AS for the Polks or any speaker for that matter..I am out in the woods and about 3 hours from anything...listening to everything is going to be hard. That's why I was hoping for some actual users here...as a way to eliminate some obvious poor ones...a consensus is usually correct

Other 'factors' aside, I assume you're looking for the best sound quality and price. I've got the M60 speakers (as well as others from the Axiom line) and am extremely happy with them. I originally purchased the M22 speakers as a trial, and was amazed at the sound quality.

I've used the M60's both as stereo standalone speakers, and as they are now in a 7.1 home theater setup with subwoofer. They produce a substantial amount of clean bass on their own, considering they don't have physically large drivers. It's the smooth midrange and clean, clear top end that really sold me on their speakers, though.

They do have a 30 day in-home trial, so I'd take advantage of that. If you decide you don't like them, you'll only be out the return shipping cost. The only proper way to audition speakers is in the environment you are going to be using them anyway. My guess is you wouldn't be sending them back, but speaker preference is a very subjective thing. Good luck!

Understood. I am simply suggesting that you cast a wider net in your search since my "real life" experience with this particular brand of speaker was less than fulfilling from an auditory perspective and from a business perspective as my previous link will attest.
