Yes, Axiom speakers are as good as you have read about.

Having been involved in mid-range and high-end audio in one form or another for years I was a little skeptical about buying speakers over the Internet. Axiom’s 30 day trail offer combined with the reviews from users and pros convinced me to try them. I’m glad I did. I was building a new home theater and auditioned a lot of different speakers: Paradigm Monitor 9/Monitor 11, Paradigm Studio 60, Monitor Audio Silver RS6/Gold GS60, Klipsch Reference RF-82, and Definitive Technologies BP10/BP7004. I ordered the Axioms to trial them and will be keeping them. They are astonishingly good speakers especially given the price. I would describe them as VERY transparent. They will bring out poor room acoustics and call out poor recordings with little mercy. But, if you have good room characteristics and decent sources they will deliver clean clear musical highs and mids with a fantastic soundstage and great imaging. In terms of overall sound I would class them around the level of the Paradigm Studio 60 or Monitor Audio Silver RS6. This is phenominal given that a pair of M60 v2s will cost you less than half of either of those. The DefTech BP7004 beat all the others in terms of low frequency extension, but they also have built in powered subs. This sounded great with some types of music and for movies but was a bit too exaggerated for other material. Given the choice I personally prefer an external sub(s).

I have my M60s set up with the VP150 CC, QS8 surrounds, and QS4 rears. I opted not to go with an Axiom sub (no particular reason other than I really wanted to try an SVS) and went with an SVS PB12-NSD instead along with a Velodyne MiniVee I already had. I love this setup. Movies are amazing and music is incredible. I’ve demo’ed this setup to several people and after listening to the setup they find it hard to believe that I paid less than the price of a pair of good retail mid-range floorstanding speakers for the entire 7.1 speaker setup.

I also had a chance to experience Axiom’s great customer service. One of the speakers had a slight blemish from an impact during shipping. It was VERY minor but still bothered me given that they were new. I sent Axiom support an e-mail on a Saturday and by Monday they had already issued an RMA, return label, and shipped out a new unit. They were responsive and accommodating. Quality product, excellent customer service, and very reasonable pricing – every company should be this good.
