Pros

  • Innovative bracket/termination system
  • Small size
  • Uniform off axis response

Cons

  • Bracket screws strip easily
  • Speaker sits far enough off wall to allow visibility of the hole/wires
  • Occasional disengagement of speakers from brackets can disrupt playback

Introduction

From the magnetic grills to the innovative (if quirky) wall mounting bracket system, the Axiom Audio M0s are a speaker unlike any other. Of course, coming from Axiom you'd expect them to deliver sonically - and they do. If you are looking for an unobtrusive on-wall system for a smaller room, the M0s are a very good choice and deserve to be on your short list. At $135 each and with a free 30day in-home trial, you've got little to lose except your preconceptions about what a small speaker can do.

Would like to read more, but…

I keep getting 404 site not found errors when I click on either the Next button or select one of the items from the page menu for this article.

I would have posted this message on your site admiinistrator's page (as directed by the 404 error message page), but when I click on the link (on the 404 error page), I still get the 404 site not found error.

Just an FYI that something's goofy with this article.
