Axiom M60v2 Introduction

You might think that the staff at Audioholics sit around and have a smorgasbord of speakers, amps, receivers, and accessories parade by as we pick and choose what we want. I’m here to tell you that is just not so (however much we might wish it were). We still contact each other saying, “Hey, you got a 3 meter HDMI to DVI cable? All I’ve got is 2 and 25 meter lengths.” It is, however, nice to have gear constantly flowing through your reference room – it certainly keeps things interesting. When Amie Colquhoun of Axiom Audio and Gene decided that perhaps I might be interested in checking out a pair of m60 v2’s and talk about the new VaSSallo finish options available, I was speechless. Might be interested?! Like I might be interested in a weekend without kids or a bag of gold or Peter Jackson directing The Hobbit. Heck yeah I was interested.   The bonus – pick a finish, any finish. :-)

The Axiom M60v2's are a 3-way, 4 driver tower speaker featuring dual 6.5" bass drivers, one 5 1/4" mid driver and a 1" titanium dome tweeter.  Standing about 38" tall and weighing almost 48lbs each, they are a medium size tower speaker system.  Let's take a closer look at these speakers.

Speaker System

Hey,

My name is Pat Hourigan and I am interested in buying your speaker system. I wanted to make sure that nothing is broken and the system works as new. Also, do you know about how much is wiring I would need to buy? About how much would shipping costs be?

Thanks,

Pat
