I've been surprised at the relative absence of mentions on this forum of Axiom Audio gear. They're a small Canadian company, but then again the hi-fi world is full of tiny manufacturers that manufacture all over the world, not only in the US and UK. My local dealer spoke highly of the brand and said he used to carry their speaker line. I have a pair of Axiom M3 v3 bookshelf speakers and I quite like them. They're the last thing in my system I would upgrade, I'm quite satisfied with them. Great value and great build quality, and at least one bookshelf speaker shootout (over on Audioholics, if I recall correctly) put them ahead of a set of Klipsch speakers that cost $150 more. I've seen shots of the speakers disassembled and was impressed at the apparent quality of the internals. I certainly think they are one of the top picks for under-$500 bookshelf speakers. I have no desire for a subwoofer after using these speakers for about 14 months, the 6.5" woofer does such a great job. Build quality is very high, as is customer service (they were quick to respond when I unboxed my new M3's and found one in black finish and one in cherry finish!). So, I'm just wondering about other forum members' experiences with Axiom hardware. I'm especially curious if anyone owns one of their amps, or their flagship M100 and M80 floorstanding speakers.
