M2 v4 Bookshelf Speakers
Rated 4.9 Stars Based on 28 Reviews.
I already own a pair of the M2 v3s and will probably go for the upgrade to the new M2 v4. But...I have never heard better speakers...anywhere. Contrary to what some Pro reviewers have said....a SUBWOOFER is not needed with the M2''s....they have more than enough BASS, especially when listening to classical, jazz, or rock. Gamers might want a sub-woofer, but for listening to music....it''s not needed. My M2''s are played through a Pioneer VSX-522 receiver and the sound is truly magnificent.
These refurb ished M2v2's look brand new, not a single scratch or blemish on them. You sure could have fooled me. The sound is surprisingly great for such a compact speaker. Consider me one very satisfied customer!
Shipping was lightning fast, services was great and I have no complaints/suggestions in that department. Just want to stress my only slight disappointment was in the looks and quality of the veneer...fit/finish.
Very good speaker for the price. I never found speaker that matches the sound quality (neutral, fidelity,) even compared with speakers such as 8 000$. I always been very pleased with your service every time I bought from you. I own M80, EP500, QS8, M2, M3 and M22 speakers.
M2's are just as good as any speaker Axiom has within their range and purpose. Imaging and staging has no place for a speaker of this price. Incredible.
Best speakers I ever heard. PERIOD !! IMHO...a subwoofer is not needed. More than enough BASS, when playing either classical or jazz. They seem to IMPROVE the more they are played. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE !!
Only one word to describe these speakers: Awesome!!!
I was reading the research of Floyd Toole and was looking for the flat listening window frequency response bookshelf speakers he mentioned. Came across Axiom audio while looking and based on the reviews and the specs on the Axiom site, I was already sold on trying out the speakers before I even heard them. Amazing sound worth many times the asking price. Great customer service and guarantee. I am completely satisfied with my purchase. I wish Axiom was more well known to people in my country. Canadian speakers always seem to take second place to speakers from the US or UK over here.
Absolutely fantastic speaker for the money. I run 3 M2v3's as the left/Centre/Right channels in my HT. Excellent seamless sound that always blows away people when they see it. Axiom customer service was great, as was there technical staff that answered my questions before I bought. Highest recommendation. (PS: Buy QS8's for your surround speakers).
Excellent look and great sound.
I must say, Amie, your company is a real pleasure to deal with. Also, what I first heard when I tried my speakers was the distinct lack of the artificial brightness and brittle quality I noticed in some Athenas I recently tried. My ears got really fatigued fast with those. I prefer the signal as unaffected as possible. The Axioms really are gorgeous looking, as well. All the best,
I purchased a pair of the Axiom Audio M2TI's and one of the VP50 center channel speakers and was immediately impressed. These under $300.00 (USD) speakers blow away the competition in the $300.00 to $500.00 price range. They have a realistic quality to them that others in this price category cannot compete with. My CD collection runs the entire spectrum of music, from classical to rock & roll. While all sound great with the Axiom's, they really shine with jazz vocals. Legendary performers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong and Shirley Horn appear to be live in my listening room with the Axioms. I am so impressed with these speakers that I have decided to dump my B&W DM601's in favor of a pair of the M22TI's or the M40TI's. I have presently positioned the $430.00+ B&W's as my rear channel speakers. Incredibly they have been replaced as mains by my $240.00 dollar Axioms! While these speakers excel with music, they are also outstanding with home theatre. Over the past few years I have listened to less and less music, and only watched movies about once per week. I now find myself wanting to watch movies or listen to music every night because of the great sound I'm hearing from the M2's and the VP50. The scary thing is, these speakers aren't even broken in yet! I anticpate even better sound once they are completely broken in. I would recommend these speakers to anyone who wants a great loudspeaker at a great price. Axioms are not for people who like to waste gobs of money on their equipment, nor are they for people who choose name recognition over performance. Axiom Audio loudspeakers are for people who simply want to enjoy music and movies. Do yourself a favor and check them out.
Best speaker on the market today for all around performance. Adds great sound for all your audio needs movies or music. #1 in my books.
Just want to say thanks for an awesome product! I got my M2i today and I am greatly impressed. No matter what genre I listen to, there is no coloration! Highs are clear and detailed and the midrange is powerful and clean. I am only 16 and so my budget is very limited, therefore I was extremely skeptical about buying loudspeakers without hearing them over the internet. My fears melted away when I set up my M2is and put on a copy of The Patriot. The Axioms blew away my old Kenwoods that were twice the size and the outstanding maple cabinet and aluminum woofers look great next to my TV. I can turn them up as loud as I want and there is hardly any distortion. I will be coming back for my center, rears, and possibly the sub. I had them broken in two hours after fedex dropped them off and I was at the door waiting for them. I can't believe the sound I got for 250 bucks! Thanks!
Thank you very much. I look forward to hearing the M2i giving the great reviews received from prestigious magazines. Best regards,
thank you for the note. i am excited to hook them up and listen to what i've purchased. so far, axiom has impressed me. now for the true test.
We did receive our Axiom speakers and we are in LOVE with them! It is hard to believe such a fantastic, beatifully balanced wall of sound is coming from those two small speakers! If you close your eyes it is very easy to imagine that the vocalist and musicians are in the room with you. We are rediscovering our CD collection, anxious to see how each one sounds with the new speakers....fantastic! I will definately be recommending these to anyone and everyone. Thanks for such a great product!!
The new M2i is now the rear center channel of my home theater. Sounds great, just like I knew it would! :-) Thank you for your great products and your quick and friendly service.A very satisfied customer,
I'm really happy I tried my luck with you! Yesterday I finally tested M2i's with a good sub. I found myself listening my mouth open. Whatta sound!! Clear, neutral, airy and _soft_ YEEEES! I was smiling the whole day. I _definitely_decided_to_keep_the_m2i's._ Thanks! Once again. All the best for You and the whole company! Wish you a LOT of success in business. I try to do my part here in Finland. I really want to share the joy of dealing with you! I know I should support the Finnish loudspeaker industry which is not bad at all either (just to mention Amphion, Chorus, Crevasse(GREAT but too expensive and big), Genelec, Gradient & Penaudio for example). But still I chose you. Liked your speakers more and have to say I had quite a demands for them! And saved a lot by doing that! In the end a list of speakers m2i's compeed with (and beated, though not in realtime comparison side by side but in the long run): Finnish ones: Amphion Argon IIs Chorus 662 (excellent little speaker considering it's size, but nothing in comparison to Argon IIs and I didn't choose them but m2i Genelec 8030, 8040 (highly praised new studio monitors-didn't find them but dull and 2-dimensional though neutral, nothing to be excited with) Gradient Prelude(=600euros) and Lauri (1500euro high-end-Prelude made to Japan with different type marking (Lauri only in Finland) Penaudio Rebel II (thin, airy, sharp without sub (like m2i's) costs 1500euros) and international companies products: B&W 705 (The last rival of m2i's, a good compromise for all music but something extra in piano's middle octaves) 1200euros Duntech PCL-10/2 (strange, exciting, coloured) Dynaudio 42,52SE, S1.4 (ADORED the treble, unbeatable beauty but somehow the orchestral records made them beg for mercy) Mackie 662 (never get a pair to really test but sounded good in bad acoustics of the shop) MonitorAudio S1 (metallic, sharp, look TotemAcoustics) ProAc Responce 1sc (quite ok, not neutral but great with choir-music) TotemAcoustics Model-1, Dreamcatcher (too sharp, airy, didn't like titanium tweeters until yesterday afternoon in my living room ;) Quad 21L (great quality and price, little boomy, had a dynaudio 52se at the same time, treble shaded compared to that) Quite a list I'd say. Million thanks and bows to designer of m2i's! And for you for the extraordinarily good service! Yours,
Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the M2i speakers. I've had many stereos in the past 30 years, but none of them can compare to this one, thanks to the M2i. The sound is so clean, with such a wide sound stage, it is just unbelieveable!! A friend of mine who is a dj was over and he said he has never heard sound this clean. I have to listen to my music collection all over again, because Iam hearing things I've never heard before !! CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH!!!!
I received the M2i speakers today. My little system--Cambridge a300 amp-8inch Ar sub-M2i! I listened to Carmina Burana (Telarc) and it sounded wonderful. The old speakers Boston Acoustics HD10. The HD10s much too laid back. I am very pleased, thank you.
Our speakers sound great!! Teamed with our subwoofer-sound is awesome!!! We will definintely buy again from Axiom!!
Great product! Nothing close to it at twice the price. Thanks for processing the order and getting it out so quickly.
Finally, I have "highs" that are crisp and clear without any annoying harshness.
My new M2i loudspeakers just arrived, and I couldn't be happier. I feared that switching from Von Schweikert VR4's to smaller speakers was going to be a big disappointment. However, to my pleasant surprise, these little guys are extraordinarily musical and have far more low end that I anticipated?and they haven't even been broken in yet. Wow!
these speakers are well worth the praise they have received,along with a price that one would expect to be much higher based on performance. hats off to Axiom,don,t sleep on these speakers!
Initially, I purchased these to have a good starter surround system in my 12'x20' family room, but when I coupled them with the VP 100 and QS8's, I found it easy to balance the whole audio atmoshpere without upgrading these front speakers to the M50's I had planned on upgrading to... that would just be overkill without adding any quality sound atmosphere!!!
