I recently purchased a pair of M100 floorstanding speakers from Axiom. I have to comment that this has been the best buy that I have made compared to the B&W I had previously. The sound that comes out of the speakers -the tweeters and the base units are amazing. Having played these units for almost a month I will certainly give them a rating of 5 stars.. I also had in my possession Axiom M80 which I traded in for the M100. The clarity of the sound that the M100 produces is beyond reproach. I would definitely give the speakers a 5 star rating.

I recently took delivery of Axiom M-100 floor standing speakers. These are very impressive speakers, handsomely packaged in a wood grained cherry finish, frankly the best speakers I have ever owned. They deliver clean, rich, natural sound over the entire musical spectrum from crisp highs to tight deep lows. Superbly effortless sound ? no distortion. These speakers make you actually feel like you are at a live performance. Axiom has hit it out of the park with the M-100s.

I had M80's first versions and now own the M100's. in a 7.1 application. The family of curves have certainty changed over time, but what I can say is that the bass is more present, I've always felt that the M80's lacked a little in the bass dept. so from my perspective these M100's are Axiom perfect little secret. Axiom has outdone themselves with this new flagship tower speaker it doesn't get any better than this!

In the time since these speakers arrived, I have been very impressed with their performance. In comparison to the M80s these speakers are quite a bit larger and much heavier, but the soundstage provided by these speakers is much more immersive. I have had the opportunity to test several movies and different types of music and the one thing that stands out with these speakers is their very impressive bass output. I recall after watching Lord of the Rings that I noticed I forgot to turn my subwoofer on prior to watching the movie, however during the duration of the movie, I never noticed that the subwoofer was not on, that speaks volumes of the level of bass output provided by these speakers! The mid and upper ranges are also very strong with these speakers. There never seems to be any strain, all the mids and highs seems to be produced naturally with these speakers, no experience of straining which I have had with previous speakers. I use these speakers in a 5.1 setup along with the VP180, QS8s and a EP500. These speakers are fantastic as a pair of fronts for a home theater setup, but having tested them in a stereo setup as well, they are also a very strong option for stereo users. In terms of amplification, these speakers seem to shine at their best when connected to an external amp capable of driving atleast 300 watts into each channel. I noticed these speakers were able to produce a lot more power, especially in the lower range after connecting them to an external amplifier.I give these speakers my highest recommendation, the amount of power produced by these speakers is simply outstanding and will keep you wanting to listen for hours on end, they are quite addictive. An easy 5 out of 5 stars!

I've had the M100 speakers for 2 weeks. They replaced the M80 speakers I had for 3 years. I run each speaker with its own NAD 2200 amp in bridged mode. The biggest "noticeable" difference with the M100 is incredible bass. It's clean and much more powerful sounding. This also makes everything sound like its "right there". Vocals, guitars, cymbals etc. are crystal clear. Its like M80's on steroids!!!
