The award-winning M22 is Axiom's best high-performance bookshelf speaker,
ideal for an average-sized room or smaller. Its unique tall, slender
profile is an elegant addition to any decor, blending beautifully into
even the smallest room, whether wall-mounted or on shelves or stands.
"Combine this speaker with a powered subwoofer in either a two-channel music system or a multichannel home-theater system and you have one heck of a full-range system for a previously unheard-of price." - John Potis, Goodsound.com
Its dual 5 1/4 -inch woofer/midranges allow the M22 to play much louder than a two-driver speaker. Its output and exceedingly natural sound outperforms any speaker in its class: ". . . this experience has forced us to re-evaluate what a pair of $1,000 speakers should sound like, because these certainly sound as good as any $1,000/pair speakers we have ever listened to." - Gene DellaSala, Audioholics.com
Winner of the SoundStage! Reviewer's Choice Award and GoodSound! Product of the Year, the M3 speaker system attains remarkable performance. You owe it to yourself to audition these speakers.

Featuring XLF (Extended Low Frequency) Intelligent DSP Technology
The biggest advance in subwoofer technology in the last 15 years is here! The Epicenter EP500 is the first subwoofer of its size to truly go down to a couch-shaking 19 Hz in an anechoic environment. How is this possible? The XLF (a DSP chip) enables the EP500 to deliver spectacular deep bass -- as low as 18 Hz in a room!
Though claims of 19 Hz are made every day by manufacturers, specifications are normally calculated in unrealistic environments (like a closet!). Planning on using your sub in a real room? The EP500 achieves ultra-low bass with none of the uneven performance of conventional subs - Intelligent DSP doesn't allow peaks and dips. It controls every frequency from 16 - 100 Hz, maintaining a smooth, flat response within 1.5 dB across the range. That means you'll hear undistorted, profoundly deep rumbles all the way to 18 Hz.What's more, this subwoofer is unbreakable. The EP500's massive 12-inch aluminum driver with a 3-inch diameter dual voice coil, and its companion 500-watt power amplifier are tightly controlled by the DSP. Its special algorithm commands the subwoofer to deliver peak performance without ever being overdriven. And its maximum undistorted output of 120 dB is louder than a full orchestra in a concert hall. At last, professional cinema realism is available in your home theater!
The Yamaha RX-V659 (winner of Audioholics.com 2006 Product of the Year) is an intelligent blend of bleeding edge features mixed with excellent performance typically found in the more expensive models. From its iPod and XM radio connectivity and music enhancer modes, to its ability of delivering much MORE than rated power and not hiccupping on 4 ohm loads. We can’t think of a finer receiver in this price class. Kudos to Yamaha on such a well engineered and well executed product.
