This whole ordeal really, really ticks me off...
I fully expect the center to sound like crap when I get it back. I actually found a thread on Axiom's website where someone was complaining about a "muffled" sound from their 150 model (not sure which one) Axiom center. He had it jacked up +5 or +6 dB on his receiver...which is I guess what I'm going to have to do if I can't sell these.
I checked Ebay and there is only ONE pair of M60s on Ebay with no bids...
Sorry you are having issues with the Axioms. May I ask a question? Did you like these prior to the calibrator paying a visit? If yes, then I don't think I would worry about it and enjoy as you may have a case of "oh crap", the calibrator states there are issues. If you liked them prior to the visit I would continue to use them.
Now saying that, I had your exact speakers with my first set-up. I try to stay out of Axiom debates as many like them so fine. But in my opinion, and I was a newbie and learning, even I could tell these speakers were brittle, bright and fatiguing. I kept them past the 30 days (big mistake) as the boxes got wet in a rainstorm on delivery, and I tried to convince myself they were okay but to me they were not and music was horrible.
As I have said before it was a learning experience. The lesson was stop reading internet reviews so much and try to go listen on your own. Also, IDs are not the magic spell like many claim. You will learn where IDs will cost you is when you try to sell them. In general, IDs are going to get a lot less upon sale than a name brand. I don't care what anyone states, this is fact.
I almost gave mine away in a yard sale just to get rid of them. No one wanted them on Craigslist.
I hope you can start over, listen to many different brands of speakers. And form your own opinions. Maybe start with L/R and add center later and go for a bit higher up in the food chain by taking your time.
Good Luck on the sale if you decide to list them...
