Summary: For Axiom Audio’s VaSSallo M22 v2s, following the
flow of recorded music was a piece of cake. Their naturalness eliminated all the
artificial overcompensation that is all too common in reasonably priced equipment.
Midbass, upper-bass, and midrange notes were precisely articulated, and what the
M22 v2 lacked in low bass (as will any bookshelf monitor) it made up in crispness and
clarity in the treble.
Summary: What we have in the M22Ti SE is a beautifully
tuned speaker with an enormously clean and musical midrange combined with a smooth,
coherent and friendly treble. 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.
