    Default FS: Home Theatre Speakers

    Hey guys,

    Selling 2 floor standing (towers?) Merak MT66 Speakers.

    I tried looking for their website, but to no avail!

    Merak is made by Axiom, which is a very reputable company.

    The speakers are composed of 2 6.5" woofers, and 1 tweeter. There is a bass port located under the woofers.

    Black in color, come with both grilles.
    Speakers in excellent condition, grilles have slight wear on the sides.

    Will post up specific power handling within 24 hours.

    Here is one review:
    I read GoodSounds rave reviews of the M3Tis more than a year ago, and it sort of just percolated in my subconscious. I then bought a Merak MC6H center speaker with a 7"x3" horn tweeter and 2x6.5" drivers from uBid for $19. It just blew away my expensive Infinity CC3 center. Worse, the more I listened, the more I realized that it sounded better than my expensive Infinity Composition Overture 3 towers. When I found out that Axiom made Merak, what I had read about the M3s came bubbling up from the depths.

    I picked up a pair of M3Tis and met the wonderful folks at Axiom (by phone), ordered a pair of nOrh monoblocks finally gave up waiting for them. Grabbed a cheap Technics SADX940, dusted off an old JVC carousel CDP hooked up the M3s and just about cried. These $220 speakers coupled with a receiver which cost me about $150 just absolutely blew away my Harman Kardon AVR65 Infinity system.

    I had an epiphany. My Harman Kardon AVR65 all Infinity system was junk. I sold it. Picked up an Antique Sound Labs MGS1 15DT tube amp and Ah!4000 CDP and they just make the M3s sing.

    I replaced the HK65 with an Onkyo 797THX, the Overture 3s with M50s, the Infinity RS3 sides with Merak MT66 towers and marvel at the improvement.

    Anyway, sorry for the long story. Love the Axioms. Love the Axiom made Merak horn center channel speaker. Love the Michauras I've stumbled on as well.

    Not very specific to the speakers, but just as a guideline.

    Thats where the review came from..

    There is also another review out there by the former editor of Sound & Vision and Audio magazines comparing these speakers to 600, and 1000 dollar speakers.

    Asking 150 OBO

    I'll try and get pictures up soon.

    Thanks guys
