Is the M80 a big improvement over the M60. I was leaning towards the M80 but I am a little put off by its 4 ohm nominal impedance.

No to be honest. Tonally very similar.
The M80TiSe will have appreciably deeper bass if you are not using a subwoofer but their real strength is the levels that they are capable of. The M80TiSe can play very loud while staying open and clear sounding.
In a direct A/B comparison, the M60TiSe have a sharper focus on the stereo imaging.
The four ohm load of the M80TiSe is fine with most receivers. Out of my clientel, only one person has had a problem with the receiver shutting down. In that case, Axiom graciously manufactured an impedance matching box for the client to solve that.

Marc-

Thanks for the response.

I am using a separate amp for my mains. Will the 4 ohm load harm the amp over the long term?

If the manual for the amp says a four ohm load is okay then it shouldn't effect the wear and tear.
