Amie,
What cables were these new ones blind tested against? Did you test against that insanely expensive stuff? Monster? my garden lighting wire?

I reckon marketing hype will be unnecessary. I'm guessing that alot of the speakers they sell are to people like me who are finally transitioning from 2 channel to HT.
"With all these extra speakers I need more wires!", says the customer.
"Hey, we got wires, too! Blind tested and guaranteed to be as good as any other copper wires on the other planet!", responds Axiom.
Nice example of a company responding to an actual need from their customers rather than trying to artificially create a market for their product by colluding with audiophile publications.

I like the idea!

So, given the prevailing philosophy on this site, that all wires are the same, Axiom could say their cabling will perform as well as cables costing thousands of dollars! I'm certain, in many cases, they would be right!!

You're beginning to get it, 2x6. I understand that counsel has drafted "No Better Sounding Cable Is Available At Any Price!" and is totally confident that the language would be unassailable.

the real test for them will be corrosion. For the two on the left in the pic anyway. I have some old monster cable that looks like that which turned black. and some old radio shack that looks like that that didnt. the problem though is the ends oxidize if they arent terminated and sealed. I also have used those bannana type plugs. they sell em at radio shack and all over online. I would much rather have permanently terminated bannana plugs or even better SPADES than those because again, they oxidize and are kina funky the way the wire goes in. The cables in the axiom newsletter look pretty acceptable to me. because they are sealed so they shouldnt oxidize and they are permanatly terminated and plus they just look alot better. it will be intersting to see though how much they sell for!
