I'm here in Sacramento, CA. I cannot find a single person who has an Axiom speaker system to audition. Could you forum members give me a comparison to what other brand of speakers sound like the Axiom. I really like B&W 700 series. I hope they sound similar!

Thanks For all the advice....Stanmanh

They sound most similar to Paradigm Studio 100s.

It's been awhile since I have heard B&W's so I have no comment on that comparison.

This is anecdotal as I haven't auditioned them myself, but many here have specifically mentioned the B&W 700 series as very similar in terms of sound quality....

There are a couple Axiom owners in Oakland. That's not too far to drive.
