I to0 have only heard the RC-70 in FS. The 70's are a nice speaker for most people and when on sale, are a good buy. I would really like to do a better comparison in my home, but I think my wife would kick me out for doing more comparisons right now. I do remember thinking the 70s were not as detailed or clear as the Axioms I own. I seem to think this alot when I listen to other speakers until I listen to the higher end line ups.

I just returned from FS after listening to the RC70s and agree that there is some detail missing there, sounded good but not great. I also heard the Klipsch's next to them which I felt had better base, someshat more clarity and initially was ok with the highs. After about 10 minutes though, the Klipschs were seeming a little to bright for me(I liked the base though). Also heard the Polks while I was there, sounded kind of muffled and lacking in detail. Imaging was fairly good on the Energys and the Klipschs I thought.

I too did the same here as most gentlemen.I narrowed it down to the Paradigm Studio 60's,Monitor Audio RS6's, and the Axiom M60's.I also was purchasing a center channel and had to factor that into the price.I had Paradigm Monitor 7's and a CC350 center that I was looking to upgrade.My first inclination was to go the Studio line but the price of $2,000. for the 60's and another $1,000. for the CC590 center kept me from going with new.The RS6's were similar priced to the Axiom M60's but again their center was $799.Even with discounts the Axiom's were still the better deal for in my opinion a just as good if not better sounding speakers.I am very happy with my M60,VP150 front sound stage and is a noticeable improvement from my Paradigm Monitors.
I have that higher end sound I was looking for without breaking the bank.

f1nels, thanks for the input. I've heard some good things about Mon A RS6/8s but like you say...it comes at price (the surrounds are twice the $$ of the QS8s). Never-the-less I'll audition them anyway, for my own piece of mind. The Paradigms are also very nice, people say the Studio 100s and the M80s are similar as well as some B & W's soundwise, so it's good to hear these other speakers to compare. We all know how the prices compare.

Listened to 3 other brands "in my home" but the M60s sounded better than all of them and the price was something I could definately live with so... after I had the M60s in place I decided to keep them. The others weren't 30 day trials but I had access to them so I set them in place and did some a/b/c testing for a week or so. Had I not been happy with the Axioms there were a couple other Internet Direct brands I was going to try. So in my humble opinion if even if you can listen to speakers in a store they don't sound the same when you get them home and an Internet Direct company with 30 day money back guarantee is just as good a deal if not better especially when you consider that the Internet Direct speakers would probably cost twice as much from a brick and mortar store
One other thing, if the Axioms would not have had a 30 day in home trial I would never have heard them because I wouldn't have purchased them if I hadn't heard them or if I couldn't do a trial and send them back if I didn't like them.

Can't peak too soon! I hold that Ace Card until I get them back to the pad. Then I say "would you like to watch Top Gun...while holding my crystals!" Beaten them off with a stick I tell you.
