Taking a page out of Nick's book, I thought I should post a little about the reviews question that catbrat and gtsuper brought up in another thread.
First, some good news: we actually sent product out to three different reviewers last week, so more reviews are on the horizon!
Second, there have been reviews since 2007 certainly, and if our site doesn't do a very good job of showing that then we will definitely work on that, and I thank you for the criticism. I have noticed that new reviews are the most-clicked-on items in our newsletters . . . well, other than new product mentions, naturally!
Third, although we put over a year into developing v3, it was difficult to convince reviewers that the product was different and worthy of reviewing. That's a reality in an industry with hundreds of brands, unfortunately, and although some reviewers recognized that there were significant differences, it is easier for them to point out 'shiny new finishes' or 'snazzy new configurations' to their audience than it is to show improvements in nuance and soundstage and tonal response. For those of us in the Axiom family, the differences certainly weren't subtle, and a lot of you who upgraded noted as much in your comments to us.
Fourth, and here's where it gets exciting - with the launch of new products hinted at in our October newsletter, it should be no problem at all to get some new reviews generated, so please be patient!
I have long struggled with how to make our customer reviews easier to post, because I think a lot of us are as interested in how other customers just like us find certain products as how professionals do . . . I'm starting to favour allowing comments to be posted with a Facebook login. I'd love to hear your feedback on that.
Oh, and I am not sure if I have missed any, but here are some of the reviews from the last 18 months, to show that I'm not making this up!
