I guess that I'm in the minority. I search, research & search again before I ever post. Hopefully my queries get answered so that I never have to post.

For most it may be a pain in the butt, but I actually find researching on the net to be quite enjoyable. I think that a lot of it is due to the 'I demand it now' syndrome that is so prevalent today without expending any effort. It also seems that many want to have their choices 'peer approved' - it's good for their self esteem I guess...

This is an old thread, so I don't expect much comment.

However, I was the OP at the AVS thread and I very much appreciated nickbuol's interjection within the thread. As I stated in the AVS thread, I was open to all opinions-- and boy did I get them from one in particular.

AVS forum is full of people that are very polarised and negative. Most come off as helpful, but there are a few that are obviously negative by nature.

Overall, I enjoy speninding time here- even though I don't own any axiom products, because the environment is much more congenial. Even when debate occurs, it is done with respect, reason and sensibility.

So thanks to all, and don't let the fanboys get you down! smile

Things used to be the same way here. Then JP joined and we all started getting FedEx packages from him. Now, we're all serene-like.

I'm glad you kept an open mind. Some people really don't seem to have much of a life.

I just got my first set of Axiom speakers last week. I got a pair of M80's, a VP180, and a pair of QS8's and I have to say so far I am really impressed with the setup. I did some research before I bought them and I also stumbled upon the AVS forum and saw a lot of negative post. What impressed me though is one of the Axiom employee's chimed in to discuss Axioms even though the forum was clearly trying to discredit Axiom. I did some further research and read a bunch of the profession reviews posted at some of the magazine sites and found those to be pretty positive. I decided to give Axiom a try despite what I saw at AVS, I figured I had 30 days to return them if I really didn't like them. Let's just say I won't be sending them back.

I paired them with a new Pioneer SC-67 receiver to make sure I had plenty of power to drive the M80's and I couldn't be happier. I already owned a nice SVS sub so I kept that and I am happy with how it pairs with the Axioms

Welcome!

I remember having a similar hesitation before purchasing, but I don't recall any of the nay sayers having owned Axiom products, so I figured it was sour grapes. I have not looked back since... nor have I visited AVS much except when linked here.

I hope you continue to enjoy your system.

Welcome.

Thankfully you seem to have a strong, independent mind unlike so much of the general 'herd' out there.

We're glad that you weren't mislead by the negative opinions of a few that are often based on hearsay & misinformation...

AVS could be a decent site if the moderators actually did their job, shame since there are some decent members there despite the trolling and baiting that seems common. I frequent another audio site that has pretty much zero tolerance for that kind of riff raff.

You've been seeing another forum? How long has this being going on? Do you love this other forum, or was it a fling?

I had a chance to watch a couple movies this weekend and the more I listen the more I am enjoying the new Axioms. The VP180 center channel is great, no more struggling to hear dialog. I did get in on the last day of the thanksgiving gift card deal so I have a $600 Axiom gift card that I'm going to use to get another set of QS8's for the rears.
