Thought I heard from forums saying they sound similar.

I like the sound Paradigm Monitor 7 v7. Bright enough yet not harsh. I also like the sound signature of all Paradigms be it studios or the sigs. Everything paradigm just sounds right to me.

I just wonder if the type of sound Axiom put out is similar too. If yes I think I'll try out one.

I've never been able to listen to them in the same room at the same time but yes I think they sound similar.

I have and yes, very similar.
If you do some searching you will find mine and many other reviews of the two together.

I've not heard them both, but I had figured that someone who had would chime in that they are, indeed, similar. That was the impression I had gathered on the boards. Must be a Canadian thing.

Both brands were developed through the NRC program and have similar design goals.

It used to be that the Axioms were compared to the Paradigm Studio series, rather than the Monitors, but that was quite some time ago.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Tom hit the nail on the head. Both companies offer neutral, uncoloured sound reproduction with similar bass extension, imaging, sound stage and power. Business models are quite different between the two companies, id vs dealer network. Good luck and enjoy whichever speakers you choose, they are both very good.
