Seems that the verdict is already out on Bryston Model T Series over on a couple of other forums - not good - most likely because 'you know who' builds them & I told them so.

Nobody has heard them & up to now, there are no definitive tests with measurements, etc; however, how they will sound has already been determined. I said BS - you have to listen for yourself before passing judgement - but of course I was chastised for that. I guess that they can tell how a car will perform or how an airplane will handle by looking at its picture. I certainly don't have those talents & now I feel so inadequate!

Even poor old Bob Carver's new towers are not being well received, even though no one has actually heard them either.

This is a strange pastime that defies logic & common sense. I just don't get it...

I don't understand it either. Why do a few ding dongs have such distain for Axiom. But they must know more than Mr. Tanner. Must be like road rage the "two tweeter thing" drives them CRAZY! smile I've done a lot of web research this weekend for 3 way bookshelfs and came across Wharfedale Jade 3 bookshelfs and going to give them a listen. But I'm going to keep my fingers crossed (but not hold my breath) that Axiom comes out with a bookshelf similar to the Model T Minis.

If you have the magic powers that some seem to have, you shouldn't have to give them a listen - just look at the pictures & you'll know how they sound.

A pragmatic, common sense kinda guy like me has such trouble with these concepts...

No No, it isn't just how they look, you have to have the cast baskets, uber crossover components, ultra tweeters etc. before you can determine by looking and reading, how well a speaker will sound.

I didn't listen to the Minis but I had a chance to listen to the big Model T... naturally coupled with Bryston gear. I think they are phenomenal, but then I love Axiom. The interesting thing is that I had a friend with me who is not crazy about Axiom mainly because because he dislikes having many drivers in one speaker. That being said, my friend too was VERY impressed with the Model T.

As for the other forums... it's not even worth the time going there; they have exact same attitude towards Axiom as they have against another Company: Emotiva, which uses the same business model as Axiom. If I was to summarize the attitude, this would be my take:
"Hello; I'm in the market for speakers/amplifiers. I've heard about Axiom/Emotiva. What do you guys think?"
"Well, I've never owned or heard Axiom/Emotiva but... they suck big time. Don't buy."

I'm sure I have the same tendencies, but I really (intellectually, at least) think it's foolish to dismiss a speaker because of design decisions like quantity of drivers without giving them a listen. It's probably the same as dismissing a car based on the number of cylinders, but damned if I'm getting a minivan or SUV with less than a V-6. Heh.



EDIT: Stabs self for making car analogy. Ow.
