So, you gonna answer Tom's question about what speakers you've listened to and liked, or are you going to continue lambasting us for supporting a company that's done right by virtually all of us?

Let me separate that out:
Answer the questions we ask, and maybe you'll get answers you claim to want.

In reply to:

Writing a novel each time only detours the responses dude.




... and draws the attention of the board's psychiatrist ...

You know, this board has been an entertaining diversion from work, a nice lunch break activity, etc. Today it seems a little too much like work. Many times I ask my clients, "Are you listening to the words that are coming out of your mouth?" Seriously. Lack of insight into one's own behavior is a major reason that people see guys like me. Another is misinterpreting the actions of others, which leads to miscommunication and further bothersome behavior.

As always, ultimate change must come from within. Stone__Man, whether you are intending to or not, you are becoming a troll. I'm not saying this because you criticize others or our speakers. We're not looking for "yes men" here. I'm saying this because you are coming off as antagonistic, abrasive, and defensive almost to the point of paranoia.

And there's only one way to deal with trolls. Stop feeding them.

At least this once, apparently. Usually I turn off my superpowers after 5:00.

I will try to address the hearing (or ear) problems you talk about.

I too have had trouble with my ears for a numbers of years. I have had far to many inner ear infections to even count. At one point haveing to have drain tubes inserted into my ears for right about six months or so.

I also have had some pretty serious bouts with sinus problems affecting my hearing. As of right now I have a ringing in both my ears (tinnitus) I cannot or will not ever get rid of. There is times when this gets to the point that I have pretty sharp pains that shoot through my left ear and causes me a tremendous amount of pain. To rid myself of this I have to go on a series of different medications.

When I went to the ENT for my last hearing test it was noted that I had some hearing loss in the higher frequencies starting at 4 KHz. It was not substantial but it was indeed there.

Now on to the Axioms and their affects on my ear problems. I can with out reservations tell you that my M80s has no ill affects on my ability to enjoy my music. As a matter of fact it is a blessing that I found a speaker that I can clearly hear a cymbal when brushed or hit. Other instruments are (to me) reproduced as if they were right in the room with me. A guitar sounds like what it does in person, same goes for the piano, brass instruments and every other forms of reproduced music I have had the pleasure of hearing.

I hope this gives you some comfort in knowing that even though my hearing is far from perfect I can still sit down with my favorite tunes and the Axiom M80s bring a big sh!t eating grin to my face every time.

BTW is there a speaker, either past or present, that you have listened to that could give us some sort of referance as to what you like?

J.P, you are indeed a welcome addition to the forum.

Stone, at the risk of assuming J.P.'s role, I find it telling that, rather than see Tom's question as a genuine attempt to help you, which is precisely what it was, you chose to interpret it as something other than an olive branch of peace, and continue to rag on him. Very interesting.

I hope you'll do better with Wid's attempt to help.

Stone: let me try a little different way to address your issues of hearing problems and not being able to audition various speakers.

It may be considerably more beneficial for you to focus on your receiver's characteristics rather than the sound of a particular speaker. Most receivers have a treble control and/or equalization that you can program. You could probably adjust your receiver to suit your listening desires and not worry about the speakers.

Just something to think about.
