So then, you mean that what you are really trying to say that no one here has heard the Monitor Audio RS8 nor have compared them to anything Axiom. I haven't heard Monitor speakers myself nor have I heard much about them.

Thanks for the attempt at an answer. Maybe someone on another forum would have an opinion on the Monitor Audio RS8 or other Monitor speakers.

No, Bob. Read Carefully:

I'm saying that it doesn't MATTER whether anyone here has heard the Monitor Audio RS8 nor have compared them to anything Axiom. It STILL won't tell you how they'll sound to YOU until YOU'VE heard the speakers in YOUR room with YOUR material and YOUR personal perceptions.

Didn't I just say this? Yeah, I must have. I copied and pasted it from my previous answer.

I have a new definition for fatiguing!

Mark, what about Martin Logan's ... how do think they compare to the Axioms? Thoughts? I read something, somewhere the other day....

I have asked people's opinions of Axiom speakers both here and elsewhere. I thought most of you were beyond the "fan boy" attitude on Axion speakers or at least to be able to give a valid opinion of another brand. I think most of you are reading WAY BEYOND my question. AND there is certainly no need to repeat yourself. Just ignore this thread if it bothers you so much. Or ignore all of my posts if I bother you so much.

IT WAS JUST A QUESTION ASKING FOR AN OPINION OF A SPEAKER!!!!!!

IT WAS NOT REFERENCED TO ANYTHING I MAY OR MAY NOT BE THINKING ABOUT MY ORDER!!!!!!

IS THE MOON IN THE 7TH HOUSE OR IS JUPITER ALIGNED WITH MARS???

I did say I was sorry! (now I'm repeating myself)

Bob, if I believed everyones opinion I have found on the internet re. speakers I wouldn't have bought anything. In the end the only thing that matters is that YOU like what you hear. There's always going to be specific posts on any forums that don't support what the consensus believes. The cream always rises to the top, that is why certain co's are usually compared to each other in regards to speakers. Monitor Audio is one of those, so is Paradigm....if I were to pick which sound I liked best out of this group, I would have a difficult time choosing...show me the price of admission and I know I made the right choice. BTW, there's no shortage of friendly 'barbs' on this forum...they're all in fun, not meant to be malicious, just to add some lightheartedness to the discussion.

Bob, I believe the issue here is that more often than not it *seems* like you are openly questioning your purchase with the Axiom products, folks here are just suggesting that you wait until you have a chance to hear the speakers first.

Maybe we're just reading you wrong?

BoB/335,

If you are having a tough time finding comparisons between the Monitor Audio RS8 and the Axiom M80's do an indivdual search on the RS8's on the web and compare those opinions to what you have heard on the Axiom M80's. Maybe you will even run across some posts that talk about both.

Rick nailed it from MY point of view.

And it's not a fanboy thing, Bob. We're all VERY open to preferences other than Axiom. But first, try a search. What your asking has been asked over and over.

In the end, though, you're right. I should have just stayed out of this....

Bob, I'm sensing people here just don't have experience with this particular combination and sense a nervousness or hesitancy around your order (weather that be accurate or not, it does appear to be evident). So, they are actually trying to be helpful in the one way left that they can be, by attempting to reduce your nervousness until they arrive and you can hear them for yourselves. At this point, discussion would hopefully reconvene and it would actually be you giving us the value of your new experience.

In general, I find the veterans here to be very forthcoming with opinions when they have them and do a good job to try and remove as much subjectivity as possible by backing it up with fact or stating that they are indeed subjective opinions.

If further subjective opinions are strictly what you are looking for, here are a few Google found for me.

opinions 1

Opinions 2

Opinions 3

Opinions 4

Most seem positive but are not the subjective comparison with an M80 you are looking for.
