I was visiting another forum and someone was mentioning speakers they had tried. There was no other comment (good or bad) about M80's other than he had tried them.

I PM'd him (Not giving any names here. Hope this lives up to "internet etiquette") Here is his reply. I thought that some here may have an opinion to share about this.

I had the M80 V2. Good, very efficient much like the Paradigm Monitor, but after hearing the Monitor Audio RS8, I was hooked in that there was something I define as more balanced and defined with out a haarsh or bright high end. The Axiom was generally louder do to its efficiency but......


And yes, I understand that this is NOT a Paradigm speaker he is talking about.

Bob-
Is there a local facility that would be willing to freeze your body into a solid state until your Axioms arrive?

Say it with me....

Oh, I had a bad day yesterday. Much more relaxed now. I was just generating a discussion that I'm guessing you have nothing to add to. Thanks for stopping by!

Take a look at it from a different perspective. Mark is adding something...

Bob, your quote is one man's OPINION. It is neither more, nor less, valid than any other OPINION. Speaker preference is SUBJECTIVE. The only OPINION that matters (to you) is YOURS.

Here's what you can count on. Axiom is a respected manufacturer of Audio equipment with excellent customer service. They stand behind their product. If you are dissatisfied with their product, you may return it within 30 days for a complete refund of your purchase price. Yes, you would pay the return shipping costs but, if you think of that as the cost of renting a set of speakers for 30 days to be certain they are what you want, that expense can be less painful.

When the speakers arrive, try real hard not to prejudge them. Fire them up the first time with an open, neither pro nor con, "we'll see" attitude. Indulge in at least 3 weeks of comfortable, relaxed, no pressure listening to a variety of music and movies, both familiar and new, BEFORE reaching any conclusions. During that period, try, as much as possible NOT to listen to your system. Listen to the MUSIC; get into the MOVIE; ENJOY yourself. At the end of the 3 weeks, you'll KNOW if the Axioms are for you.

P.S. You also might consider not asking for help and then disrespecting those who are trying to do just that. This is, after all, the "Advice From Axiom Owners" section of the forum, is it not?.

BoB,

Have you noticed that many forum members seem to be getting impatient with your hemming and hawing?

This thread is one of quite a few reasons for that. Mark gave you some sage advice. Add a couple years to your life and stop stressing out. Once you receive the speakers and listen to them for a few days, if you don't like them THEN you should start stressing out.

*sigh*

Bob, we're not trying to drive you into a corner here. No need to be so defensive. Just enjoy your speakers!

Bob:
I started posting a reply earlier when my computer froze. When I signed back on, I saw that Jack had very eloquently posted the majority of what I wanted to say.

What you have to understand is that your type of question has been asked ad nauseam and there IS no answer for it. Therefore, discussing it just gets old.

This is not math where absolutes rule. Some prefer Chevy, some prefer Ford. Neither is right. What one person calls fatiguing, another calls accurate.

The rooms make a difference, the material makes a difference, the preferences and experiences of the listener makes a difference. It doesn't MATTER how one other person describes it. It's how YOU like it. And that simply can't be discussed until YOU'VE heard the speakers in YOUR room with YOUR material and YOUR personal perceptions.
