Sorry, Mark, I'm pulling a Bob and I can't decide whether to do it or not. ;\) I figure I've got all the info I need from you guys, and it's down to my own personal choice, so I've been quiet about it.


And peer pressure doesn't help?

Actually, it wasn't me that cared. It was Adrian. Yeah. HE thinks you should buy it.

Rick, I've heard both the RS6s and RS8s and was impressed by them. I felt they sounded similar to P'digm Studios if not a little 'warmer' (did NOT A/B test btw). The problem I had with the MAs and the P'digms was mainly the $$ of a complete system...add a centre, surrounds ect and the price gets up there for essentially the 'same' sound as Axiom. \:\)


Thanks Adrian! Yours was the only answer to my question even though you addressed you answer to Rick. I am curious (yet hesitant) to ask, other than the price, how it is that you were not impressed yet feel that they were similar to Paradigms (of which the Axioms are constantly compared to?

The rest of you can feel free to ignore this thread because you are so off base. Initially I could understand your feelings towards this thread. I am done attempting to explain my curiousity of this brand of speaker.

The truth is, I was impressed with the MAs, Bob...it was when I started talking $$ with the dealer that he lost me. The surrounds alone(RSFX) were more than twice the price of the QS8s and the centre was also quite a bit more. I felt the QS8s were the better surround because of their quadpolar design. Remember, I wasn't able to A/B test against the Paradigm Studios but I felt the MAs were a little warmer and the Paradigms had a little more clarity higher up (detail?). The Paradigm Studio set up I was looking at would easily have costed 2X the price of the Axioms. So really it came down to value, you have three similar sounding systems (I won't hear the Axioms until I get them remember) so I went with what I felt was the best per $$. In the end, that fact, plus the overwhelmingly positive reviews swayed my decision (and cust. serv).

I agree with Adrian.I also listened to Paradigm Studio 60's,Monitor Audio RS6's in the stores and the Axioms at home with the 30 day trial.It would have been nice to AB them side by side and if your local retailer allows it, go for it and bring some home when the M80s are at your house.All very similar sounding speakers with clean highs and tight bass but the Axioms were the best deal.If they were all the same price I'd keep the Axioms they are just so accurate sounding you feel you are not missing out on any part of the recording.Dave Matthews/TimReynolds bluray is just sweet sounding.

Thanks Adrian! Despite what some people think, it IS valuable to hear others opinions in THEIR comparisons of speakers. I have read so many other opinions of Axiom vs ? I hadn't heard anything about these Monitor speakers. Since it was mentioned by someone in another forum, I THOUGHT the best place to hear an opinion would have been among the people who's opinions I have learned to trust. Not the first time I have judged wrongly in my life. Just ask my wife.
(On second thought, DON'T!)
