Isabel, It doesn't sound as if you are completely sold on the Axioms??? Maybe I'm not reading your post right? Like you I have listened to many speakers. I must say, I LOVE the Paradigm Reference Studio 100. But at $2000 for the front two!! I have been advised to listen to a couple others but yet to find them. (Maggies, Canton, Monitor) If you think they are anything like the Paradigm, I am sold. Like you, I am nervous about buying something I haven't heard, although most here say they are outstaning speakers. I am real close to pulling the trigger, but...........
