The trend for larger center channels seems to be happening. Paradigm, among others, has introduced larger center channel speakers in their three lines for awhile now, but if you want to see the "mother" of all center channels take a look at the new "EL" speaker line that "E Designs" just introduced.

Now THAT is a center channel!

Come on Axiom, lets get cracking!


Nice! But I was thinking more along the lines of a dual tweeter, dual mid, and dual woofer model to match the M80:

I know they just put that line of speakers on the website. They have been inundated with sub orders and have been super busy. I'm sure they will have that corrected as soon as they can.

I think Axiom pretty well covers the gamut of speaker lines and has so for a number of years especially when you consider the unprecedented number of finish options available.

Thats true for mid-line speakers, and that is where probably 80-90% of the buyers are. Once you step into a higher fidelity and higher priced line, you narrow your market considerably.

It would expect Axiom to offer wireless speakers before the offer a higher end bookshelf: much wider appeal.

I kind of wonder too if that once you target the golden ear market who are ok with spending tons of $ verses the law of diminishing returns.... will they even pay attention to you unless you ridiculously overprice to feed their audio-egos?

Clearly, there are folks out there who buy brand names to show off. The more expensive the better. However, why would you think that all the folks who would like speakers which are as good as the best or close-to-the-best, want to spend too much?

I'd like to spend as little as possible. I'd like to get speakers which are better than Axiom's current offerings and I'd like to get them from Axiom.

I didn't say "I think that", I said "I wonder if...."
Speculation is how we ask questions and explore a topic.
In order to successfully market into a niche market, you have to understand the niche.
