Unfortunately, getting face time with the folks that make decisions on what is reviewed and then convincing them that you have something new, shiny and fashionable/trendy can be very difficult.

Marketing departments can expend a lot of time and energy on such things, sometimes with disappointing results.


I hadn't really considered that aspect of it. I suppose I assumed the technology and specs in both the Axiom amps and EP800 spoke for themselves. I don't see how people would NOT be interested in getting more in-depth with them. Anyway, as a consumer, it would strike me as odd if a company's products only ever got reviewed by a select few sources, whatever the reasoning behind it. But yeah, I don't envy the marketing department. It has to be stressful trying to get your company's products into the hands of people who will be responsible and even-handed in their assessment, especially in an industry that does so much business based on consumer ignorance.

Not to mention magazine reviewers, who are more likely to review products from their advertisers. To the best of my knowledge, Sound & Vision is the only magazine in which Axiom advertises. And that's probably because of Alan's ties.

Does Alan wear one of those mind controlling psychadelic ties with swirly patterns on it?

One speaker configuration you don't see in Axiom's line up, is a smaller three-way tower using a single 6 1/2" wfr, 5 1/4" mid, and 1" twtr. Perhaps it's too close to the M60 to be considered though.

That has come up a number of times over the years. My recollection is that they've tested just about every conceivable configuration; that one didn't prove "better" than the M22. And it would certainly be more costly to build.

Oh, yeah, a floorstanding surround speaker. Thanks for reminding us.

OK, that would be a new twist on the theme... actually I haven't seen the QS12 talk for quite awhile; not since multichannel audio went out of vogue.
