Shut your mouths!. Stop talking about this!. You are bothering old FredK! Carrying on about all this nonsense.

We don't need many posts here. Pick from one of these because that's all you need!

1. Should I get M60 or M80. Answer: Get the M80.
2. Should I get the M3 or M22. Answer: Get the M60. Someone will make the appropriate response to that suggestion.
3. Should I get an outboard amplifier? Answer: all well designed solid state amps sound the same. Just use your receiver.
4. I think receiver x sounds better than receiver y. Answer: All well designed receivers should sound the same. Therefore, there is no difference and you only think you hear a difference
5. Should I get x brand cables or interconnects. Answer: use shoe laces. All cables sound the same.
6. I heard a tube amp that sounded beautiful. Should I get a tube amp? Answer: Tube amps are distortion generators. You only thihnk you liked the sound of a tube amp. Get a nice transistor amp and they all sound the same.
7. I thought I bought a V3 but they sent me a V2. Answer: There is no difference.
8. Should I upgrade to a V3? Answer: Oh yes. V3s enjoy superior sound quality.

That should do it.

The only people that say there's no difference in SQ from receivers are those that have YET to hear a difference. Never went cheap enough.

Must... resist... a TMBG reference!

Ian, I think the problem with a lot of people who post here is that they are trying to tell everyone that there are better speakers out there, and that we don't know that. No offense to Axiom, but of course there are better speakers. In reality, only one speaker in the world is "best" (however that is defined) so all but 1 speaker is inferior. So when people make the comment that there are better, it's an easy thing to say.

Most people here chose Axiom because they felt it was a sweet spot. Fantastic performance at a great price with stellar customer service. I don't understand why some people continually post negative comments here. Do they think we don't know there are "better" speakers? I've auditioned many speakers in my short 41 year life. Have I heard better? Of course! Have I hear worse? Of course! Have I heard speakers that perform like Axiom for their price? VERY few.

I am constantly amazed by my speakers. Being away from home a lot, it's like they are always new to me when I come home and am able to sit down with a beer and enjoy and hour of music. They are brand new again and wonderful. This is my reaction. When friends and neighbors come by, they are always amazed by the sound.

I've never really got into the details of my experience with Axiom, but I think it may be time. I originally bought 2 EP500s. When the EP800s came out, I was able to trade them in, get 90% of my purchase price back, and get the EP800s. Since I did not buy them during the pre-release, I was not eligible for the pre-release price. When I contacted Axiom about it, they gave me Axiom dollar credits for the difference (per Ian's direction!). How many speaker companies do that?

When I wanted a custom center to compliment the M80s, I contacted Ian directly... And got a response! We were in contact for months as the development of the VP180 progressed. It was a fun experience, and one I will never forget. When the speaker was ready, my previously obtained Axiom dollars covered it. I didn't pay a dime. It was custom made, with my name on it, and signed by Ian. It's priceless to me. How many speaker companies do that?

I could go on and on... I stick with Axiom because Axiom is a company I am proud to display in my home, and ENJOY in my home. I love their products, I love their customer service, and I enjoy the banter of the the folks on this board too. Ian should be very proud of his company and products and quite frankly owes people like SOV no public response. It shows the type of person he is (and his dedication to his craft) to take the time to respond.

I've babbled on enough. Suffice it to say that I'm a very proud Axiom customer. I will really never understand why people come here to tell us there are better speakers. WE KNOW THAT... WE ARE NOT STUPID! WE BUY WHAT WE FEEL IS THE SWEETEST PERFORMANCE TO PRICE RATIO AVAILABLE. It's not that we cannot afford more expensive speakers (we have doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc.) on this board. We (and I use "we", maybe I should say "I") just think we are spending our money a bit more wisely.

End of rant.

I approve this rant. smile

In all fairness to Axiom, these better speakers you've heard… were you able to compare them against your Axioms in the same room? How about under blind conditions? Because to truly call one speaker better than another -- to your ears -- you have to do that.
