I've got to tip my hat to the folks at the axiom community. I've spent time in a lot of forums, here, there, and all else where....

You guys here have a great thing going. I've been at AVS, Audioholics, and others. Here it seems there is genuine interest, comradery, and kinship among new and old here.

I'll be the first to admit, I'll probably never buy an axiom product, nor any other online speaker brand. But the value these positive and informative communal posts give is priceless for someone who is looking to find somewhere to ground all of their passion for the hobby.

Take pride in what you have here. It doesn't exits everywhere for sure.! Maybe its a canadian thing, eh?

Cheers.

Welcome.

I'm sure that you've seen some nasty & less than cordial behavior elsewhere - happens here sometimes as well.

We generally get along pretty well as we have a pragmatic & mature approach to this stuff. There's lots of knowledge lurking here & we're more than willing to help...

WEll, we do try to be 'special' around here. grin

Out of curiosity, why is it that feel you are unlikely to buy any online speaker brand?

I've always had great luck with picking up gear as it goes out of rotation at higher end shops. Right place at right time kind of thing. Got my first (and still going laugh ) Panny Plasma TV as a demo unit. Recently picked up a speaker package that was 1/2 price because they are discontinued and selling off remaining inventory etc. I wouldn't have been able to get into a boutique brand otherwise.

I am also a true beleiver in supporting the local ma and pa brick and mortar stores that are still around. smile

This way I can get awesome value and know exactly what I'm getting. I am also a big fan of demoing in a treated and acoustically designed room-- so I have something to strive for at home. Always reaching for just a little closer to the "store sound." cool

Now now Charles. He was nice to us. smile
His reasons are as valid as any. Enjoying the hobby is what it's all about.

I read a lot of technical forums for various reasons but this is the only one that I regularly post on and feel a connection to the other regulars with. A rare mix of objectivity to balance out the hardliners. But hey don't get me wrong, a forum needs hardliners too to keep the discussions flowing. Tie in a mash up of very vividly different personalities who don't mind adding a social aspect to the techie talk and ya, it's pretty interesting around here. Kudo's to the admins as well for only ever interfering in a discussion if it becomes shamefully extreme. This adds an air of objectivity. Let's hope they are never forced to do otherwise.

It's not a perfect forum, but certainly the best I've participated in so far.

If buying online speakers was such a bad deal, I wouldn't have bought... 14 of them (returned 3), using 7, sold 2.
