Joey, I know you have been frustrated in your attempts to get your point across to the members here. I have an idea. If memory serves, you are in Greater Chicago. If you are willing to fly to Erie (pretty easy through Cleveland), I will re-imburse you for your travel. You bring the Polks with you, and I will set both the Polks and the Axiom M22Ti's on identical stands, and we will conduct blind tests. As you are listening to each speaker, I will take note of your listening impressions, and we will post the notes.

As they are both bookshelf speakers, we will use two Rocket UFW-10 subwoofers with each speaker, and our McIntosh Amp and a modded Denon 2900.

You bring your own music...and both speakers will be level matched...

Seems like a reasonably fair test. I would trust Craig to be sure both speakers got a fair shake. Do I understand correctly that the Polk's are $1300, and the 22s are $400?

This would be interesting how could he say no.You could definetly know the test would be a fair one with Craigsub doing the reporting.

Inane... The infamous "death by audio" e-mail was traced as far as California, and appears to be nothing of concern...I will be avoiding one hostile forum... and I will stay involved in audio...

Thanks... An open question... Aren't Californians supposed to be mellow ?
