I get paid too - and I didn't even review them! $20/post. I hear peter gets paid like this too, we just keep it from you normal posters.

I read through the thread. If you don't praise that brand's questionable nature - you're an Axiom shill. How mature. They didn't give an address or phone addy, in addition to not having -/+ 3 dB ratings next to the frequency response. And the "weaknesses" on the audioreview site were identical for three reviews. The only person in that thread going on the offensive was the person who got kickbacks for giving the speakers a good review. And we think they're shady - I wonder why.

You want to buy from them. The beginning of that thread looks like you're convincing us of why we should convince you into buying them. You want to buy them, yet want to have people give you validation for buying them - just BUY them if you wish to do so, so badly! No reason for headaches when people tell you they look like a shady brand. Or just go someplace where people will give you their utmost sincere validation for buying them. Trolling here for that purpose is useless.

Giving an opinion is one thing, even if it's completely uninformed. Lying out of your a-- is another. I expected many biased opinions here, but I did not expect a bald-faced liar.

For those who are wondering why I did a quick 180 after NeverHappy's post, and then another after MtnBkr, here's why.

MtnBkr's post reads like every other Streem customer review I've read so far, i.e., glowingly positive. Since I initially didn't think NeverHappy was lying, for a while I didn't think those AudioReview posts could be trusted. But now it's quite obvious to me who can be trusted and who can't.

Like many others, there was a part of me that thought that Streem's prices and reviews were too good to be true. I was a bit skeptical. So I came here to see if anyone had heard both brands and could HONESTLY compare them.

Finding MtnBkr has put any of my previous suspicions regarding Streem to rest. Streem is a real, quality company. It is a paying sponsor of AudioReview. All customer reviews of their products that I've found so far (on several sites) are remarkably posititive.

The ONLY dissenting voice I've come across so far as to Streem's audio quality is NeverHappy. And his opinion is so far out of line with every other I've found that it's impossible he told the truth. MtnBkr was right in that regard. I now have all the "validation" I need. Streem will likely get my first audition.

That said, I know Axiom makes an excellent product, most likely superior to Streem's. Cost aside, I'm sure the Epic 80 would outperform the HT-808. The question that I had was, "which is the better value?" In that regard, from everything truthful I've read, the answer is "Streem" -- hands down.

Case closed.

Have you made the streem purchase yet?
Let us know what your biased opinion will be. I can't wait to hear you say that these are the best damn speakers you've owned after upgrading from your Cerwin Vega's.

MarkB, I try to ignore trolls. But your petulant, illogical accusations are sufficiently perverse that I cannot hold my tongue. You are WAY out of line here. It is plain that members of this forum are unable and/or unwilling to validate your opinions, so please excuse yourself unless you have something positive to offer.

If you'd take the time to read Streem's reviews on AudioReview, Audioholics and any other site you can find, you'll quickly learn my so-called "petulance" is dead-on accurate.

Since I seem to be the only person around here who has actually taken the time to do so, naturally I value my opinion on the subjects of Axiom vs. Streem and who lied vs. who didn't more than your own. Do your homework first, then throw some big words around. Not bass-ackwards.

Hi guys. I don't get here as much as I'd like, but I just wandered into this thread and ran across the discourse.

Quite a performance by this putz MarkB (or whatever other name he comes in with before or after this go around). Looks to me like his interest isn't in audio - just trolling. Given that conclusion (I'm sure to be followed by a clever, snappy reply from the antichrist himself) it would appear to be prudent to simply stop posting in response to his idiocy and move on. I, for one, won't revisit this thread.

...all of this is coming from a guy who himself has never heard Streems? This whole thread is just off the wall crazy.

Let's just go back to bashing ABBA. At least most of us can agree on that.
