If you do not have a Web page showcasing your set-up, how about just posting some pics?

I just went to you web site. It looks great. Are you created all these yourself? Is it difficult to construct such a site? I'm interested to do one similiar. Can you PM me how to start if you have time?

Considering about the thread, I think we don't have to take serious consideration about the spelling (to the benefit of the doubt), we all have typing mistakes. This is a free world and we respect individuals to voice their opinions. It's never easy to compare an apple with an orange but people like to do this anyway. I think most of us are 'smart' enough to read, digest the information, and have our own judgement. If 'one' or 'few' speakers are so 'good', then why there are still so many speaker manufacturers around.

There are always 'better' speakers with 'better' price outside. If we keep chasing, we won't be enjoying the music. We'll become the slave of 'technology' and much concern on how others see us and lead us to a never ending black hole.

Life is short, as long as you're happy and not doing any harm to others, then why bother ?

I, too, just checked out your web site, Randy. Very nice indeed. Good looking, and easy to read.

Enjoyed your poll on "famous movie lines." Of those you listed, I voted for "I'll have what she's having" from When Harry Met Sally. Great line delivered by the real Mother of the movie's director (Rob Reiner), which makes her Carl Reiner's wife.

You must be a relatively young man. My all time favorite movie line is the last line of Casablanca (1942). "Louis (pronounced "Louie")! I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." To those unfamiliar with the movie, it probably isn't all that striking. But, if you watch the movie, and notice the intricate, and uncertain relationship between Louis and Rick, it is the most perfect and delightful ending line since "Frankly Scarlett, I don't give a damn" which is another pretty good ending line.

Just realized that you and nickbuol are both in Des Moines. Must be nice to have a fellow Axiom owner, and forum member in the same town. There's an Axiom owner about 40 miles from me, in a far Eastern suburb of Cleveland, but he's not a forum participant.

I think that the original poster is entitled to his opinion, but certainly does not score points for being objective in his review, or presentation. He does not provide any real details, and according to the thread he participated in (as referenced by JohnK) seems to rely more on his "friends" and their opinions.

I can accept that someone believes they are good or bad....

I agree that there are better speakers than Axiom - I own a set. However the world of audio is not precise in that you can categorically state Mfg'er A is #1, and Mfg'er B is #2..... as an fyi, I listened to Krell, and bought the Simaudio Moon - it was much better IMHO. 2x6 mentions Reference 3a as "bookshelf", but they are the best speaker I have ever heard, or owned - with the possible exception of the Castle Winchesters....again IMHO.

The poster appears intent on "stirring the pot".....

Thanks Jack, well if you call 37 young Heck I just got a notice about my 20th High School reunion next year, that is sad... Thanks about the website, actually it is from a free online web hosting company. You are a little limited on what you can do, but heck it is free. Yep Nick and I live in the Des Moines area, I actually live in a small suburb south of Des Moines, and Nick lives in and eastern suburb (wrong side of the tracks)

I do love old movies, and am familiar with the ones you mention. I also love older decades of music (pre 60's) My dad was a professional singer back in the 50's and early 60's. He actually was on Ed Sullivan in 59 with the Army Entertainment Show, he was friends with Steve Lawrence...Randy

I agree Randy - very nice site. Wish I had the capacity/knowledge to do a site. Maybe when I retire.

By the way, Jack calls EVERYTHING young, so 37 isn't in the twilight zone. Matter of fact, he's got ties that are older than you are.

The site I used is Freewebs.com it is very simple to use, and they have an online website created tool, that people with no experience can use to get started easily. I do have experience with html and other web design software's, but I just wanted something I could whip up real fast...

And what, pray tell, is "macro-dynamic detail"? I'll tyr to dissect the phrase. Macro means large, and stands in opposition to micro. Dynamic means changing, and stands in opposition to static. So macro-dynamic must mean "changes on a large scale." Taken all together, the phrase "macro-dymanic detail" must mean something that indicates a change, be it in volume, or tone.

So, are you telling me that you were unable to even hear the Axioms? Because even a $1 paper-cone driver wired to an amp via paperclips would we capable of "macro-dynamic detail."

I guess the point I'm trying ot make is you should try to avoid idiotic buzzwords. They make no sense whatsoever.

I had Macro and Micro Economics in college, but I must have slept through the Macro Dynamics class, or been at the bars, as I don't recall that course.
