"From the very first firefight, I was immersed in incredibly intense gunfire and explosions that took place all around me. . . Sounds like rustling leaves, rain, flowing water and flapping wings literally occurred all around the room as I watched. I have watched this series several times and until now, never realized what a difference the experience could be with better audio."

"The entire Epic 80 system is exceptionally clear and capable of impressive dynamic range. The EP500 can play gut wrenchingly deep and with great authority. I wonít bother to wax poetic about the Epic 80 system Ė because frankly, your ears will do that well enough once you hear them. Should you be in the market for a truly excellent speaker system, I think that all of Axiomís products deserve a very strong look. Highly Recommended."

" . . .they sound smooth, full, rich and detailed. Musical instruments were clearly distinct and the ebb and flow of the music drew me into the sound the way only a good speaker can. . . .Small speakers can sound kind of thin when played in large, open areas, but when I cranked the Algonquins up, the bass came up nicely with the volume, producing a full, satisfying sound belying their size, even without a subwoofer." 
-- Don Lindich, www.soundadviceblog.com

 

"I set the Algonquins 25 feet apart and stepped back, and back, and back. Even 100 feet away, these speakers presented an incredibly wide and deep soundfield."

"On a sticky, suffocating Sunday morning, the bluegrass gospel of Alison Krauss and the Cox Family's 1994 collaboration "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow" filled the Church of The Back Yard. The congregation soon grew, as a neighbor walked over and asked, somewhat puzzled by the outdoor concert, 'Is that Alison Krauss?' The sound is so good, you'll keep pumping up the volume."

We tested this system from every angle - literally and metaphorically - and we had a near impossible time exposing a flaw.

"On top of that, the LFR-1100s' massive soundstage and vibrant power also make them the perfect system for large gatherings of folks who actually care about the sound - no more fighting over that sweet spot. (Audiophile party anyone?) If you're looking to step into a real home hi-fi system, we think purchasing the Axiom LFR-1100 and ADA-1500-4 is an investment you will never regret."

"The first thing that was apparent about the sound of the LFR1100 was its seemingly limitless dynamics and ability to play loudly with no hint of strain. Iíve had several speakers in my system that Iíve described as having exceptional power-handling characteristics, but the LFR1100 was the best in that regard by a wide margin. It could coast along at volume levels that, with most speakers of its size and price, would have had me worrying about damaging the drivers. . . But my timidity was probably misguided -- even at these insane levels, the sound was still crystal clear, without any of the compression or harshness associated with driving speakers past their limits.

". . .their big, open sound, exceptional clarity, and massive dynamics are astonishing for a speaker of this size and price."

"a sophisticated huge soundstage with pronounced layering and good image focus in a large listening window that remained stable over both width and height. . . . Mr. Colquhoun and Mr. Welker have produced a speaker system which goes for refinement in tonal balance, very wide dynamic range and low distortion. Add to that a well-focused immense soundstage and a slight softening in transient behavior and one remains outside the extreme transparency camp to be firmly on the musical enjoyment side. The big Axiom plays it big, brawny and engaging."

"excellent dispersion... For discrete surround, such as Dolby Digital or DTS, the QS-8 will offer a combination of good rear spatial accuracy and a nice enveloping ambient field. It is, I must say, a fine feat of engineering in a bipolar speaker system."
