Kobe, please don't let us scare you off

The Axiom community is great, Axiom speakers are fabulous, and Axiom customer service is second to none.

Hope you give them a chance, you won't be disapointed...

Oops... wasn't trying to put Kobe down. I can see how it might have seemed I was. I was reacting to the story about Ashman. I didn't intend to belittle Kobe. Just reiterating that you have to filter and cross-reference much of what you see on the 'net. Sorry guys.

Guilty.

Sorry. I'll be nice, really.

I actually thought about just typing "bullsh*t" and hitting enter, but that didn't seem very enlightened or value-added.

Naw,

I actually have a pair of Axiom M22tis (as well as Athena As-B1s in a mismatched 4.0 setup right now).

I've been reading a lot of stuff John Ashman writes, like how the VP center speakers are trash, or his ears bleed from Axiom speakers. Rocket speakers, and even NHT is moving toward aluminum cone drivers, but he just says "he doesn't hear the same thing" in them compared to the Axioms. I'm not really sure what he's trying to say, I think he has been trying to imply the that Axiom drivers specifically have breakup modes below the 2.2KHz crossover (I think a while ago he said they were at 1.8KHz?) But I've read no literature or seen any graphs about that.

He also includes Thiel, B&W, Paradigm as well as Axiom to his list of " bright " speakers.Not bad company in my humble opinion.
