They are having a sale on these and didn't know how they compare to the Axioms.
Swan Diva 6.1
Has anyone demoed these? Thoughts?

Thanks,

Jason

Only thing I know about them is they use HiVi drivers, I've never heard them though.

This is the response I received when asking comparison between the two from another site.

"Well, not to sound predictable, but they're not in the same class. The Swan are the more refined, lower-distortion, and significantly more powerful option. Plus you get bentwood cabinets and generally better quality throughout."

I doubt they can handle the power the M80s can. That and they do take more to power to reach a certain db level as their sensitivity rating is much lower, 89db compared to 95db for the M80s.

Who ever made that statement must be ignorant to the M80s specs.

When you look at the frequency response of the Swans they do not have a +/- to the 35Hz-20kHz they publish. How would one know the true frequency response.

The M80 on the other hand do: Freq Resp +/-3dB (Hz):
34 - 22kHz

Axiom gives an honest frequency response.

Agreed, if you look up the specs on the drivers on HiVis website, they certainly fall well short in the power dep't vs the M80s....."significantly more powerfull"??????

I'm wondering how an unpowered speaker could be "more powerful."

Hey, where'd the popcorn go?

Chinese, vertically-integrated marketing at its finest.

They make a dizzying array of products.

We had an interesting thread a few years ago.

They may, in fact, sound fine. It would not give me satisfaction to own them, because I perceive no personal craftsmanship in their manufacture or design.

This is the Axiom forum; what do you think we're going to say?

I was kind of hoping someone on the forum had heard both, and could give me a comparison of what they thought of Swans compared to the Axioms. Figured it was worth a shot with another ID company.

If you search for "swan" in the search function, clear out the From and To information, there are some old threads, but not much.
