Hey guys,

I am curious if anyone knows why Axiom resells Sherwood as opposed to say Marantz or Anthem or some other receiver? I don't know much about Sherwood and would like to get more detail if anyone has anything to say.

Thanks!

IMO there are better alternatives than what Axiom sells for receivers such as offerings from Denon and Onkyo. I would even consider Yamaha and Pioneer offerings over them.

Hi,

Axiom decided a few years back to offer Newcastle by Sherwood for mainly four good reasons:
- The Newcastle products could power the Axiom M80 flagship model with ease.
- The built quality was above average.
- The sound quality was superior.
- The warranty was a 3 year period.

i think anthem would be to expensive of a product for most of axioms customer base.

from what i have seen around here, most people have Denon, Onkyo, and a few other major manufactures. I personally think that Denon would have been a much better brand for them to offer, but that it just me.


another part I'm sure is how much product they would have been required to stock, in-order to be a re-seller? it wouldn't make much since for them to have to stock 50-100k$ in product, as they probably wouldn't sell that much.

I have nothing against Sherwood Newcastle... or Denon, or Onkyo, but I'm not sure I see why it's necessary for Axiom to offer anything here that they don't make themselves. It must make some kind of sense or they'd discontinue offering them, but I have trouble seeing how it's worthwhile, at least as it's done right now.

Yeah, I'm just not sure how big of a slice of Axiom's consumer base that represents. Axioms are a good value, but they're not cheap, so you'd think most people buying them would be into the hobby enough to chase down the other parts of their system with vigor. I realize there are people with money to blow out there who are going to avoid whatever hassles they can, but yeah, I'm just wondering if it's really enough to make it worthwhile. Must be.

I think Dakkon is right. Plus why shouldn't Axiom have additional cash streams.

I feel Marantz is a great pair with the Axiom M60s and below (considering the budget people who spend ~1000 on stereo pair would most likely have). In reality there is alot of good "mid-ranged" receiers out there that could pair well with the Axioms I believe. I have never heard a Sherwood personally, but I was also curious why they were resold here.

Hi,

There are several good a/v receiver brands which Axiom could be an authorized online dealer for. However, to be one and to remain one you need to respect their strict guide line for pricing. As you all know, most brands can be bought at prices way below the ones of the guide line. People buy online to save dollars, searching for the best deals and lowest prices. The reality is that people will buy it elsewhere if it can be bought at a cheaper price. It was often the case with Newcastle products which are not as widely available as the more popular brands.
