Very compelling technology. Take a gander at these beauties! Guess who designed these speakers?

Does his first name begin with the initial A?

I'm honoured John, but no, it wasn't me. grin

Actually, I contacted Andrew specifically regarding the OMD-28's some weeks ago. I've never heard them(couldn't locate a pair) but they are some of the most beautifully crafted speakers imo. There's some really nice pics of the Bird's Eye Maple and the Rosewood 28's scattered around the web.

I do really like how they look. I wish I could hear a pair in person. I'm still excited by Andrew Welker being part of the Axiom team.

As well as being eye candy I bet these would be a very enjoyable listening experience - very spacious/excellent soundstage.

The A1400-8 feels all alone in its $4000 price bracket.

Andrew told me he had saved a pair of Black Piano finish 28's, I wonder if we could get him to give us a demo at the get together.

I can't help but notice those ugly grill post holes on the piano black finish though. Magnetic grills should come standard on a speaker like that!

I just don't want it to sound like we want a more expensive loudspeaker just to have a more expensive loudspeaker. Here's hoping any splurging would also come with a significant increase in performance.
