If you weren't getting your Axioms what would you get instead?

Are we talking about a world where money grows on trees? If that's the case I would be getting something from Revel.

I don`t think I could afford what I want in terms of sound. I would love something like the Paradigm Sig. 8 or the newer top end PSB speakers. Even those are out of my range.

I probably would have ended up hunting down something used.

It was Paradigm or PSB for me too. It was Axiom's value for the dollar that helped me make my decision.

The audio dealer that I bought my Paradigm Monitor 9s from had a pair of Revel Ultima Studios in their high-end showroom. I asked to listen to them. They were fantastic.

Really though. After reading everything I could get my eyes on about Revel, and just wondering what body parts I could sell to afford set from any of their ranges. I started seeing mentions of Axiom. It impressed me how many of their design philosophies were the same, except where Revel spared no expense to deliver a design well into the realm of diminishing returns, it seems that Axiom took the more pragmatic approach.

We see what I ended up buying. And I still have all my organs.

I was looking at Bose, just going from a HTIB. I listened to the Bose Acoustimas 10 in a store and didn't like them. They sounded shrill and rasping to my ears. So, I got online and googled for audiophile speakers. Axiom Audio is the first one that came up, that I clicked on anyway. The price was higher that I was willing to pay at the time. I was also building a new PC and was looking for high(er) end speakers than what I had. Almost bought the Audiobytes, but I already spent $2k on it and decided to just live with what I already had. Later I ordered a pair of bookshelf M22 v2 and was satisfied with their sound. Then purchased the on-wall version and was not so satisfied. I wish I had returned them, but it took me much too long to make up my mind about them. I will be buying more Axiom speakers, but the bookshelf and/or tower versions only.
