Whenever Axiom is mentioned over there, you can be sure that our old nemesis still immediately jumps in, steering people away from some really fine audio products. Not enough 'wow factor', which I guess means not enough 'colouration factor'.

Sad considering that the potential customer is in Canada that makes purchasing so easy:

Keep all this in perspective in that it is basically one or two clowns who have nothing positive to say about much of anything and in the process, feebly attempt to elevate their "alleged" audio/video snobbery by displaying that they know more about this stuff than anyone else.

Remember, Ian exposed these people for what they are and their credibility is basically non-existent and along with that I doubt Axiom's sales have suffered anyway. They just get too many positive reviews from other much more credible organizations.

I made my post. I am sure that GTPSuper will say something, but I tried not to put his name into the post or mention Axiom too much. I tried to give some level of advice that would benefit ANYONE looking into speaker lines. AVS people have STRONG biases towards whatever equipment that they happen to own, and some newer people (the original poster is up to a total of 4 posts at this time) on the site may not realize that without someone trying to come in and guide them along the crazy way.

Fun stat. GTPSuper has almost exactly 23% of his total post count at AVS where he specifically mentions Axiom in his post. There were some very positive things that he said back around 2009 when he joined AVS, and then he spent a bulk of that 23% to bash Axiom for reasons, as mentioned above, that have been pretty much debunked already. There are others there too, but he just keeps coming up a lot.

EDIT: Hey wow. There is a lot of Stupendous Man in this thread. That makes the thread itself stupendous! Woohoo!

Another Axiomite described him as GTpeasoupR in a PM, so I chuckle whenever his name comes up.

Sorry to interrupt your reign, Stupendous Man! Calvin and Hobbes was one of the highlights of my college newspaper. Fond memories. Carry on!

I own all of the books and have read them all, in order, despite the many newspaper readings as well. I could relate so much. Minus the tiger though.

It was always a treat to find a snowman strip. The things he did to those poor snowmen!
