If interested, for those who hadn't followed it before, start from the beginning. The latest starts on page 13, post #126.

I'm staying out of it for now...

I read through that thread lastnight....If there is one thing I hate about forums it is that everyone seems to be a self proclaimed expert and the amount of pure BS that ensues is simply astonishing.



Even more astonishing when these so-called "experts" proclaim their expertise never having even heard it, read only one review and and looked at a picture. Once again, it tells you something about the credibility(or lack) of the forum. A total waste of time.

agreed. Though guaranteed now there are some of those very same "experts" browsing THIS thread I bet.

I'm going to keep an eye on this topic and the one on avs...

I read in UHF that these were a partnership design, but an Axiom build.

Is that correct?

I would suppose that Ian cannot legally or ethically comment on them.

I'm sure the Axiom group will remain as neutral as their speakers.

It's really heated up over there on page 15+. A redundant argument is raging between a poster who owns & admires (above several other higher end stuff that he's had in the past) the Model Ts & an 'expert' that hasn't heard nor seen them but slags them anyway. It is typical of that whole thread from the start.

It's likely that there would be little or no argument had the Brystons been designed & built by another manufacturer. Some just can't stomach the fact that these units obviously can perform to a really high standard as is now being attested to & documented in several fine reviews by owners & pros alike.

Kudos to both companies for the outstanding expertise & extraordinary effort expended in bringing this fine project to fruition into this fickle & volatile segment of the marketplace.

Makes me proud to be a Canuck...

Hey Chess, just been busy, and not all that available for the board. I had a problem logging on, and just went about my business elsewhere.

Ex, yes, it is always interesting to watch the rants of opinionated people who profess to others that THEY know it all and can prove it, and THERE agendas are the ones that matter....

An open mind can lead to great experiences!

Absolute Audio in Calgary is a Bryston dealer. I've been meaning to get there and now I have another reason to check them out. It will be interesting to see the Model T's heard next to the likes of Monitor Audio, Opera, Audio Physics, Proac etc. I heard they have some anthony gallo's there too. cool

It's probably the closest I'll ever get to hear what Axioms would sound like directly compared to others. Should get a vague idea considering the tweeters are the same and the design philosophies are probably identical. Should be a fun trip.

FWIW, I urge others to get out there and listen to stuff. Finding a good dealer allowed me to see what I like, learn proper setup etc. Far more valuable than any forum opinion or magazine review imo. smile
