There's a poster on AVS who's looking for axiom owners to give their honest opinions of their centers.

I've tried my best without getting into posting over-the-top BS that is so prevalent out there.

I don't know what else to say...

Hard to say what his motives are. He may be looking for more than one opinion, possibly from someone outside the axiom forum who he perceives is not jaded in any way. I certainly wouldn't go to Emotiva's forum looking for suggestions about other brands of amps or expect to find negatives about their own products. If anyone has doubts they need to take advantage of the 30 day trial its the only way to be absolutely sure they will like it.

Why waste the energy trying to convince someone?

Does "honest" = "what he already believes?"

In the latest couple of posts, seems that he might be happy to try out the VP160.

BB: Not only do I do it to assist a poster, it also serves to provide others out there who care to read my posts, with credible info to provide a counterpoint to the mean-spirited, ridiculous suppositions & largely erroneous BS that has been floating around the net over the past 2 or 3 years. I don't relish doing it & I would rather take a nap; however, it needs to be done IMO...

Outside of this forum it is hard to get a realistic opinion of axiom products. I askesd similar questions at AVS years ago and it turned into a derailed argument between other posters. It was clear the anti axiom guy needed another hobby, or a girlfriend. grin

Its hard to have any opinion at AVS without someone getting personal. I started to get annoyed when people would offer personal accounts with products/setups and were accused of being "dumb" for liking what they heard....

I dont post there anymore. wink Tired of being questioned by those with a sig line 10 miles long and pics of their speakers setup horribly. Jokers......

Its good axiom is getting a fair shake at hometheater shack. Great writeup in a comparsson thread there. Another product, the Tannoys, ended up in my brothers home theater. The M80s were under consideration back when he was looking. No dealer demo was a dealbreaker for him.... The hometheatershack thread may have encouraged him make the effort to hear the axioms somehow.

Yup, as I mentioned before, HTS is a cut above the others IMO & have a lot of credibility with me.

They don't put up with any BS there...

Wouldn't really matter IMO.
His point, and the reason for the first post, was that few positive comments for axioms center channel speakers are on the AVS thread.
Worth while effort TAM.

I wonder who picked up the VP180HP? At $600 and change that was a good buy.
