The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police.

Gene is livid because he wants to listen to active LFRs but Ian won't let him.

Which sin is greater? Axiom's older cross-over on the $500 Algonquins or Revel's $15000 speakers with no listening window and sound power curves let alone those same curves that align like the active LFR's?

I'd put the $4200 M5s and a 500 against the $16K Revel Ultima Studio2 any day.

All the tubers are on crossovers at the moment. Thanx to New Record Days content.

Dellahollerstoomuch is a self promoting tool with an axe to grind.

He also likes to touch himself while looking in the mirror.

Admittedly I do not pay much attention to this guy and I do not know his/Axiom's history, but I did not take that as a shot at Axiom. He was just stating what we all know and have discussed on this board, speakers designed to price points have certain compromises. He indicates that early on.

One thing I did note, he did not seem a fan of crossovers that were minimalist, as in a single component. Yet perhaps the finest speaker lineup I have ever heard (Reference 3a, and the incredible Suprema) were built to that standard.


Regards,

Mike

Mike ... a red circle around Axiom with the line through it and the word "no" isn't taking a shot?

It's impossible to get the refined performance of a passive speaker like the M5 without a brilliantly-designed analog cross-over. Nirvana of course is a single driver that covers the entire audible range. No cross-over, digital or analog, would be needed.

I know the whole history and this is why I love Ian. After listening to so many of the v4 (with more coming), I love Ian even more and Andrew too. They are Canadian heroes! I can say, without any doubt, anyone who chooses to buy non-Axiom speakers is making mistakes on many fronts.

No, I don't think it is. I think perhaps he could have simply shown the crossover without mentioning the brand, but this does not phase me. He could have held up the Reference 3a lineup and that would have been fine as well.

I have been an Axiom owner since 1989, met Ian and toured the factory in 1990, owned many brands over the years - liking some of them better than Axiom and have said that on this board - but my current speakers are all Axiom. If someone does not like them, my view is you are entitled to your opinion. I get there is a general dislike for this gentleman, but I have no basis to judge him, as I don't pay attention to him.

As I taught my adult sons "It is ok to have an opinion, but not to be opinionated"

We have enough of those people on this board.....LOL


Regards,

Mike
