I'm here in Sacramento, CA. I cannot find a single person who has an Axiom speaker system to audition. Could you forum members give me a comparison to what other brand of speakers sound like the Axiom. I really like B&W 700 series. I hope they sound similar!

Thanks For all the advice....Stanmanh

There are a few comparison threads here. The M80s sound very close to the 703.

Did you post in the hearing things forum?

A double poster! so I will respond as I did in the other post, the Paradigm Studio 100s sound very similar to the M80s, IMO. I haven't heard B&Ws in awhile so I will not comment on that comparison.

If you're willing to drive an hour to Oakland, then I know of two people who might be willing to give you a listen. One has M3s, the other has M80s, M50s, QS4s, a VP100, an EP-350v3, and the Audiobytes with EP0 sub.

(Holy crap, that's a lot of Axiom stuff!)

I thought my M60's I had a few years ago were every bit as good as the B&W 703's for a lot less money. I now have the m80's which are even better. ;\)
