I just want everyone to know that the photo above is staged and, yes, I am smelling a cable.




In case anyone was wondering.





Now back to the thread.

Chess told me to look like I was doing something important.

The cables weren't going to smell themselves.

So how does that passive sub sound??? I'd be happy to beta test in a non-lab setting... wink

How about an integrated tube amp(s) that is voiced to perfectly match the Axiom speakers? Even a tube/ss hybrid like the Anthem Integrated 225. Maybe a partnership with Anthem since Sonic Frontiers is also a Canadian company? With their Anthem line they also have the same attitude as Axiom of providing equipment that delivers performance far beyond the price point. We know that some amps and speakers achieve a perfect synergy that makes them perform together far beyond how they perform with other components. Having an integrated amp with that synergy with Axiom speakers designed in would be a tremendous value add.

Nice to see that Axiom, through these forums, is onboard the "Clue Train" http://www.cluetrain.com/book/

I don't want to be a buzzkill or anything, and you may well be right. But I don't know about asserting this as Accepted Truth without some science.

I think this might be more true for tube amps as each one does have a slightly different tone, but SS amps are pretty much the same at least any of the ones I have tested.

My Dad has been running an older Yamaha preamp and amp combo with a set of Infinity floor standers. It was a great sounding, if a little bass heavy, system. The Yamaha he was running was powerful and clean. A few weeks ago he bought some Klipsch Forte II's and a McIntosh preamp and amp. He had the speakers a few days before the amp so he tried them with the Yamaha and didn't like the sound at all. He said it was unpleasant and kind of harsh. When he hooked up the McIntosh he loved it with the Klipsch. He said he's done. Everything but the McIntosh and Forte II's is going on CL. Two solid state amps with similar power output and completely different sounds through the same speakers because the Yamaha was designed to run as cleanly as possible while the McIntosh was designed to sound like the McIntosh tube amps.

Yes, there are those SS amps that are designed with a tube sound but they are not the norm.
