Casey I agree. After discovering Axiom from the Audioholics reviews I also got a lot of good info here. So now if I have any questions this is where I go first. I know as Axiom owners we may have a little bias about our speakers, but I do think there is a lot of valuable experience here.

Do the other speaker manufacturer's have a forum, similar to this one? I've not heard that they did. I would also imagine that if they did, the owners of those particular speakers would have a bias towards the ones that they own, just the same.

I am sure there are others and practically speaking, you are totally correct in that the individual forums, such as this one, are going to be frequented by those that like the brand and of course, for the most part, own it. As I see it, the problem that has all too common existed on AVS is that nowhere else have I seen the viciousness and hatchet jobs along with a confrontational attitude towards other brands that the vast majority of time, the person doing the criticism, strangely enough, has probably never owned or even heard! It seems to attract a certain culture that, rather than provide meaningful discourse and information, prefers the above and I am not exactly sure why other than the fact that it seems the administrators obviously wish to have it that way.

AVS, the Jerry Springer of audio forums?

There's the Emotiva forums. They're actually pretty good from what little I've seen. I keep being tempted, then reminding myself I mostly use the system to watch TV shows and occasionally listen to music around 70dB...

Polk has forums as well.

I liken this place to a nice quiet pub while AVS is a large, raucous dance club.

AVS to me seems more like the big battle scene in Gangs of New York

LOL. I just watched that movie again this week. Seems the whole town was blown up after the navy kicked in.

Ascend has their own forum and there is Chase Home Theater, not to mention we all know av123 used to have their own.
