DBT over on the Axiom forum has shown that its hard to tell apart and M22 with subwoofer and M80 tower. I ran M22 and SVS subwoofers so I have a pretty good idea of the Axiom sound as well as the M2 and VP150 and this was all side by side with various other brands with Arx amongst them.
You own a sat and subwoofer setup and no towers right? So why are you interested in M80s vs A5s? You haven't even heard a single Arx model but yet challenging my post. If anyone out there has any experience with Axiom and Arx it would be me but yet your saying i'm wrong? I ran Arx and Axiom together for several months before practically giving the Axioms away.
You love Axiom we get that but you have zero basis to challenge anyones subjective opinion when you've never taken the time to properly demo (AB comparison) speakers in your own home.
Its just an excuse. When someone is in Canada he automatically pulls the excuse "its too expensive to buy from the States, so just get Axiom". I only paid $850 for my A5s but if I paid double that price I would still be happy.
