Head to Head compare...Just asking don't attack me Edit Reply





Alright, not looking to get flamed, or create a mass pounding, BUT? Has anyone ever compared the Axioms to the Fluance line? I priced out two setups one with an Axiom line and one witha Fluance line. Also added an SVS sub to both setups. The Axioms come in at almost 600.00 more give or take. Mostly more. This is to be my FIRST HT system. I have been here asking around and reading ALOT! But, I am cautious in the spending. I have not spent since buying my first Infinity Infintessimal system 11+ years ago. I was first considering the M22's then leery due to the fact I would require stands, with two kids, ah, shying away. Then I thought the M50's, not a lot of good heard here. The M60's may be a bit high for me. Then the center, the VP100 is liked/disliked. Justify in the purchase of the 150? Then the Q8's Q4 debate. All I know is that I received a YAMAHA RX-V2400 as a gift, and now it needs some brothers and sisters to round out the HT family. Again room size is 14 x 13. Seating is 10'8" away from TV, center channel and fronts. I know this is a biased, rightfully so, forum, but I like a little controversy to get creative juices flowing.

Alright fire away at me, I can take it. Why else would I ask!! No matter what I do need....2 Fronts...Center...surounds...sub. My Infinity sub is not working correctly so I would need to replace. As are 1 of my original Infinity satellite speakers. No help there. What do the many minds here think!!


:confused:

Rockets and Ascend Acoustics are two more good net-direct speaker companies that have offerings in your price range. I have not heard Fluance.


Search this board for the la listening sessions. I group of enthusiasts from this forum got together Axioms, Rockets, and Ascends for a net-direct budget shootout. It would be a good place to read different folks takes on the speakers.


Also, Axiom has a forum at their site as does Rockets at ********** and Ascend aficionados have started a devoted site at ascendforum.com. All of these boards have good helpful communities to learn from and get your questions answered at.


I am an Ascend owner.


edit: Oops just reread and realized that you want floorstanders. Stands can be weighed down and speakers attached with blu-tack , velcro, or those plastic tie-down strips.

Paradigm has a new series of "Monitors" that are wall mountable. I tried to find a link with price informations....no luck at all. I am a proud Paradigm owner and I consider them to be one of the better "bang-per-buck" speakers available. You might check your local vendors for information on these speakers. Sorry that I cannot give even a ball-park figure for pricing.
