Since I started reading reviews of speakers a bit over a year ago, I noticed how many reviews would say a product was as good as another costing many times it's own price. Since I hear this so much, I've been thinking that they must be comparing them to really crappy speakers that cost way more than they're worth. If paradigms, axioms, dahlquists, rockets, etc can all sound as good as speakers worth a lot more than them, don't they just set the new standard? They all make comparably priced speakers now that perform at similar levels. Do I have a point? or am I just being an ass? Seeing so many glowing reviews puts the fright into me that the reviews aren't as accurate as I would hope, and tend to overhype products. I so rarely see bad reviews online, that I don't know which brands are the speakers that cost way more that sound only as good as a much cheaper paradigm/axiom etc.
