OKAY, Life was much simpler before I found this site...(when I thought bose was all there was.) the problem is, I've HEARD the 301's, now I am reading about the axiom's and you guy's have given me some good reviews on the paradigms. Which way do I turn now? I realize I can test drive the axioms, but I'd really like to compare vs. the monitors or the focus (my wife'd gut me if i blew 1500.00 just to test three sets of speakers.)
