Well, while auditioning the Mini-Monitors at a local dealer I did something I really should not have done. I stepped into the Paradigm Reference room. The salesman had just installed a new Anthem amp and was listening to 7 channel music to see what he thought. I sat down and listened with him for a while. Let me tell you, that setup, Studio 100's, Studio 20's, Studio ADP, and a Servo 15 sounded incredible. So, I considered going for a pair of Studio speakers, mainly the 40's and an SVS sub for now and adding the other channels later. For those of you who have heard both, how would the Axiom M22TI compare against the Studio 40? Both would be paired with an SVS 25-31PCi. The Studio sounded pretty good to me, but of course the price would be almost double. I know audio is completely subjective to each persons ears, I just would like to know what you think. How would the Axioms perform? The Paradigms really slammed, would the Axioms be able to fare as well? The imaging sounded good on the Paradigms but from the reviews I read thats where the Axioms shine. I guess what caught my attention was the bass output by the Paradigm bookshelves. While auditioning other brands I never saw this as much before. However, as catching as it sounded in the store, Im not sure that I would want to trade bass output for clarity since they will be paired with a sub anyway. Anyway, let me know what you guys think. Man I really need to make a decision soon, my 3802 is just sitting here on the floor in its box pleading for me to give it some speakers.
