High Fidelity: Axiom offers affordable audiophile speakers

Most audiophiles are faced with budgets that make owning many company’s “reference” and “flagship” components just a dream. Such entry usually requires $5,000 — often much more — to sit at the head of the audio table, regardless of whether you’re lusting after a top-end turntable, loudspeaker, amplifier or even speaker cables and interconnects. Therefore, when a manufacturer’s zenith product can be had for less than $1,400, I want to know more, particularly when that product happens to be a pair of floorstanding loudspeakers.
