About Us

Philosophy of Axisvoicebox

On a technical level, we also take the greatest pride in the products we design. Axis speakers exhibit superlative craftsmanship with exceptional build quality all in the service of music. We believe Axis loudspeakers are accurate instruments with a slavish dedication to realistic music reproduction… and reviewers and critics around the world wholeheartedly agree.

Axis Loudspeakers products encompass the love of music and fervent passion of the designers. John Reilly and Brad Serhan have skilfully voiced the speakers to satisfy the most demanding listener – whether audiophile, music lover or professional sound engineer.

We know that, when it comes to audio purchasing, passion and an individual’s discernment play a major role. This is the reason we design and manufacture not to a price but to a standard. With this goal we can be confident that we’re offering the best we can achieve under a given construct and that the product will reflect the best possible performance and build quality.

Our Designers

  • John Reilly

    A self-taught drummer since the age of nine, John Reilly’s musical curiosity arose from the influence of his father who played steel guitar in a Hawaiian band. John’s love of music led him to a long career in the audio industry.

  • He has had successful stints in retail and was a partner in a major Australian audio distributor which represented a number of global brands some of which included Bose, Acoustic Research, McIntosh, Velodyne and many more.

    John started Axis Loudspeakers and evolved the product range to include several high quality stereo models and a number of speakers and subwoofers designed for home theatre applications. He is extremely proud of the fact that all models offered by Axis at the time were recipients of Awards for excellence.

    After a hiatus, John has returned to his passion: designing and building the best possible loudspeakers within his strict quality criterion. Having always valued music over the equipment, John nevertheless believes that the Axis VoiceBox S and VoiceBox B exceed his mandate of pure excellence in music reproduction.  

  • Brad Serhan

    In 1984 Brad Serhan founded Orpheus Loudspeakers a company that, based on high performance yet affordable products, grew to become one of the leading speaker manufacturers in Australia.

    After selling Orpheus Loudspeakers, Serhan has been in high demand as a consulting and freelance designer to a number of high profile Australian manufacturers and has been responsible for several highly successful designs – both critically and commercially.

    Now, Serhan brings his comprehensive experience and highly-tuned engineering skills to Axis Loudspeakers.

Testimonials

Early test in my reference rig have shown a seemless crossover and blending between ribbon and main driver, stunning imaging accuracy and dynamic output.

Edgar Kramer - Six moons

To me the AXIS are among the best bookshelf speakers I have heard at any price. Musically adept, wonderfully rich and harmonically honest. Exceptional value for money.

Leon Periera - Audio Video Singapore

The little loudspeakers have an uncanny act of being able to float a convincing sonic picture beyond their compact cabinets. The vocals hang with tremendous poise and natural sounding authority.

Nic Tatham - Audio Video Lifestyle Aust.

The Voice excels at image specificity, as a matter of fact, it may be best I have heard in this category for speakers of its size and price...the presentation is essentially distortion free
