If the detail is transparent, then we really have transparency. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know my experience listening to HDCDs played back on 16 bit decoders agrees with your own - thin sounding bass to be sure. I have also had bad luck with some dual layer (SACD/Redbook) disc as well.

re: Dennis (Tharkun)'s system -- don't forget the stack of big-ass Halo power amps that keep the voice coils glowing gently. Dennis also did some very nice carpentry and design for the cabinets and shelves that house everything. Here's a link to the site :

http://www.numenor.org/haxiom.html

Pmbuko and kcarlyle have visited Dennis, heard the system, and were duly impressed. Apparently it was too heavy to carry out the door (even in 10 or more trips) so they left it there.

Yeah, we didn't bring the right vehicle for it. If we'd come in the station wagon(s) we could have had some reeeally nice setups. Although we'd probably be fighting over who got the QS8s, EP600, and the 5th M80.

BTW sorry about mis-spelling your name. I realized after the 15 minute edit limit had passed...

I thought EP600's came with wheels. Did you not have a trailer hitch ?

Wow, this seems to be a very popular thread - so many post in less than a day I haven't visited Axiom boards.

Great review Oz, very professional!! Great you have the patience to wait and audition so many other speakers. I didn't, I ordered my M60s same Sunday evening after I auditioned them at captPikard's, and I am not sorry. However, I auditioned a few other speakers such the usual ones in BB and CC and Tweeters, B&W 6xx, 7xx, and 8xx series, Boston Ac., and Paradigm studio reference 100 V3.

Very glad you did not notice the sibilance, very important. It may be some recordings, but I have ended up to believe that in my case is my room accoustics to blame (large window area, openings to kitchen and foyer, walls, etc).

Good luck with your decision, and please, keep us posted.

Nah, for some reason Peter hasn't put one on his Maxima. Can't think why not. No worries on the name, it's been worse. Usually is, on the phone.

Well I'm about done. It's getting hard not to pull the trigger. But I must hear the Spendor first. I heard so many good things about them. It's hard to explain I almost have a bias and I've never even heard them. But I don't blame you for ordering the 60's right after hearing them. All the way home after listening to Bill'y I kept saying "I'm gonna do it" Oh just go ahead and order them what are you waiting for?"

I would be very interested in your impressions of the 60's versus the Paradigm 100's if you get a chance. I was very impressed with the 100's and if I had a check book or charge card at the time I would have bought them on the spot. Many have commented on my patience and how do I do it. Well my secret is out . When I go to hear a speaker I leave the credit cards and check book at home
Later,
oz
