I ordered Axioms just a few minutes ago.

Since I soon won't be able to enjoy Peter's system on a regular basis, it's time to start my own! I've decided to start out modestly, with a pair of M3's and stands from the factory outlet, which should arrive in about 5 weeks or so. Which gives me plenty of time to decide on a sub. I'd like to keep the sub budget around $400, so the two big contenders at the moment are the Hsu STF-2 and the SVS PB10ISD. I'm leaning towards the PB10. Anyone have any other ideas?

Adam, Congrats on your purchase! I've owned the M3's and they're great speakers, you'll love them.

The sub hunt can be a real task let me tell ya. I went through the trouble of going out of my way to hear various HSU and SVS subs, in the end, I chose the HSU VTF-3 MK2. Now I know that sub is a little out of your price range, but none of HSU subs will disappoint. None of SVS's will disappoint either for that matter. Just really boils down to your tastes, preferences, and what you plan to use it the most for.

Good luck, and keep up posted on what you decide.

Congratulations, Adam. I've been meaning to get those M3s for quite some time. Axiom muddied up the process by discontinuing the M40s!

As for the sub, I've only heard the Hsu's. Tried the VTF2 and VTF3, and enjoyed both tremendously. Don't think you can go wrong with either Hsu or SVS.

That's one thing I like about choosing between Hsu and SVS, I'm sure I'll be happy with either one. I'm leaning towards the SVS mainly because it goes deeper.

Good show, Adam! Perhaps an unanticipated consequence of Peter's relocation. I'd have suggested M22s plus the PB10, but I'm sure that you'll enjoy the M3s.

That was one of the reasons - I already know what the M22s sound like, so I thought I'd try the M3s. I think ultimately I wouldn't mind if the M22s sounded a little warmer, so maybe the M3s will be just right.

Yeah. I've become somewhat dubious about our results from the M50/M22 comparo, but it would be interesting to hear another speaker from that line.

Welcome to the family, Adam. I know what it's like to have a brother move away. Mine moved to Florida 20 years ago. Though we remain close (we talk by phone almost every week), and though he comes into town on business about 12 times a year, it just ain't quite the same as having him living in the same town.
