Thanks to all the advice. I have just ordered the:
Mains - M60Ti FO Black Oak
Centre - VP150 FO Black Oak
Surrounds - QS8 FO Black Oak
I went for the M60’s over the M80’s as I just don’t want to have any issues driving 4 ohm speakers with the Yami 2600 all the way down here in Oz (actually I’d love to play with more gear but the wife would kill me!)
I think the clincher for me the comments / reviews on the Axiom appeared to suit my preference for accurate, open and transparent sound when reviewing the likes of the Focal.JMlab Chorus series (Vs to me the closed, muddied B&W sound).
I went for the Factory Outlet options to offset some of the shipping/tax costs so now I have to wait around 10 weeks. To keep me entertained while I wait, what are some good options for Subs for this set up?
1) Axiom quoted the VP150, but are there others I should consider from makers like Velodyne?
2) Are subs like the EP500 worth “twice” the price for a set up like mine or the VP150 style quite acceptable?
3) Should I wait till I’ve received and auditioned my speakers?
