Nathan, you can buy from factory outlet with confidence. Most of us who've done so have had difficulty finding the slight cosmetic blemishes said to be involved. Yes, I'd say that the Axioms are at least 26% better than those other brands.

ditto.

Do a search for "outlet" here on the forums and you'll see that many people can't even find a blemish when specifically looking for it!

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?

Thanks Again!
An Almost Axiom Audiophile

Nathan, you'll really enjoy those Axioms and I'd think that you should set them up and listen for a while before you decide what, if any, sub that you want. You mentioned the VP150 center a couple of times as being a sub, so possibly you meant the EP350. The EP500 has of course gotten tremendous reports from listeners, but the cost and shipping charges down to you are major factors. Not knowing what you have available locally at lower cost makes it difficult to make suggestions.
