After reading numerous rave reviews about Axiom, I'm leaning toward getting Axiom speakers. I would love to audition the speakers before I actually order them online. I would hate to return them if I don't like them. There are just way too much hassle, not the mention the cost of shipping them back.

I am looking to build a 6.1 system with a pair of M60ti, VP150, QS8 for the three surround speakers, and EP500 sub.
I would love to hear the M60ti, VP150, and QS8 in action. I know that if I love the 5.1 system with those speakers, I would definitely love the additional QS8 even more.

Is there any kind Axiom owner out there that would let me listen to their system? I would drive to anywhere in the Seattle area or even to Portland, OR if I have to.

Thank you.

There's someone in Puyallup, but since he's not on the list, I'll let him volunteer himself.

I upgraded my speakers and no longer own the M60ti's or the VP150. Sorry.

Upgraded? I think you meant to say you changed brands.

Why changed brands ? His money, his choice, so can it not be an upgrade in his opinion ?

sirquack likes to beat around the bush instead of calling people out and out traitors.

Didn't say anything about money or choice. The word upgrading assumes the new version is better than the previous, which is not always true, at least coming from an IT prospective. Depending on what he replaced his Axioms with, others may debate the use of the word upgrade, notice he did not tell us the name of his new brand.

I'll place money on BOSE, ha ha

I believe it was a pair of Quads that replaced his Axioms.

Though it's been a while, we've had a problem with the word "upgrade" around here before. My Webster's has the definition of "upgrade" as "1. to promote to a more skilled job at higher pay" (I think we can safely ignore that particular definition), and "2. to raise in importance, value, esteem,etc."

I don't know about you, but to me, that definition leaves defining something as an "upgrade" in the subjective realm. IF someone considers his new speakers to be more important to him than his old, he's made an "upgrade." IF his new speakers cost more, i.e, are more valuable, then they, legitimately, could be considered an "upgrade."

But, even if the new speakers cost less than the old, if the owner "values" them more, holds them in higher esteem, i.e. likes them more, then they also, legitimately, could be considered an "upgrade."

So, it seems to me, based on the dictionary definition above, if the new speakers cost more, or the owner likes them more, he can reasonably call them an upgrade, even if others might not feel the same. YMMV
