Congrats, those Energy's do sound nice, It has been awhile since I listened to a set but I do remember thinking they were very nice just over priced;\) but you found a way around that - well almost.

The most important part is that you found a set you like. I did notice that some one posted on the board today from Regina, maybe you could still hear some Axioms just to compare, thats the fun part about the hobby.

Yeah, speaker envy never ends.




That's right--I said speaker envy.

Ayan,

Congratulations. I bet they sound mellow. A cooler mid-range relative to the bass can result in the three-dimensionality that you are hearing. What happens to that effect when you turn the bass down and the treble up with your tone controls?

Terrific, Ayan! Glad you found something at an acceptable price that makes you happy. That's what it's all about. \:\)

By all means stick around and contribute to the degree with which you're comfortable. Happy to have you here. If you ever have any questions or need any help, don't hesitate to ask.

Tex, this sparked a memory of an old review I wrote up but never posted, where I tried to describe this effect. I think with some speakers, there is a definite point of origin where the sound comes from. It's like stretching a sheet between the speakers and all sound starts and exists from that point forward. I don't know if this can be best described as a flat soundstage, which I don't think is entirely accurate, but more of an "in your face" sound. This is not necessarily an aggressive sound, but a sound field that only moves forward--meaning there is no area behind the speakers filled with sound.

Now, there are speakers that are described as being able to disappear in the room. I had some bookshelf speakers that did this and it really enhanced the spaciousness of the presentation. Looking at my notes, I think I was trying to tie this phenomenon in with a laid back sound signature. I'm not convinced this is the sole reason for it, but I think it certainly is a factor along with crossover design, cabinet shape and size. . .

Well, now I'm stuck again. This is where my written notes bogged down because I could not reason out why the two speakers I was comparing sounded so tonally similar yet had different presentations.

Congrats on the new Speakers. I am also from regina and also would like to demo an M80, VP150, QS8 system. I think I might pull the trigger on them and try the in home demo when the time comes but still cant hurt to hear them before I do.
