I think she likes the speakers a lot. She doesn't really listen to that much music on them though... She loves them for HT.

I am def. not in the country, but I think I am going to get another ep500 sometime in the comming months.

I had a problem with my first ep500 (slight rattle) so they sent me a driver, then they sent me an amp... and ultimately they ended up sending me a whole new ep500 so I had a couple of days to play with 'em both and really liked it.
I sent back the amp and the first sub, but they let me keep the driver.

I called axiom and I can get an ep500 amp and an enclosure for like $930 (or maybe it was $970 I forget). I just need to rig up the internal wiring or ask them how much that would cost. Either way I could save a couple hundred since I have a driver already... I was just thinking that if I added a GC on top of that It would be CHEAP.

Are you more on the music side? I have been doing a lot more HT than music on my Axioms as I spend a lot of time in my office on the other side of the house... which is why I'm looking at the PC speakers!

The EP500 idea sounds cool, and like you said cheap, esp. if you can get a referral GC \:\)

Probably 70% HT and gaming and 30% music actually. I don't really use the sub for music so the additional sub would be for HT.

I am in no rush to buy another sub though (one ep500 works fine ;\) ).. It's just something I would like to have eventually.

I think next on the list will be a bluray player. I have considered getting a different amplifer, (mono blocks or a 2 channel amp for the M80's... or perhaps an axiom amp.) That would be a year or 2 down the road though as my denon 3808 really is doing a great job driving everything.

Cool, after the Blu-ray player, I'd say something to drive the M80's would make you real happy. Since you don't like to use the sub while listening to music, a hefty 2 channel amp will really help out the lows on the M80's. It's nice to hear that your Denon drives them well regardless.
