I have a few questions, and I'm looking for some help.I can barely sign in to a message board...
I'm setting up a new 5.1 system and I'm looking to save some money on probably the most important part of my system...Probably not that smart...Well here goes; I'll be matching a Sony 52' XBR 4, Sony Blue Ray BP350 model, 2 Axiom T2, T150,2SQ-8,and a DP-500 SUB and I'm struggling with the receiver. I love Axiom products but I'm in over my head as far as technology. I embarassed to say that I actually purchased a Sony STR-DG820 to push this set up. After asking around, I was basically laughed at by anybody in the know..It was returned today. I have a pretty large credit at Circuit City. I was thinking of getting the Denon 7.1 AVR 989..With 24 months no interest, $350 credit and 10% off, I'll pick it op for around $800 to $900...Any thoughts???

The Denon receivers are very popular and will do a great job driving Axiom speakers. The Denon manuals have a bit of a learning curve, but we can help you out.

The Axiom models I think your talking about are M2's, VP150, Qs8's, and EP500? How big is your room? You might want bigger left/right speakers instead of m2's. Also, you might consider the EP350 sub as well to save money.

I agree with Randy. Dial back the sub and dial up the mains. The Denons (that model in particular) are pretty good.

The T2's are the new in wall version of the on wall system. You are correct, they are the M2 but actually in the wall. They don't offer the W3 as of yet.The problem with the room is I have a very open floor plan. Nothing is sealed off, the room itself is average 16x18 but it flows into my whole first floor which is probably 40x60x7. The room has no real enclosed area. So I figured the DP500 would seal the room.

Ah, right, the T2s. Not much choice there, right now. I would still strongly consider the W22s in that application.

I'm trying to keep the clutter to a minimum. The wife is anti tech and feels we don't need any additional system. This is just unacceptable. I will mainly be using this set up for the day to day t.v. room and videos. What I'm trying should be half way decent for a newbie, correct?????

Oh, absolutely. You'll enjoy it. I wondered if there was some WAF involved here... ;\)

I'll double check everything before I pull the trigger... I wish they offered the M3 version for the in wall T series. I have those inside and out and they are what sold me on Axiom. I'll be a lifer with their products.. Maybe by the time I blow up the T2's they'll have come out with the newer version....Thanks for the input...

You could try doing the T150 for all of the main speakers.

Sounds like most of us.

This new system will be great. Is it the T2's or W2's as you mentioned the W3's not being available which they are, but T3's are not.
