Welcome to the M80 club Bob! I hope you like them, considering the amount of time you spent on the net looking for speakers. I think you will. \:\)

Thanks everyone. The outlet store could take me up to 4 weeks before I get them. I was going to go for the whole pkg. but I'll have to wait.

I listened to a few speakers.
A Polk surround sound that I thought was pretty good for a small system
Polk Towers
JBL Towers
Klipsch RF82
PBS Imagine
Paradigm Studio 60's
Paradigm Millenia 300

I would have liked to check out some more but it seems like anything I would have liked would have been "more" out of my price range than I am already.

I am grateful for all the forums that are on the internet. Some aren't as helpful as others. I realize ie's best to hear every speaker for yourself as everyone has different tastes and opinions. I think after hearing a few and listening to those that are willing to describe their impressions on what they have heard that you can get a pretty good idea of how those that you haven't heard might sound.
I also know that any forum that is dedicated to a particular brand will be somewhat partial but I think that this particular forum has been rather kind to many of the competition. This shows a level of personal integrity and maturity. (well some of you aren't THAT mature )
I have really enjoyed my time here and hope that I enjoy my speakers at least half as much!

Hey Bob, keep in mind you will get them the average date of all the speakers, not the longest speaker time.

Based on our upcoming production schedules and our current order backlog for Factory Seconds, the "wait time" below lists when you should expect delivery on the model of your choice. Click to pre-order and you're guaranteed the product of your choice!

Not sure what you are saying though.

Just glanced through your website. Found it interesting that someone with that layout could probably go for just about any speaker that I could never afford and you went with Axiom. Seems to say something.

Sometimes you get it faster than they say you will, basically.

Don't always trust what you read. Those of us that have been around these parts a long time now that normally you get the speakers much sooner than the longest lead time. As I said, if you average the times, that is about when you'll get them in most situations.

A lot of people have a nicer setup than I do, I refinished the basement myself it took 2 years. \:\) I charged my speakers on a credit card, I only wish I could pay cash like most. The only reason we have this house is because we purchased our first house back in early 92 when things were appreciating at astronomical rates, sold it 10years later and had 60K in equity. Otherwise, we would not have been able to build this house. Cost around 200K to build and would be worth 1/2 Mil in California. \:\)

Hey Bob, how did the PSB Imagines sound? The few reviews that are out really pump them up. Also, what do the Millenias sound like compared to the Studio 60?
