Just wanted to add, after looking at the photos again I am just truly impressed with the setup, just beautiful.

Great looking room!

I thought you were buying the Axioms for the studio, though?


Thank you. Sorry for the confusion, they aren't for the studio, we've moved the sales room inside the house to the livingroom. So the livingroom will double as our HT, and sales room.

Very nice. It must be so nice to be able to walk behind all of your equipment any time you like.



Absolutely! The reason I did it this way is because in my old house my HT was in the basement. And the wall the tv was against had a storage area behind it. Well when I bought my 65 inch rear projection I had the choice of buying a HT cabinet and putting it up like everyone else was doing, or doing something different. I opted to build a cabinet on my own, cut a hole in the wall over top of the tv, and put all the electronics in it. This saved me a ton of money, and ultimately turned out to be 100 times better than having to mess with all the connections in a traditional HT cabinet... pulling it out from the wall, or trying to squeeze yourself behind it everytime you need to make an ajustment. I would simply walk around to the storage area, and mess with the connections from the back.

I fell in love with the ability to do this that when I moved in with Amy and we decided to turn her livingroom into a sales/HT room, I wanted to have the same set-up. The closet was the only way to achieve this. And to be honest, when I first ran it past her I think she thought I was crazy! It really did sound a little odd to engineer a room to take space out of it and cause all those different angles. But she was a trooper and gave me creative control, and she is very pleased with the results.

I sure will. Trust me I'm very curious about it myself. I'm sure it will be interesting to see what happens.

Well thank you, and thank everyone for the compliments. I am so eager to get the Axioms in there so I can post up pictures of the finished product... well, that may not be the ONLY reason I can't wait to get my speakers... but it's certainly one of them!

They're here, they're here, they're here!!!


And I must say, they are HEAVY!!! All I've done so far is unwrap one QS8, & let me tell you, those little suckers feel like they're made out of solid lead!

Pics will come when as I get them set-up!

If you think they're heavy now, just wait until you're mounting them and have to put your faith in the bracket. Don't worry. Mine haven't fallen yet. ;\)

Ok snag #1 (uuuugggg), the volume control knob on the EP800 seems to have broken off somehow? I really don't understand how it could have happened unless it was during packing? Because the boxs were in great shape, & they were double boxed, well wrapped, etc... But when I opened the box, flipped it upside down & pulled it up, a little gold knob came rolling out! \:\(

At first I thought maybe they ship then unattatched so they wouldn't get broken off during packing/unpacking & shipping. But after closer inspection it seems to have been sheared off at some point. All the other knobs & switches are fine, its just the volume.

Which is no biggie, I can cut a little slit in the broken off piece, & turn it with a screwdriver no problem. It just detracts from the whole, "everythings brand new & perfect" feeling you get, ya know?

Guess I need to get them to send me a 'new' new knob now! :P

Funny you said that. Because I had already bought a pair of mounting brackets just like the one's I had mounted my Cambridge Soundwork surround speakers with. When I lifted the QS8 out of the box I immediately knew there was no way those guys would be up to the task! Then I saw the stock mounting brackets (had no clue those came included).

Yes these little guys are not anemic in any way!
