Hi,

I'm new on this forum and new to the world of home theater as well. I already bought the components of my fisrt home theater and I am starting to worry if I bought the right equipment. Considering the list of things I bought, will I encounter problems or should these components work well together. I know this might sound as a beginer's question (and so am I), but I am really starting to worry.

Axiom Epic 80-350
Samsung HL-67A750
Sony PS3
Pioneer VSX-9130THX

Best regards.

Relax, hook it all up and enjoy. Wait, take and post pictures before you enjoy, because once you turn the system on we won't hear from you for a while. ;\)

I have a Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K, when they replaced it with the VSX-1019AH-K I wondered what was going on. Other than a few, mostly useless, new features it seemed to be a step down. Now I see the reasoning, they needed to differentiate the VSX-9130TXH-K. I really like my 1018, and will eventually end up with an Epic 80 setup too (building mine piece-by-piece). The 9130 should be an excellent receiver, especially for the price.

I also have a PS3. Been considering the new Oppo player. The Oppo is quieter, and has a better scaler for DVD playback. But other than that, I still think the PS3 is a better Blu-ray player if you're going to be using an HDMI connection to a 1080p set (mostly because of sound mixing, and disc compatibility issues with the Oppo).

Wow this is your first stab at HT? That's a pretty good list of equipment for a first timer. Starting off with M80's is like learning to drive in a Ferrari F40... how do you upgrade that???

Lol, just kidding. You'll be in heaven once everything is hooked up, enjoy.

Hi,

I'm woried because eventhough I red a lot on the internet, posts on this forum and articles on Axiom's Website, I am still not perfectly comfortable with all the technical terms and everything. I was especially concerned about blowing a lot of money and not being sure to get the maximum out of my system.

Now that I've red your posts, all I have to do is wait for the 80-350 to arrive, put it all together and enjoy.

Thanks guys!

It will be awesome..

I have a similar setup..but Denon 4802 with PS3 and a borrowed EP350, which will have to go back to the other in a few weeks \:\)

You will be blown away. I am enjoying it and am yet to get the SPL meter and setup..which should make it even better. You are in good hands on the forum. These guys are amazing. Somebody will even comeover and help for beers ofcourse \:\)

Enjoy..

--Avi

The MCACC auto setup for Pioneer does a remarkably good job. Just make sure there's no ambient noise (I did my final run through at 4 AM and the ground outside was covered in snow). It doesn't get too fancy, just levels, distances, and a little EQing (with the Axioms review the EQ adjustments, they should be minimal). It does also do a 3 point adjustment for the subwoofer too, which really helped to flatten bass response in my room.

This forum is one of the reason I bought an Axiom HT. The other is my uncle has one and I was amazed at how good it is. Since he shopped HT for years (literally) before buying an Epic 80-350, it made my decision real easy.
