Very true. Mostly I just like you guys. I wouldn't participate in this forum to the degree that I do if it was simply an interest in A/V. Sure, I love to talk about that stuff, but there are other places to do that. I choose this place because of the personalities.

Ha ha, don't worry. I wouldn't bother to attenuate jokes at my expense, either.

If there were ever a true Axiom get together I would find it interesting to do a true blind session with Axioms lineup to hear the differences. But really, for me, it would be all about the people and if I never heard an Axiom speaker through the time, it really wouldn't matter to me.


I would love to hear all the various systems we have in a controlled environment. Iím always wondering if Iíve messed up something with my setup or if Iím missing something. OTOH, I think itís really hard to just listen based on equipment alone and would actually learn more from hearing how others have set up and tweaked their systems based on room acoustics and listening preferences.

Iíve had my Axioms in 3 different rooms set up multiple different ways in each and gotten a huge variety of performance out of them depending on what I was shooting for based on room limitations and type of sound I was looking for at the time.

Right now Iím of the opinion that my present way things are set up is taking advantage of the dynamics of the M80s with the highest and lowest frequencies dominating a little over the midrange. I have just gravitated to that over time since my main use is for HT and gaming. Also Iím sure these curtains (which are heavier than those in the apartment) are probably killing a particular frequency. Need to get some equipment to test all that out.

For awhile I was using 2 different seats for HT and 2ch music because of the difference the distance to the speakers relative to the room makes them and the soundstage sound. I may go back to that setup after testing the M80s elevated for awhile longer. However, in the end I picked the M80s over all the other speakers I listened to not just because of price/performance but because the were clearly IMO the most dynamic speakers of the bunch which falls in with my primary uses.

I love hearing stories like this! Thanks for posting StPat, and thanks for being a generous host grunt. I enjoyed my short time with Micah, really, I did! ;\) The people on this board are another reason why I enjoy the whole experience.

I think we all agree that it is the online personalities that we all enjoy and one of, if not the main reason we frequent this forum so much.

I know I miss a few of the personalities that have gone by the way side, Mojo and Big John being 2 that come to mind, although I do still get to visit with Mojo from time to time(this coming Tuesday for example \:\) ), a friendship started via this forum \:\)
