I would like to thank everyone for all the help and knowledge shared over the past couple years.

Last night I started dismantling my theater room in preparation for our move next weekend. We bought a new home; bigger, better, newer, blah, blah, blah, but of course no room for my Axiom products, YET! My wife and I came to an agreement I would not "litter" up her new family room with "all those speakers and cushion things on the walls" if in a couple years I can start working on another dedicated room in the basement. Of course she wants "those cute little speakers(M22's) for the family room, but not that big flat one(vp180) that will block part of the TV again"

I have learned a lot from many of you here and greatly appreciate the honest, constructive information many have provided. It's been tough for me to stay active here, and/or contribute knowing my days of pleasure in the basement were numbered. I will still pop in to stay up on the ever changing hobby we all love, but just needed to share my sorrow.

Thanks again everyone,

Brian aka Pitbull24

Start working on that basement thing sooner rather than later? Buy some ridiculously good headphones?

Brian, you can still hang out here even if your theatre isn't currently set up, you know. Nick's been doing it for a few years now. And I'm not sure Sean even has any Axiom speakers any more.

If you need some place to store the VP180, I think Peter can pick it up from you over the summer.

Yeah, Brian, come and hang out with us regardless!

I agree with Tom--start working on that basement right away. Like you say, Brian, it's a hobby we love. My stereo is one of the first things I set up when I moved to Arizona.

And, Tom, I still gots my M3 speakers and QS8 surrounds. Still keepin' it real.

All I can think of is the Loreleis and those big honkin' tube amps. And the Vandersteens. And the heat.

The honkin' tube amps are dormant for now. No need to heat my room in the summer!

Oh, and the Loreleis are taking a break in the closet.

Shh. . . .I'm trying out new speaks. . . .

Ha ha, I'll post pics and thoughts in another thread so as not to further derail this one.

I wanted to try something different and got a pair of Tekton Design Lore speakers.

It fit the bill of what I was looking for--high sensitivity with a generous frequency range.

Tekton Lore?

They should totally come out with computer speakers and call them Tekton Data.
