"Stereo" means two channels, right? But my home theater has more than two channels. Does that mean this subforum is the wrong place for me to be? Correspondingly, I see that in the product part of Axiom's site, if I want to know about M80 speakers, e.g., I need to look under "Stereo Speakers". I think this is rather strange. I use my M80s in a multi-channel system that is not stereo, and there is nothing specifically "stereo" about an M80.

I can find my way around the forum and the product pages here perfectly well, because I'm used to it, but if some HT beginner were shopping for front speakers for his 5.1 system, wouldn't it be confusing to have to look under "stereo" speakers?

I think it was set up this way to afford forum users the option to differentiate between discussions about CONTENT and INSTALLATIONS that are primarily two-channel vs. multi-channel.

My sense is that most regular forum users read all the subforums, anyway.

I would think if a true HT beginner were to go to Axiom's product pages he/she would look to the heading "Home Theaters" and move on from there.

Greg, the term "Stereo" is a rather outdated concept, and if this forum was actually limited to a discussion of listening only on front speakers, it would be of very limited value. However, in reality its scope is much broader and I doubt that very many are confused and don't read it because of the title.

I thought they called this the stereo forum because you got thread-jacks on two channels instead of one.

Come on now, don't be blaming Jack. He is busy restoring music for us.

Maybe we could rename it to "Speaker Jive"?

There is nothing confusing here. Plenty of people listen to music in stereo. I watch movies in 5.2 or 7.2 and I listen to music in 2.1 which is stereo since bass is not directional. This forum is for subjects pertaining to stereo up to 6 posts at which point anyone is free to thread jack.

I always figured this board was Stereo as a compliment to the Home Theater board next door. This one was for two-channel setups, and that other for multi-channel.
