Description
Another upgrade. Axiom has a new Rosewood so I've upgraded my speakers at the same time as changing the finish. The only speakers that I have now from my original system are my 2 M80's serving duties as my A side surrounds.

So now my system is composed of:

Fronts: LFR's V3 (can be classified as V4)
Center: VP180 V4
Side surrounds: A - M80's V2
B - QS8's V4
Rear surrounds: QS8's V4
Front Subwoofers: EP800's V4
Rear Subwoofer: EP500 V4

Powering 1 LFR and the VP180: Axiom ADA1500-8
Powering 1 LFR and 1 rear surround: Axiom A1400-8
Powering the rest of the surrounds: Denon POA-A1HDCI
Pre Pro: Denon AVP-A1HDCI
Monitor: 60" Pioneer Kuro PRO-141FD
Universal player: OPPO BDP-83
Telus Optic TV
Apple TV

Shoot me if I think about any more upgrades. I've also got to think about what I should do with my M80's. Upgrade, leave them as is or get rid of them.

I've got the amps so why not use them? I was planning to upgrade my A1400 to the ADA1500 and at the last moment decided to keep the A1400 "just in case".

I was just curious, though maybe you had unique reason or expectation for trying it this way.

Well he has the amp power to run 16+.3 so he need to pick up a few more speakers still.

Yes Tom, I made the leap to 9. I kind of had room for the ninth.

Any suggestions on were I could possibly put more speakers AND still be able to move around? I'm NOT hanging anything from the walls or ceiling. frown
