Hi,

This is my first post here and I thought I'd give you an idea of what I'm looking for, fire off a few questions, and then sit back and wait for you to enlighten me

I am just getting into home theatre, my only purchase to date is a Panasonic DVDRV31K dvd player that is hooked up to my run of the mill 32" TV. I am also getting rid of my current 25 year old stereo system (Bose 901 series II amd crown amp/pre amp, make me an offer please) .

My listening habits are probably 50% music, and 50% movies. There is also going to be a move to a smaller house sometime in the next year or two so I am looking for something that is physically small but gives me big sound. My listening tastes run from rock to classical.

This is what I 'think' I need:

main: M3

although the M22s do appeal to me as well, is there a noticeable audible difference between the two? What would I miss by going down to the M2s?

centre: VP100 5.25 woofers. Are they best matched with the M2 (5.25), M3 (6.5) or M22 (5.5x2)?

surrounds: QS4 Good match with the M3s and M22s? QS2's better with the M2's or not?
Stupid question... I can see two speakers, where are the other two?


Sub: EP125. I don't want "Honda Civic" boom box bass, I want something that is tight but not over powering. Is it important to get the sub from Axiom or will any 8" sub in the $250-350 price range do?

I have listened to Paradigm and Energy and to my ear at least, Axiom is giving me what I want to hear. I just need to get a fix on which product will do the job.

Thank you for listening, and give Amie a raise, I've never, ever had any company reply to me so quickly, and on a Sunday as well.

My enlightenment is an Epic Master System. This is comprised of the M3s, VP100, QS4s, and EP175. The EP175 sub that this system has is best for your music preferences and for movies; I think you will need this.
