Bray, I use two 12" 250 watt JBL PSW-D112 subs in my room(one in each front corner) and I've been running since 1998. It seems that the amps blew on everyone who bought them except me. I like my movies really loud so they get on heck of a work out, but for some reason they just keep going. I can't explain it. Sometimes I hope they will blow so I have a reason to upgrade, but they just keep going.

Once your in with MA, there is no going back. Now that you have the bug you will want the GR20's.........and then before you know it, the almighty GR60's which to this day are one of the best set of speakers I have heard regardless of price!

Time to update your site and get rid of that JBL stuff!




Thanks Never, I'm betting I get upgraitus again a year from now and the s10 show up on ebay and the GR60s show up on my site. As for the site I have a lot of work to do. The Rotel pre amp has been replaced with a Sherwood Newcastle P-965 and the JBL front are history so now I hve to get my butt in gear and update it.

In reply to:

I love the cherry finish on my GR 10s. Oh, and the sound--I llike that, too!



I really wanted the cherry ones, but then the wife would have been upset since all the other speakers are black. She wanted the cherry too, but I told her to make things match we'd have to upgrade all the speakers and that would include the following:

2 fronts
2 subs(front LFE)
2 subs(inline with the side surrounds)
2 side surrounds
2 center back surrounds
1 center

When she realized how much it would cost to upgrade 11 speakers she said "your getting black"

Ajax,
Thanks for understanding. On a lot of other forums my post would have been taken as a "I hate speaker xyz". I really did want the m80, but the s10 just won me over.

Guys thanks for being so cool about me posting about a speaker other than axiom. On a lot of other forums my post would have been taken as a "I hate speaker xyz" post. I really did want the m80, but the s10 just won me over. I guess it's really to the m80s credit though because I started wanting the Paradigm 100s and after hearng the m80 I gave up on the 100s and wanted the m80 since they gave a similar sound at half the cost.

Congrats bud. The QS8s do work well with the MA S8s that I recently picked up.
I would also like to reiterate: THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH AXIOM SPEAKERS. Now that I've had my S8s for about a month, I have an even greater appreciation for the M60s. No speaker is perfect for all material.
The MAs sure are snazzy looking, though.

Congratulations on the new speakers. It sure takes a lot of listening until you find "the right ones for you", doesn't it ? Glad you found them.

M2, M3, M40, M50, MA, whatever...

It wasn't me.
I swear.


Lovely speakers Legairre. I could never part with my M60s, but at some point in the future i will also likely own some MA. Maybe for the office....
