Hi starkiller,

Great--I'm sure you'll like them. As to the grilles, acoustically it doesn't matter. The effect of the grilles has been reduced to a point that you might detect a difference using a test signal like pink noise, but with music, it's extremely unlikely you'll hear any difference. The attenuation of high frequencies with the grilles on is a fraction of a decibel in the uppermost octaves, where there is little or no useful musical information.

Regards,

Alan

Oh....

You didn't mention that you had a h/t system too. And it's not an Axiom system? Oh dear.

See, we usually don't recommend that people allow *any* Axiom speakers into the house if they have an existing, non-Axiom h/t setup. It's just not fair to the old setup. The Axioms will keep to themselves for a few weeks, but over time they will start to infringe on the old system's territory. The first sign of problems is a general lack of enthusiasm for listening to the old system. And once that starts to happen, well, that's the beginning of the end.

Before you know it, the Axioms will start to multiply. First the mains, then the center, then the surrounds, then the amp - it just won't end until Axiom has total domination over your home. There have been a few reported cases of Axiom's allowing other, non-Axiom speakers to live in the house, but it's pretty rare. Maybe you'll be lucky.

But more than one h/t system has been driven out to the country and abandoned at the side of the road due to the introduction of Axioms to a home. Consider yourself warned.

Congrats on the M3's! \:\)

Funny Peter, for me it's the opposite... I've got the Axiom H/T, but keep talking myself out of the urge to get some nice M3's for my computer setup to replace the Advents! It never ends...

But, just to be safe and to prevent them from spreading the way Peter mentioned, always keep a condom over your Axioms.

No, the condom is there to better control a sound reproduction. Otherwise, it can take you up to nine months to get a flat graph back.
