I never realized how mixed a system you have Saturn.
Do you have any plans to integrate the same brand speakers more into your system or have you found a setup that works for you?

Mixed up..yes I am...as with my system...I have yet to integrate. But it is in the works:
MA Silver S6 ...all boxed up ready to be returned..awaiting the TB2 on a slow boat from china...I mean UK)
M22 (pretty much gone, awaiting closure of a deal)
B&W CC6 going to my brother (being replaced with TB2 center)
I might go with DB1 for rears but the $1400 expenditure is something I can not justify for just rear surrounds. I still might be happier with the QS4.
Well see.

Hmm... I already see some interesting trends in the current results, although the numbers are small.

Keep the votes coming!

If you like dispersive speakers, not in my opinion. If you're a big fan of direct surround speakers, then I would say yes.

I suspect that jbzngowest might be asking whether there are any surround speakers on the market with similar "quad-pole" driver configurations as the QS series. Is anybody aware of any?

Way off topic here. When I was in college we lived in a quad which was 2 bedrooms, 2 to a room and a common area. We had an old atari 2600. The only game we'd play was warlords because you can have 4 players playing simultaneously. The winner of the evening would be crowned with a burger king hat with "king of the quad" written across the front. I retired king of the quad, but foolishly threw out the hat because I thought I was too mature. That was a good time.

I know Monitor Audio carries a dispersive surround speaker similar to Axiom but its drivers are set in the cabinet differently.

I don't have Axioms yet so I was wondering what is with the low results for the EP350?
From other posts I've also noticed less favorable reviews of it. If someone was going to build basically one of either the two flagship home theatre packages would a different sub go better with it than the 350?

Thanks
