Thanks for the welcome. Cool to see there's atleast a few locals here in the Vancouver BC area...

-bridgman: Would be great to take a week off. But I need to pay for the new toys some how.

-wid: I'll add items to my bio or thread as they show up at the door. I can't say I have anything until it's in my hands. My bio has a little info so far.

-MarkSJohnson: GREAT! now I have to clean the house just for pictures? ugh... I'll take some pix and post them as things are coming along.

-F107plus5: I'll be offering my impressions. I know many others input here and in other forums helped me on my quest so it's the least I can do to help any new comers that may enter the realm after me.

-oz350z: I realy have no doubt that I'm gonna be happy with Axiom. That's only the beginning. I still need to make a couple more decisions to complete the HT system. So many products and companys to choose from. As I did with the speakers I'm gonna hang on til I KNOW what I want.

-SirQuack: Quack Quack. Quack QQQQuack Quack,,,, Quack.

-tomtuttle: see F107plus5 above.

-bugbitten: If I win I'm gonna have a great bedroom HT also! or,,, 14.2 system?

-St_PatGuy: Californians / Canadians... same ship different piles.

I think most of us just photoshop out the dust... and photoshop in a nice shine on the furniture. It's easy, we can show you how...

Ugh. Photoshop has been verbed

Fedex showed up today @ 12:45pm and dropped off the Axiom items. My Daughter stayed home today for me to accept the delivery. It was a beautiful day, but she stayed home for me. What a great kid. Got everything unpacked and gave it all a once over. Everything looks fine. One of the QS3 boxes was damaged, but the unit inside is fine. The crunch/slice in the packaging was maybe 1/2 inch from damaging one of the grills that are packaged one on top and one on the bottom of the box. It was close. I can't test the speakers yet because I'm still in the process of receiver/amp shopping, but needless to say you can bet it's going to be a higher priority now that I have these speakers sitting here dorment. I'll keep you folks updated as things come together. For now I've updated my bio items list.
I was going to offer a little review of my first impression of the unpackaged items, but I think I'm going to wait until everything is up and running.

(info updated in bio)

I kind of cheaped out a lil' today. I feel I have let all of you down. My original goal was to pick up a Denon 4806 or Integra separates DTC-9.4 & DTA-9.4 or maybe even a Integra 10.5. After re-evaluating my budget I decided to slow down a little bit and settle for a cheaper unit. I'll work with it for a few months and then jump on something sturdier. I'm pretty sure I'll be happy enough for now with it knowing eventually I'll be swapping it out. But I know it's not going to be as strong as I want or need to power the Axioms. Maybe I'll concider an AMP to give me a lil' more juice until I upgrade. ((Lucky for me I'm a VERY patient man))... Still one more item on it's way. I'll let ya'll know when it's here.

Sunday...

I had a couple minor issues with the setup, but around 2am last night the system was setup and ready for testing. I'm still waiting for one more item to complete the project and it looks like it's going to be late in the week before it arrives. Until then all I can do play with settings and wait. I'll be auditioning a complete THX Select certified package of Mordaunt-Short speakers in my home later in the week. Only the sub in not certified... (504 Centre / 502 towers / 506 Dipole x4 / 909W sub). I'll be using the Integra DTR-8.4 for the audition so this should be a fair comparison between the Axioms and Mordaunt-Short. I've heard a Mordaunt-Short setup instore and thought it was pretty good. So by the end of the week or next weekend I should know if the Axioms are going to be a permanent fixture in my home. I have found a couple minor finish blemishes in the Axioms that I was kind of surprised to find. It's nothing to serious, but it is a little disappointing to me. I have more to say about Axiom quality but I'm going to wait till I'm ready to give you all the full report. I know the Mordaunt-Shorts I saw instore were very well built and seemingly flawless in finish. The finish issue could sway me if things get close and I have trouble deciding what I'm going to keep. So far the Axioms sound ok from what I've heard so far. I'll be back soon with more...
