ok guys. i can hardly believe this was the real problem, but it seems to have been. i had 2 couches in the area in front of my tv...one was kinda blocking my direct line to the speaker, etc.

well, i moved both couches out of the way, just to see what the difference would be for sound. i havebeen listening to music for 2 hours now...and loving every minute of it.

THE VOCALS ARE BACK!!!

it seems that just by moving the couches out of the way, and turnin off the LOUD function, all my lost vocals are back. i was even thinking of selling these M60Ti's, but now i don't think i will. they sound fantastic. i FINALLY know what all you guys have been raving about.

i'd still like a pair of martin logans, and jm lab focals, but i think i'll still keep these axioms now. very very impressive difference just from moving the furniture around. and very weird, i think. but hell, i'm THRILLED. just thought i'd share. sorry so long

oh ya. one other thing. i don't know if you remember me complaining that these speakers didn't seem very loud...well....now that there is no furniture in the way, holy crap are they loud. i was listening before at -5, now i can't bear to turn them up past -10 or so. weird eh???

So you have been listening to speakers with a sofa in the way the whole time and you didnt think that might be a problem?

Jinx, can I make a suggestion that is going to sound cockier than I mean it to be?

Take some time and learn what you're doing before even considering blowing money on this hobby. You're so fired up to decry a speaker line good or bad or to spend some serious coin, but you don't understand your equipment well enough to know the "loudness" switch was engaged in your amp or that room acoustics make a difference?

May I cautiously recommend you spend more time learning this hobby by reading posts instead of rushing to make them?

well. my other speakers were taller, and it never was a problem before. i just never really thought about it. i never said it was a smart thing. just a revelation more or less. i can laugh at myself too. i'll be ordering a VP150 soon...that is, unless i get my transfer to Ottawa...then i'll have to hold off.

well, you may, but...i work hard, i have money, and i have no children, so basically i am the child. and sometimes i act like it i guess...meaning spontaneous purchases...i have been reading a lot, and learning a lot. i will say, the axioms are not the best speaker i have ever heard by a long shot, but for the price, they are pretty good. i was just very concerned about the lost vocals...

I wouldn't call that room dynamics. More like intelligent speaker placement. It makes a huge difference.

Heck, tonight I was heading to Best Buy on Hwy 61 Revisited. I could not figure out why it was so hard to see the road, then it dawned on me, what if I turn my headlights on? Wow, what a freaking difference dudes, I could see the road much more clearly.

ya ya. rub it in. it wasn't like it was completely blocking the speaker or anything, just kinda in the way of the soound waves i guess. at least i can admit my mistakes..and learn from them. jesus, you guys act like you don't have a WAF either....
