I can't imagine that they will be changing the QS8s (or at least the tonal quality of the line) any time soon. Subs, well, any good sub will do. You don't exactly need to match those in the same way you do the other speakers.

I agree with Ken, the Qs8's are one of Axiom's biggest sellers, they truely are a one-of-a-kind surround speaker in the industry.

To all that have been viewing and making comments to this thread, I have a question to ask you before I consider to place an order.
I am willing to purchase the Epic 60-500 7.1, $3263, that is really more than I want to spend and I understand that Axiom are high end speakers but do you think that if I spoke to a sales rep and ask him if I was not pleased with the system would Axiom split the cost for the return shipping, I don't want to spend close to $200 or more to return the speakers if I'm not going to keep them.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks,

John

I would order the towers first. If you are not happy with the sound of the towers, you have much less to return.

Well, you could just order the M60s to see how you like them. If you do, you could order the rest and still get the package discount. Call Axiom and ask.

Thanks, your correct, I will place an order for the m60 and the 150 center speaker.

Thank you for your help.

John

I do believe you can get the package discount retro active should you go gaga over the M60s (and you probably will ).

I would also order from the factory outlet to save the additional 10%.

John, since the M60s will form a "phantom" center which can at least temporarily be used instead of an actual center speaker, my suggestion would be to get M60s and QS surrounds first, rather than the VP150. The QSs are likely to be a greater benefit, both for music and movies, than a center speaker would be.
