I couldn't resist.
This thread is dedicated to Ken and his late night browsing, and early morning, and mid afternoon right after the nap.

You beat me to it. Well, I guess I could start threads on:

biamping vs. biwiring
measuring all channels driven or not
how "bright" are Axioms?
HTIB's vs separates
center channel: same brand as the front? horizontal or vertical?
2 EP-350's vs 1 EP-500 (wait, I did ask that question ...)

Don't want to hijack the thread Chess, but my favorite question that comes up all the time is:

"Why newbies can't figure out how to use the Search option?"

Do speaker wires really make a difference?

I hear that they make the subwoofer more "laid back"

Yeah, but the problem is that the revealing nature (some call bright) of the Axioms suddenly transforms into a more "blustery" image.

Initially the presence seemed quite ripe - lots of primary mids, with harsh highs leading the parade, and strangely a bass that was a bit thin and dry. With time, it opened up and turned savoury: red fruits with new leather, lovely ripe tannins, medium bodied, earth and spice and a bit of stalk too. Very good length and a drying finish complete the package – a good speaker, and I like the cut of its jib.
