Not sure, Ken, but I'd be surprised if he didn't. Mike is a super nice guy. All you need do is email him at the above address, explain you're a member of the Axiom forum where you heard that discounts were available on some models, and ask him if he offers a discount on the model that interests you. Worst that can happen is that he says no.

I also got a fair deal and trouble-free transaction at Surf. My MX-700 has been performing flawlessly for a couple years.

I have now finished purchasing all the toys for our new system. I am so happy to be past the research phase and into the anticipation phase!

As for the universal remote, further research did indicate only the 2 mentions of bad units of the MX line and most of the discontent was about the software not being available if you purchased from an non-authorized dealer. Learned about surfremote on avs (should have just come back and read the replies to this thread sooner ) and went ahead and ordered the MX-850 from surf remote for a 45% discount off of MSRP.

My final choices were:

Panasonic TH-50PH9UK Plasma (Visual Apex) ETA 10/11
Yamaha RX-V2700 Receiver (Soundpros) ETA 10/13
Panasonic S97S DVD (Vanns) ETA 10/16
JVC HR-S5902 VCR (Vanns) ETA 10/16
Motorola DCT6412 HD-DVR (Comcast) ETA 10/16
Axiom Epic 60-500 Speakers ETA 11/6
Assorted cables (BlueJeansCable) ETA 10/16
URC MX-850 Remote (surfremote) ETA 10/16
Entertainment Center (Hooker) ETA 10/31
New sectional and recliner ETA 10/31


Decided to wait on a 2nd or 3rd generation HD DVD player, so that will give me something to research next year. Thinking about getting a wireless router to connect to the receiver and my LAN (to store more content than the DVR will hold) but DH thinks I have tapped the available funds sufficiently for now, so that will have to wait at least a while. Christmas is coming after all...

Still looking to add some additional cooling solution into the cabinets as all these components are reputed to run hot. Found this USB fan which I think would help but do you guys have any other ideas?

Halloween will be my favorite holiday this year!

Wow, Laurie, I'm impressed! One problem--your speakers are going to be the last things to arrive! It's gonna be one busy October/November to set up all that stuff. Congratulations.

I'm with you on the HD-DVD. I'm content to wait for the next generations of these things. Technology will improve and prices should go down. Plus, we'll see some universal players (I hope). In the meantime, I'm pretty happy with the way standard DVDS look on my set-up. Besides, I don't really feel like rebuilding my movie collection in HD just yet. . .

Laurie, my hat's off to you. You've done a wonderful job and have put together an impressive system which should provide many hours of enjoyment. Bravo!

Waiting for the 2nd or 3rd generation HD player is an excellent idea. I'm doing the same.

When the MX-850 arrives, should you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

With all those toys on your way I can see why you "can't hardly wait". Impressive list. I'm jealous. lol

You live in Sandy, Utah eh? Did I mention that my Aunt and her family live there too?
