SR, welcome. Looking at the list at the beginning of the Auditioning thread above(which isn't entirely up-to-date)the closest listing to St. Louis is Jacksonville, Illinois. If that seems interesting you could try to make contact by way of a PM. You might contact Amie or Andrea at Axiom to see if there are other possibilities.

If you are ever in the Des Moines, Iowa area, I could do a demo. Of course I am about 5 hours away.

Just offering, but hopefully you will find someone closer.

What speakers are you thinking about (besides the EP500)? I wouldn't be able to help you there, but could help out with M60s, VP150, and QS8s in a 5.1 set up.

How'd I miss this?

I'm the guy from Jacksonville, IL and it would be my pleasure to demo my Axiom gear for you if you're up for the drive. It's a pretty easy jaunt up 267 through Alton to get to Jacksonville, although you will be leaving civilization and entering the 'Cornfield Zone'.

I don't know where you live in St. Louis, but it's about a 2 hour drive from the Central West End to my home.

See my sig for gear. If any of that interests you, just PM me and we can work out a time.

Just wanted to post a follow up here...

srajan and his brother stopped by last weekend for a demo.

Things went well. Always great to meet fellow board members, and especially fun to turn someone on to the world of Axiom. They couldn't have been any nicer.

I picked out many songs that highlight the accuracy and tonal control of the M80's. Then I picked out a couple of movie clips to demonstrate how well the speakers are voice matched, and how smooth surround transitions are, as well as dialog and action sequences. Couldn't help but show off the SVS as well (with the advice that the EP500/600 is even better.

Anyway, I think everyone had a good time.

We might have an Axiom convert on our hands.

I want to Thank Peter and his wife for hosting us. It was worth drive and gave us a chance meet two very nice & music passionate people.Peter played various music & movie tracks to demo the Axioms. (Lot of preparation & Excellent demo). Hopefuly when I am done Peter can stop by place .

I was very impressed with his knowledge on speakers and the overall technology around it.

Thanks again Peter.

After the demo I had no doubt that Axiom is the way to go , just din't have time to post or get the order in.

Last monday I made the call to Axiom and its on my way .. I already have the surrounds & center delivered but still waiting on the sub, L& R.

I got the 7.1 Epic 80 600 package

Receiever : Denon AVR-4308CI
Tower Speakers M80
Surrounds QS8
Centers VP150
Subwoofer EP600

It will be a while before I hook up speakers . Still in the middle of my home theater construction...

I will keep you posted.

Peter I did give your name as my reference. Thanks again.

Sam Rajan
