Next time my family wants to do a camping reunion, I know where to suggest we go.




Yeah and you can all have a sing-a-long in the anechoic chamber!

Seriously, if you like camping, Algonquin, which is not far from the Axiom facility is world class. I can give you a link to a bunch of pictures of my group of crazy campers from a previous year if you would like.

I am going up again in November to stay in a Yurt. That'll be cool and cold!

It was my pleasure! (that I was talking about)

It definitely was worth the visit.

Regards,

Rick

I'm definitely jealous of the tour. I'll have to make a pilgrimage someday.

You may be jealous of the tour but I am jealous of Axiom owners. My "Speaker Fund" is growing slowly but it is still going to take a while. I've taken to swapping my equipment from room to room to see if I can get my HT to be better for music and just better in general. I have improved things a little. But I'd rather be uncrating a new set of Axioms.

Hopefully soon.

I'll definitely have to make the trip to Axiom someday myself. I saved up for about 5 years for a set of speakers, ended up buying the Epic 80 w/ EP600 and can't be more pleased. The sub is especially amazing. I recently watched The Matrix and 300 on HD DVD usng the Dolby TrueHD tracks. The LFE channel on both movies is very active, and consequently so was the foundation of my house

Five years is too long! I hope I can beat that.

I live in a Toronto downtown semi-detached so I won't be rocking my foundation that much, at least not while the neighbours are home.

I'm shooting for Epic 60 with 500. The room is not huge, however, I am primarily looking for quality not volume. Well, maybe once in a while.....

Regards,

I have a rather large and oddly shaped listening area summing up to about 9,000 cubic feet and the EP600 provides more than enough bass. I'd say you'd definitely be safe going with the 500!
