I can't tell you how wonderful it is not dealing with a sub. (which is my shortcoming, I realize, as the majority of the world evidently doesn't have the subwoofer stress)
Can't wait to get home from work and have another listen.
re: sub stress - all that said, I never tried an Axiom sub, so maybe given an Axiom sub, it would have been a different sort of experience. What I love with the all in one speakers is how seamlessly they roll from mid to low, high to low, etc. That's a big part of the attraction, I think. Seamlessness. And depth. sheesh, it's nearly holographic
