I'm a huge fan of AIX Records as you might have read on Axiom Forums. AIX Records is, with 2L of Norway, the only two companies which offer spectacular and unique multi-channels recordings (Blu-ray - TrueHD/HDMAster, SACD, DVD-A - MLP) which put the listener on the stage with the performers (AIX) or in the center of a circle formed by the performers (2L). They strongly recommend using identical speakers all around. The reason being that you have the sound of instruments played back from several speakers or a single one. You can have two identical instruments: one played back from one main large tower speaker and the other from one small surround speaker. You would tend to believe that a QS8 would reproduce the sound of that instrument quite differently than an M80; it would be kind of shocking. It is not the case, not at all. The Axiom QS8 is a phenomenal speaker delivering a stellar performance in such a role. It is very impressive to experience.
