Thanks to everyones great replies. Love your setupd Luc

Well, I think I'm going to go with the VP180. I like big and badass. And most of the time, It's going to be for my sweet spot. In the future, I can always experiment with center channels.

So my choices are finalized smile

2M80s
1 Vp180
1 Ep800
2 Qs8
1 Pioneer Elite Sc-61 receiver

I've learned so much in the past few days thanks to you all.

I still have one question though that has been left unanswered:

1. Audio Jewelry(this term is new to me...i don't get it?). I've done tons of biwiring in previous setups and always thought it was an advantage. With further reading, it seems Axiom believes it makes no difference, but offer the option for customer satisfaction mainly. Should I get the option or no? Die Cast woofer baskets or standard? What's the difference if any?

Thanks again to everyone. I sure hope I get this new job

I've already answered my own questions. Thanks to everyone.

I'll update later this week if I actually get to place this order.

Cheers

Thanks smile It's looking good. Only 16 interviews, 10 positions.

Someone I know already received a rejection letter. In a week since he got his, I haven't received one. My fingers are crossed as well.

I'll receive about 16,000 for a pension payout from my current job smile

edit: I have MANY more questions about accessories/setup, but I don't want to get to far ahead of myself. I will bring all these questions to light if I get to make this purchase all at once.

Neither biwiring nor cast baskets will make an audible difference in your system, IMO.

that should be a wonderful system for years to come.

Have fun.

On topic, I run a single M22 as a center channel with my M80's and I think its great. I plan on ordering another m22 so I have a 5.1 with M80's and M22's.

M80 - M22 - M80


M22---------M22

Hey Chris,
Just curious why M22's for surrounds instead of QS8's?

Right now I'm running a 3.1 setup, no surrounds. I have an extra M22 speaker on the stand not being used. So If I buy the QS8's I still have a single speaker collecting dust, also have nowhere to wall mount the QS8's until the gf and I buy our first home at the end of this year. I was thinking that It might be more economical to purchase a single M22 to complete my 5.1 setup, then in the future when I have the space I can get the QS8's for a 7.1 setup.

Do you not think the M22's would be good for surrounds?
