I totaly agree with the above post, except for one thing.
Given Jimmy's mean-spirited tone, and his seemingly intentional attempt to leave out some very important facts about the demo situation (that he knew about going in)I think Dennis' second mistake was inviting him back.

In reply to:

its my investment, I'm happy with it, and I have lived long enough that I can take criticism from anyone, good or bad, but it does not effect my life for more than an hour or so.




Took me many moons to finally figure this out, with me though, usually an 'hour or so' is stretching it way long!

Actually I thought for you to audition your system, *that* kind of system straight out of the box without any tweaking and calibrating was a very nice gesture by you and at the very least should have been the first letters typed in the opening post by Jim..first and foremost.

Oh BTW, although I know at least some of the sound quality was lost, I thought the system sounded great...way down here in south Florida.

Good Morning Tharkrun,

Came across this thread this morning. Uhh... very interesting exchange... Anyways, I don't mean to change the subject (ok its my feeble attempt to...what is it called, "hijack" the thread...). My dad is old school (Marantz 2245, AR speakers, Akai reel to reel, Pioneer pre-amp, Schure belt drive record player...you get the picture)and is a dyed in wool "stereophile" (don't know if that's a term...). When you get your system set up, would you mind extending a visit to my dad and me for a listen. I want him to listen to what he is missing (Actually, my hidden agenda is to get him to spring for a set of Factory Outlet QS8's). You see, I just hooked up my M60 fronts, VP150 center, EP350 sub, and m2 surrounds but I live in SoCAL and dad lives in Fairfied Ca. (40 mi. east of SF) so listening over the phone won't cut it. Mom and Dad have yet to come down and visit their grand daughters and to hear my new system plus I will be up there before they come down here. Let me know if my request is OK with you and I can PM you with my contact information and my impending visit to NorCal.

Mark -
As I stated in my reply above. my door is awlays open for auditionong Axioms, I'm am very one happy customer, and feel this is the least I can do, since I have had so much phone support over my amp issues from Alan, Brent, Joe, and Amie always respond to my email so fast, I have decdied she sleeps with a laptop close by.
After my first experience at offering an audition, I may need to take the advice of a member of my age on this forum and in the future have a disclaimer for auditioning. It would state that the system is set up for my listening preferences, and in no way is that to reflect the quality of Axiom or Parasound products, I'm soley responsable for all sound quality, speaker placement, and being able to program the C2 processor. LOL
All humor aside, of course, auditioning invites are open to all and in any numbers, the listening area is rather large, so not confined to just a few, the more, the better, as I'm open for others objective opinions on any improvments I might be able to make. I do not have a trained ear such as Alans, so I do not state that my system is the ultimate, or that I will ever have it tweaked to perfection, its a hobby, and I will always be tweaking with something........I hope

Tharkun,

thanks for putting some closure on this issue, it sounds like you were up front with Jimmy, and explained that no setup of the system had yet been completed, for some reason he left that out. Anyway, I'm sure once you get everything in synch, that system will be one to reckon with...

Hi Tharkun,

Thought I would shoot this out before heading to work. Thanks for the invite. My dad will be impressed. BTW, I am in the same boat. Will always tinker to find what sounds best to me. The constant room rearrangements and reconfigurations is driving the significan other crazy. But hey its in the name of finding the optimum soundstage. Again I appreciate that you have opened your house for auditioning. In my mind, I think that is awesome.

Regards,

Mark

Hell yes man!!! i got two thumbs WAY up for tharkun. even though his system might not be perfect(yet), he has put himself in a position to have to take these types of bad and unflattering comments. if the guy didnt like the system, or he was just not blown away by it, then cool, dont buy axiom and halos. but NO ONE likes to hear those types of things about their system they have invested so much time, money, and effort into.

your a good man there tharkun. just wish i could make it for the BBQ. hey, maybe someone can make some of my 3-dump chili.. then it will at least smell like i am there!!

bigjohn

Yeah, hey, what Jack, MarkS, Randy, and bigjohn said!

Dennis is a good guy.

It's wrong to accept someone's hospitality and then, cloaked by the compulsion to be "honest", complain about it later in public. Wrong. We still have Right and Wrong, don't we?

As to wanting the party to smell like bigjohn is there...

I think Axiom should send Alan to all the audition homes for a full day of calibration.
Come on down Alan.
