Wow, I read this thread last nite as I was finishing up my brackets. I figured this would explode by the morning...

1) Kudos to Tharkun for opening his home to a demo. Wow, you have bling'ed out system there. I'm surprised I can't hear it all the way in the Bay Area...
2) Jimmy is entitled to his opinions. Granted one has to be prepared for replies when generating a post such as this on manufacturer's board. I must admit, though, most Axiom users are pretty open minded and open to criticism.
3) This should heed a warning to auditioners. Always "prepare" auditioners for particulars on your own system. We all have our own auditory preferences, which may not appeal to everyone. I have a lively space, so I always warn listeners. In one audition, I had 2 separate listeners. 1 liked them, the other didn't. The one who liked them bought Axioms. Lesson? Axioms aren't for everyone.

As an aside, seems like auditioning season is starting. I've already had 2 requests in the past 2 weeks. More money for the M60 fund...

You're a good man Tharkun. It seems to me Jimmy was more interested in the marketing rather than the performance of the speakers. Maybe I am wrong, but having worked at one of the B&M's he mentioned, I can't recommend a similar speaker that they sell in the same price range of the M80's that come even close to how well my M60's perform. To each his own I guess.

And, Tharkun, I'd be more than happy to set-up, properly place your speakers, and calibrate both your audio and video when I am down there this summer.

Hey, I'll take you up on that offer, even if it is set up, still can play with it, or least listen and get your opinion, I'm more than happy with the system, and know it will be good once tweaked, and would enjoy sharing with people with similar intersts, people that are not it the audio stuff just can' relate to a decent system.

For any one traveling dwon I-5 Tracy is like right next to the freeway, and I'm about 10 minutes west of it, so its not out of the way from that route.

tharkun, congrats on the killer system (even if the EP600 is just an average one-note thumper! LOL hahahahahah! ). Seriously though, jimmy is a dumbass. Don't even trip.

Maybe treating some of those hard reflective surfaces would be as worthwhile as any other upgrade?

To all,

My dad informed me of the following concernig my initial post to Tharkun:
1) It's a turntable NOT a record player
2) Shure manufactures cartridges
3) The manufacture of HIS turntable is Garrard and the model is a Zero 100 SB

Sorry about any confusion that I may have created or caused...

hehe, had kinda figured that, know the names, but remembering turn tables and tape decks is not a priority, just reminds of my age. LOL

You obviously need to watch "Antiques Road Show" more often

I just got a shock -- went to plug my turntable into my nice new AVR 630 and the darned thing doesn't even HAVE phono inputs. Is this what old age is gonna feel like ?
