Hi Dennis,

I live just over the hill in San Ramon, I'll have to come by and check out your system sometime. Feel free to do the same with me. I have: M80's, VP150, Outlaw Audio LFM-1 sub, and I'm just running some cheap Boston Acoustic bookshelfs for my surrounds right now, I've got an Outlaw 1050 for my receiver, and I'm running a separate Aragon 4004 (2 x 200w) to power the mains.

I looked all over Axiom's site to sign up on the demo list (willing to demo my system to people), but I can't find where to sign up for this.

Just a suggestion, Jimmy is in San Ramon as well, so if he contacts you, be sure you have your system at peak performance.

Jimmy can find someone else, sorry Jimmy. I understand that some people may not like Axiom's, there are better speakers around for more $$$. I am not personally insulted when someone criticizes them, it seems like some people on this board are (not Tharkun), but there was no call for the rudeness exhibited.

In reply to:

I'm going to stand out on my own here but the excuse of "It's not set-up right" is a little to easy to throw around.


But it's not like it was a couple of speakers in a stereo setup in a small room. From Tharkun's pics, he's got them in the Taj Mahal of difficult rooms and it's the whole shebang at once - receiver, amps et al all at once. From what I understand, they pretty much still smelled like cardboard, they were out of the boxes for such a short period of time.

My issue with Jimmy (can't hold it in any longer) is that he was not a member of the board before. He never told us he was going to audition (unless I'm greatly mistaken), so we never needed to know he didn't like them. I wouldn't try out a product, then go and search out the lair of the fans of said product just to tell them that it sucked. It just doesn't make sense, and is completely unnecessary.

I'm going out this afternoon to try out a gas-electric hybrid, knowing full well I want a big ol' SUV with 40" tires... then go onto the Prius forums and complain about cargo space and ground clearance.

I'm out in the shop/garage working on a CD/DVD storage cabinet, and have been watching the posts. I want to thank all for the great support, and over the last few days, have had time to reflect on what was exactly discussed well Jimmy was here.
Alos I have a few sources and have done some research, and I have been waiting for Jimmy to return and make some sort of explaination. In a few days when I have some thime, I'm going to make one more post on this thread, and then drop it, from what I have leaned in the past days, I was a victum of a set up, and this is what pisses me off, I usually see things coming, and should have seen this in advance.
I'm not loosing sleep over this, and I feel I have a great system for what I can afford to invest, its not set up perfect, has lots of areas for improvement. But I have so many projects going on from making this kind of upgrade, that the tweaking, calibating, and such, just has not been a priority as of yet.
Bigger issue is to finish up cabling, power sources for amps, storage for discs that are in stacks.

I should thank Jimmy for his post, as I now have seberal offers from memebers offering to aid in the set up, and this is great for me, I'm not an expert, and will take any help offered.

Jimmy's lack of response says it all!
