I live in Mississauga and am listed on the auditioning page under firstname.lastname@example.org. I have M80s, VP150, QS4s and an EP500 in addition to two other Polks. Feel free to contact me.
I find Axioms don't sound harsh at all, they produce very pleasing sound. My environment is primarily for home theater use but I do also listen to some music. The M80s are especially fine, they just "articulate" the sound so well for lack of a better term.
For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert.
