My wife and I just finished watching the third Lord of the Rings.
The 7.2 set up was mindblowing!
The subwoofer shook the building. Local nightclubs were calling, asking us to turn it down, they couldn't hear their music! ;-)
And the extra two rear surrounds gave the total surround I was hoping for.
The guys who installed the new equipment were blown away with it, and they're hard to impress. All they do is install equipment, and they couldn't believe the sound.
Very, very cool.

I just got the system all put together and I am very impressed....words do not describe my excitement! This system is hands down the best sound I have ever heard. Still tuning it in for the room, but right out of the box it is amazing. My Emotiva DMR-1 loves these speakers. Thank you for your assistance and advice - the EP500 was definitely the right choice.

Just wanted to thank you for taking time to answer my questions about the DVD player, and to thank Axiom for every part of my experience, from the initial conversation with the sales people, to the shipping. These are as beautiful as they looked on the internet. I am completely happy with the Epic 80's and everyone is impressed with the QS8 v2's. From all the reviews I expected them to handle high levels, but I am just amazed at the sensitivity and how clear the Epic 80's sound at very low volumes.
Also, the web site should get an award as the best designed site on the web. is just presented beautifully with just the right amount of information and help I needed to purchase speakers for my home theater system. I looked for weeks on the Internet and Axiom's site was, hands down, the best in every regard. I read many of the articles, used the wizard, and explored the message board in order to make an informed decision (not to mention numerous calls to the people at Axiom).
Once again, thanks for everything. It been a pleasure.

I purchased the Epic80-500 7.1 system and I must say this setup beats ANY comparible system I tested in the stores by a BIG margin. They're a great set of speakers and in a "bang for the buck" test beat anything I could have bought locally at twice the price. You folks have done a great job.
It also amazes me that it took only 4 days to get Axiom speakers from half way around the world but every other component has taken from between 3 and 14 weeks to get from the other side of Australia!
- The VP150 produces crisp clear dialog and blends nicely with the M80's.
- While the QS8's had to be ceiling mounted due to restrictions in the room they still manage to blend in very well and have a great frequency response. The envelopment of sound with decent DTS ES Discrete 6.1 soundtracks (e.g. Lord of the Rings) works re
- The M80's are brilliant from everything from music to movies and has a stunning response. There's nothing more I can say that Audioholics hasn't already.
- The EP500 is far and away the "star performer" of the system. The amount of clean, tight LFE that can be pumped from this baby is nothing short of incredible. The couch shakes, the windows rattle, the cat flees in terror and it's only at 14 volume!

Wow! I cannot believe how great they sound. I hear things I did not know
existed in the music (I started with Diana Krall/Stepping Out, then Joni Mitchell/Clouds, then Miles Davis/Sketches From Spain, then Z.Z. Top/Greatest Hits--all on cd. Amazing. LOUD and clear. You don't realize how loud it is until you go to the other side of the house--and its still clear.
This morning, I played an old album, David LaFlamme/White Bird, and again I hear things I've never heard in the music. Then I played a Stanley Jordan cd I have. I did not want to have to go to work today!
I plan to sneak home at lunch and see how the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica play on the new system. I suspect I will not be disappointed.
I can't wait to get the speakers going and watch some dvds.
Thank you for making such great speakers at such reasonable prices.

I got the EPIC 80 set today...I spent about 5 hours setting them up, but boy was it worth it. All I can say is...WOW. They look great and sound great...and I am not even coming close to pushing this set to it's potential. Thanx,
-- J.P., GA USA
I really enjoy the Axiom speakers. They sounded awesome. Aside from the speakers, your service is excellent. I will tell my friends about your products. Thanks.
-- Don B., AZ USA
First glances reveal a beautiful finish on all of the speakers; I couldn't get over the quality of the exterior as well as the binding posts!!!
My thanks for the excellent customer service, especially Norean (I hope I spelled that right), who was very helpful in your billing department. Thank you again,
-- Chris L., CA USA
I received the speakers and it is perform like a dream. Thank you very much for your support. You are the best! I wish that all of the customer rep. can be just like you.Sincerely,
-- Dany N., FL USA
Thank you very much for the incredible service every step of the way. I spent yesterday setting it up, and last night listening. I'm very pleased with the product, and with your organization's attention to detail.
-- Chris J., CO USA
The speakers are awesome! I wasn't really worried they wouldn't be up to my listening standards (I did lots of internet research before I bought), but on the other hand, I know how different speakers can sound "different".
Well, after getting everything hooked up to my new Sunfire Ultimate Receiver, I turned it on, and I was very happy. Very smooth sounding, not harsh, and my investment in the Epicenter 600 was money well spent (I'm a bass nut).
Thanks Axiom! I feel it was money well spent!
-- Mark C., OK USA
I own a pair of M80ti's, a VP150, two pairs of QS8's, and two EP500's, not to mention Axiom Speaker cable and Subwoofer interconnects. You guys truly rule and are the best thing in Hi Fi, High End, Home Theater and Audio gear. In addition to that, your customer service is flat out second to none. Thanks for everything,
-- Iceman, KS USA
My Epic 80 arrived safely and I had it hooked up last night and I am already enjoying it. It is really awesome. I can't get over how amazing it is so far. Your customer service has been equally wonderful and I am pleased doing business with you all the way around. I will call you if I have any questions.

I've had some time to hook everything up and play with speaker placement. I am most impressed with the system I ordered from you. I read on the forums where some thought that the M80's were a bit too bright, however I don't have a problem. After shopping around a bit and listening to a variety of setups, I was amazed at how dull and lifeless the majority of speakers sounded until I got into the upper end (which had a handsome price tag to go with the presence the speakers could produce). I wound up getting my entire 7.1 speaker system (with an upgrade to the EP500) for less than what I would have spent for a pair of mains. Not only does this sytem rock, it does it with no effort. After watching "Ray", this system literally left me holding the remote wondering who I'm going to invite over next. It's inspiring.
I wanted to add a speaker placement tip which proved to me to be most helpful. Since there are so many unique parameters to every installation, I wanted a way to play with my surround speakers to see what worked best before punching holes in the wall. I (temporarily) mounted my four surrounds on adjustable light stands which are available at any hardware store (Loews, Home Depot, Ace hardware, etc). They're very steady with a tripod base and easy to move around. Also, they allow for an infinite height adjustment anywhere from 3' to over 6'). I ordered the wall mount brackets but after finding my sweet spots, I decided to mount my surrounds on stands at about 5.5' instead.

System is definately kicking a**, there's plenty of room filling bass when subwoofer crossover is set at max. I highly recommend the movie Pearl Harbor when testing Hi-Fi during the Japanese invasion scene. Kill Bill 1 and 2, 2Fast and 2Furios, Star Wars 4 and 5, All of the Lord of the Rings, and The Last Samurai are excellent choices as welll.
-- Arvin D., FL USA
I'm enjoying it already. I paired the speaker system up with a new Denon AVR-3805 receiver and DVD-2910 DVD player. I was extremely happy with the fit and finish of all the Axiom components. The quick delivery was impressive as well. It only took 3 days from Canada to South Georgia down here in the U.S.
-- Bill M., GA
You have been more than helpful with this purhcase. The service from your company has been excellent. I would also like to make note of your great web-site. Very very user friendly. Thanks again
-- Greg Y., IL USA
Just to let you know I got the shipment. The speakers are just BEAUTIFUL. You should make this cherry flavor your default color.
Please pass this along to whoever: I'm using them with an ARCAM receiver (AVR200) and the sound is incredibly detailed, crisp, accurate.. (ran out of
synonyms) -- In short, stunning. You should definitely add Arcam to your list of highly recommended amps for the M80's. Also, in my opinion the 80s sound so much better than the 60s and so I'm very glad I upgraded. I wish I could stay in the US and be your reference.
Thank you so much for your great product and 1-on-1 service. Keep on redefining the way people buy audio gear!!!All the best,
-- Oren A., CA USA
I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how utterly impressed I am with your speakers. I recently purchased your Epic 80 Home Theater System and was quite frankly, shocked. I had high expectations but in my wildest dreams I never thought it would sound this good. I powered them with a Onkyo TX-NR901 receiver and the sound is nothing short of amazing. My family and I no longer simply watch a movie, we experience it. We feel it. We are a part of it. I seriously doubt that I will ever again go to a theater. There's simply no need. You're to be commended for producing a truely superior product at a reasonable price. Bravo!

I heard a friend's m22s and they were amazing. I figured I would go for the epic 80 minus the subwoofer (I just built one not too long ago!) When I cranked up the center channel, I was amazed...the imaging was superb and the power and clarity were amazing. Cranked up the Qs8s and was amazed at the presence they gave to my track. I dont have them mounted properly yet, but that is not too far behind. I connected the M80s and was amazed at the sound and especially the bass, large bass was not necessary for me, I built a 1000watt 15" subwoofer in a huge box not too long ago. Overall, an awesome deal for awesome speakers...Thanks Axiom!
-- Zacharia S., TX USA
System was delivered on-time and in perfect condition. I hooked up everything and the system already did 12 hours of stereo listening. I am enjoying them to the maximum. Thanks for a great service.
-- Tariq A., Oman
Thank you for the very quick service (AWSUME). I have them hooked up and WOW I can't believe my receiver could sound this good. I am very impressed! I am having some friends over to audition them over the weekend, they have been waiting for somebody to get them and want to hear them. I suspect you will be seeing some more orders soon.... Thanks again!!!!
