Do you get a lot of sunlight through that window? Just curious. It seems like it would make watching tv a bit difficult in the daytime.

No, that window's pretty much blocked by the house next door. I had a TV over there way back when when I lived in that house.

Yep, Jack, solo M3s at the moment, but I'm planning on adding an SVS PB10 in the not too distant future.

That's cool, keeping the house in the Axiom family!

Nice setup Adam, I also like the blue trim and the wood floors. May I ask what is that cone shaped object on the floor by the door?

It's a cat scratcher (says the guy who used to live there).

Up until some point in 2000, the living room had dingy brown carpet and the trim was black and gray (!!!). Ken and I decided enough was enough and painted it as you see now with the help of friend. We had recently added a new housemate, as well, and she was really into putting her mark on the house (and taking over, as only a woman can). She discovered that the carpet was hiding a wood floor, so she ripped it out one day. Then she discovered that it needed refinishing. Luckily, her uncle was a handy landlord with a stockpile of tools. He came over with his floor sander and took the layer or grime off the floor for us. Then she and I finished up the corners and edges, cleaned off all the sawdust, and put down three coats stain/poly. It was well worth it.

Ah, the memories. I miss wood floors.

In the midst of a cold and snowy Virginia winter, I think you'll love having carpeting.

Aww, man, you ruined it! I was gonna say it was a mystic sound enhancer that gives me crystalline highs and depth shattering lows, with a holographic soundstage and you-are-there realism.

Actually after seeing some of the home made stuff I've come across on the internet I was thinking maybe it something of the sorts. That's why it caught my eye.

Hehe. I hope to never reach that level of audiophilic craziness.

A few more impressions after some more listening - these speakers do bass amazingly well for their size! They really convey an excellent sense of weight to the lower end without sacrificing any detail. Even in loud orchestral passages the the bass is always articulate and full. I'm impressed! I'm not saying they wouldn't obviously benefit from a sub, but they definitely work as a standalone system better than M22s.

Now you just need to get a tube amp to let them really shine.
