I currently have a 18 x 20 room that we watch TV / movies in. We also like to entertain our friends. When this happens the stereo tends to go very loud. Everyone likes to dance and have lots of bass.
We currently have a slim line Techniques tuner / amp which puts out about 100 watts per channel. We also have a pair of Electro voice speakers.
So if we where going to replace the system, what would be the best choice for both a nice surround sound system and something that would blow the windows out when our friends want to dance?
We live between Toronto and Ottawa so if you could recommend a store or possible going direct to the factory maybe an option.
I think we would like spend $1500 ~ 2000 on a complete system.

What are your thoughts?

The Epic 60-500 Home theater will blow you away. It is just a little over your budget but well worth it.

Or was that budget to include a new surround sound receiver as well?

I would go for some tower speakers (M60s/M80s) and M2 surrounds. You can put on the "7 channel stereo" on your reciever for parties and all the speakers will play music, it really fills out the room.

I live north of Bowmanville and have an M60-based system you can listen to if you like.

I was thinking I would keep my surround sound receiver, it's just 2 years old and works well.

Do you know if I can purchase this system from the factory? I think they are located north of Toronto.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Thank you very much for the offer, but I would problely visit a store. Did you purchase your system in Bownanville? I you don't mind, what is the M60 system worth?

Thanks

Axiom does not sell their products in stores anymore, only direct. So if your not interesting in the opportunity of an in-home demo from one of the people on the Audition Thread, you will have to go to the Axiom plant, or make use of the 30 day offer.

If it were me I would love to head up to Big John's, what a nice guy. \:\)

Oh, I didn't realize that they only sold direct. I guess thats a good thing.

If I went to the factory with my amp / tuner do you think I could try the Epic 60 - 350 and the 500. I think the 500 maybe out of my price range.

Do you know if they ever put these units on sale? If so how much of a discount would I expect off of the suggested list price?

Thanks,
