Well, I finally convinced my wife that we needed $500 surrounds - I pulled the trigger on a pair of QS8's. My question is...
I have Rocket 550's and Bigfoot in front. Has anyone heard Rockets with the QS8's?

Yes. 850s, Bigfoot, and QS8s as surrounds. Sounded terrific, IMHO. YMMV. The QS8s are the best surrounds I've ever heard.

I believe the QS's will probably be the one Axiom speaker that will blend perfectly with just about any speaker system, I know Jon is running them with Martin Logans and loves 'em.

Did you get them from the factory outlet to save some change?

Correct, I personally feel the QS-8's to be the best surround speakers that I have heard. I love em! In fact I tried the Martin Logan scripts (at almost 3 times the cost) and the QS-8'S were better for my ear. They also looked much nicer, at least for my application. I can't see how you could do any better than the Axiom QS-8's IMO. Enjoy them!

Yes I got them from the factory outlet in Boston Cherry to hopefully get close to matching the Rockets Rosewood.
Should I expect them to be a full 3 weeks?

And here's a full rundown of my stuff...

Rotel rsx1057
Toshiba dr400 dvd
Sony 46" Bravia W series LCD
PureAV power conditioner/battery backup
Rocket 550 fronts
Rocket Bigfoot center
BA PV600 sub
Soon to be Axiom QS8

I ordered some QS'8s from the FO and they have been shipped. Delivery will be just under the two weeks quoted.

Jack,
What color is close to the rocket color?

Thanks
