Well after months of coming to this site and just looking at the pictures I finally bit the bullet last Thursday and made the purchase. I went with the Epic 60.500 7.1 Boston Cherry (love the HG Cherry but the wallet did not)

I can hardly wait for these freakin things of beauty to arrive. I could not find info on the time frame for shipping I think I read on here around three weeks, does this sound right?

These Axioms are the last piece in my revamped set up. Nothing special like some of the setups you guys have - Sony KDS 60A3000, Onkyo 805, Sony BDP-S1 and now the awsome Epic 60.500 7.1. Thanks for the great info on the forums, I am sure I will be coming back here for some setup tweaks and such.

My current setup is

Welcome to the boards and congrats on the new puchase, you are going to love the new system. 3 weeks sounds right from the factory outlet, but many have received them much sooner.

Sounds like quite a good final touch for your system. You will not regret this!

too bad you couldn't have ordered your speakers a few weeks ago when they had the free promo upgrade to high gloss cherry!

I don't think that promo applied to the factory outlet though.

Enjoy your speakers!

I hooked up my new deno 3808, ran all of my wires, played with the denon GUI, and basically posted on the forum a lot to pass the time

Very nice system. The wait is the hardest part. You can pass the time by reading audio forums but somehow that just makes the wait worse.

Enjoy!

Welcome! I couldn’t stand it so much that I signed up for a six week tour of duty in Turkey. A little drastic but the Axiom’s were a great homecoming present.

Omaha - Hello from a fellow Nebraskan. I've migrated south to Texas now, but still a Husker at heart. \:\)

As for the waiting, I'm with you... waiting for my Axiom sub now... it's no easier than waiting for the rest of the system a month ago. I keep asking myself why I didn't just order the 600 from the get go. Doh!

Whoa...thanks for all the welcomes. I think this is going to be a nice little community and I am sure I will benefit from all the knowledge here. I also got another surprise today. An email from Noreen!! \:\) I got a Fedex tracking number and everything. I don’t think it’s the whole order though, the Fedex info says it is only 27 pounds. Not sure what that would be, but at least it is a start.
