It is a little over a month since I received my speakers - and I have not been surfing the forum as regularly as I was before I got them. As most of you can guess, I have been caught up in re-listening to my CD's and acutally hearing movie soundtracks the way they were intended. I now know what "poor recording" means and I "get" the aquarium scene in NEMO. It is amazing what I have been missing for lo these many. All the pondering over buying speakers sight unheard was definately a waste of brainpower. I purchased several of the recommended Classicals - thanks for all the contributors to those threads.........Rob

Rob, glad to hear it is all working out for you. I forget from the previous threads - what did you order again?

Great!

I think we were all pretty sure that you'd love your Axioms. Glad to hear that they're working out for you as well as they've worked out for (most of) us.

Happy listening. \:\)

Very good, Rob; enjoy. What are some of the things that have dropped your jaw the farthest so far?

Same thing happened to me when I moved into the house and could really start enjoying my speakers.

I purchased an Epic 60 - 500 system. My only regret is that I did not do it sooner. As far as Jaw Dropping - I think Holst Planets and the Cello concertos. I can't discount the moments that I had with "number 2" daughter listening to Vivaldi either. For female vocals - my wife is an Alison Kraus fan and we have run back through most of her and Union Station CD's. As for the LFE and surround effects - besides the aquarium scene, I have Band of Brothers and have watched several of the episodes 4 or 5 times since hooking up the speakers. I might add that I am nowhere near getting through everything that is on my list to check out.........Rob

Well.......Even though I have a house, I can't REALLY enjoy them unless my wife is out.....
