First time poster, long time reader \:\)

One question for you all, what is better then getting "THE EMAIL" from Axiom telling you your speakers have shipped? How about a phone call from your wife 30 minutes before the email that your speakers have arrived!

3 M22's have arrived for my theatre that I will use as LCR's. This is going to be a slow process for me I joined this board a while ago and just made my first purchase 3 weeks ago. I have been living with a variety of band aid solutions for sound in my dedicated theatre for a while now while I saved to buy a full set of speakers from Axiom but I just never saw that day coming, so I decided to buy what I could afford and pick the rest up along the way.

I will now move my 2 Celestion SL6 si's I was using as my 2 channel sound to surround duty and save up for an EP350, which will then one day be followed by the purchase of some QS8's to replace the Celestions... one day \:\)

Can't wait to get home to hook them up!

The M22s are truly great speakers. For their price, they become a little treasure. Congratulations.

First, thanks for the welcomes, I’d post some pics but the M22’s are behind my AT screen, so not much to see, unfortunately tragedy has struck...

I got home, unboxed my beautiful Boston Cherry M22 Factory Outlet speakers, couldn't find a single thing wrong them. I managed to put off setting them up until the kids went out to the park and then… disaster...

I believe the center channel on my AVR is pooched.

It is a hand me down from my father, an old Onkyo 656, which to be honest, I never checked the center channel on because I only had the 2 Celestion's to bother hooking up. We upgraded him to a new Denon 3808 and I got his old amp to tide me over until I made my purchase. It replaced a cheap HTiB setup I had going so that 2 channel sound was an upgrade believe it or not.

Now when I send the test tones to the 3 speakers I only get a couple of low crackles out of the center channel, left and right play fine. I swapped speakers and cable around to confirm it wasn't a bad speaker or cable and the cable and speakers are fine.

Anyone ever hear of a center channel dying on an AVR before? I don't have an amp at my disposal or I'd like to try the center channel pre-amp out on this AVR into an amp to see if the center channel out is any good. To be honest, I was considering buying an Emotiva XPA-3 somewhere in the distant future to drive these Axiom's, replacing the AVR was really going to be far down on the upgrade path so I had hoped to use the pre-outs on it, but now that I’m not getting anything out of the speaker outputs for the center channel I’m afraid I won’t get anything out of the pre-out as well.

Any tips or suggestions on how to further diagnose the possible bad center channel on my amp?

You did all you could do to diagnosis it being the center amp. Skip the amp and just buy a mid priced receiver. That's my recommendation.
