i wait all day for my speakers, then they get delivered at 7pm. Of course, I'm working overnight shifts all this week, I didn't get to play with them tonight, I did unpack them.

the only casulty was the grill for one of my T60's. Two of the balls broke off in the sockets (keep it clean). I'm guessing this will be a simple fix/replacement issue.

They look sharp. I'll post some pics. I got the "In-cabinet" versions of the M60's for my entertainment center build that's coming up. I couldn't really find much info on them, not even here, so I'll try to post my noob impressions when I get them hooked up. As you can tell from my sig, the media room is not quite ready, but I was able to pick up an Onkyo 3007 on sale at Newegg, and given their 30 return policy and the Axiom 30 day policy, I figured I need to get them at the same time and try them out.

But without any coaching, my 5 year old, who as far as I know has never really seen a speaker, walked in the room with an instant "Wooooow, cool dad. I can't wait to watch Bolt!!!" He makes me proud. It must be something in the DNA that attracts us to speakers.

I figure the opening action scene from Bolt will be a good place to start, then after they go to bed some more intense stuff.

Doesn’t it suck to just get something and have to go to work. Just happened to me last week with my projector.

Definitely give us a review since I don’t recall anyone else posting their impressions of them yet.

AFIK, you are the first person to let us know you have some and quite possibly you are the first person with a set of retail T60's.

The sales guys said they have been "very popular." I'm always a little skeptical, but I couldn't find any posts about them anywhere. Who knows.

I'll be happy to post some pics. today (if I can get around to it) they will be strewn about my current living room, with the reciever on a chair, the macbook on a chair, and the center below my wall mounted plasma. It's a big, open, vaulted room. If the speakers can cut it in there I know they'll be fine downstairs. At least I get to play with it. I also need to put in a couple of 2x4's where the shower is being installed before the drywall guys get too far down the road... and then sleep for another night shift- but the weekend is off- NCAA football all weekend.

Man, I think I'm most excited about the sub...

Do you have an echo problem with your vaulted ceiling?

I don't know. Probably. We have a speaker bar under the tv with a wireless sub. It does okay. This will just be a test run to be sure all the equip works. I will get stuff Installed in the basement when the drywall is done.

I'm also excited to see what you think about them once you have a listen. As Jay said, I'm not aware of anyone, at least on the boards, that has the 60's Cabinet version....

I know many an Axiomite who has called in sick in situations like yours.... I was fortunate that after waiting 12 weeks (yes, 3 MONTHS) for my factory outlet speakers, that they were ready for pick up at the FedEx location about 15 blocks from where I was working, and they called me about an hour before my work day was over, so it was an easy pick up for me and I had time to go home and play with them...

I was in Turkey when my FO order arrived. However, nice thing was I had a week of leave coming when I got back. \:\)

I specifically looked for a house with either vaulted or 10’ ceilings. IMO it really improves the ambience having the extra vertical space. Though I’m not sure about really high cathedral ceilings.
