Well the wait is finally over, my axiom's shipped today and i have unpacked the goodness. At first I was shocked at the craftsmanship as the speakers were beautiful but also felt very solid. I placed everything where it needed to be and waited for the UPS guy to bring my SVS sub. After everything was here I ran the audyssey(sp) setup. The details you can pick up from music is quite impressive and i can say some Dave Mathews live at central park was a great test to what these guys can reproduce. Then it was on to the DVD Pulse by Pink Floyd. All in all i am really happy with everything and wanted to say thanks to everyone on here as i haven't posted much but have been reading for quite some time. Oh yea BTW I thought i was disappointed with the SVS sub UNTIL i played a real DVD, it shook everything in the house.

Congrats, Nashvegas!! That's the best feeling when you get all your new gear and fire it up for the first time.

Happy listening!

Dave Matthews Live at Central Park is a staple in my home. I am so used to the songs from that lve album I can't even listen to the studio recordings of songs like 'Gray Street', 'Ants Marching'. 'Warehouse', and many, many others because they just don't compare to the recordings on that CD (set)!

Of course we go camp out at the 2 day DMB concert at Verizon Wireless Center in Noblesville, Indiana every summer, so I'm entirely too used to hearing his songs live anyway. About the only studio recorded song of his that I really like anymore is 'Satelite', and maybe 'Everyday'... the rest have to be played live or they just don't have the same feel to them. He's such a grove doctor during his concerts that to me they just flow so much better live, they seem a bit stiff when they record in a studio, IMO.

But enough about Dave, congrats on your purchase my man!

Glad to hear things are sounding good and it sounds like the sub is dialed in pretty well as it shouldn't be all that noticeable till truly called upon. \:\)

Excellent! Congratulations!

Give it a bit of time, then try turning off Audyssey's EQ settings and see what you think...
