Yeah Bob, you don't need stands unless your super has a 'no holes' policy or something. But we're talking a few screw holes that can easily be spackled up if/when you move. If your super is pretty laid back about things then drilling a small hole right behind the wire posts on the back of the QS4/8's and running the wire down the inside of the wall and out a hole in the bottom (either in the floor board, or right above it) makes for a super clean look.... so clean, almost no wife could ever complain. \:\)

As for the M60's vs M22's + sub + stands... if most of your tv watching is actual tv and not a lot of movies, I would say M60's would be a very good solution for you. Easy to move around, practically full range, and very sexy to boot! If movies make up 25% of your intended usage or more, and you really enjoy the sound effects of blockbusters like 'Batman : Dark Knight', 'Ironman', and the like, then that's where a nice subwoofer really makes your system shine.

But for straight tv, or if you're more mellow when it comes to movie watching, then I'd say a pair of M60's is all you'll ever need my friend.

Totally w/ Micah. My ep500 was dead for a couple of days before I noticed it. The 60's did such a great job with everything that I only noticed the sub's absence when I was really crankin' CD's or BD's. And even then, it wasn't at all like the guts fell out of everything.

I'd do the M60's and a VP150 and put a sub on my wish list. It may be too much for your neighbors anyway. Even if it's a couple of years, you'll still be happy w/ the 60's when/if you do get a sub.

Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

You can find speaker stands from just about anywhere that will work with the M22s and they cost quite a bit less than Axiom's versions. I have used my M22s with a VP100 in a 3.0 scenario for just TV watching and it works great, makes it bearable to listen to. I am always surprised at how good the M22s sound on their own with out a sub. You only really need a sub for LFE in movies and even then only if you really want to feel the movie as well as hear it.

My suggestion would be to order the M22s and a VP100 try them out and add to the system from there. If you do not find the M22s satisfactory send them back and get the M60s. Axiom pays for the shipping when this is done with in the 30 day trial period, you just have to pay for the price difference between the M22s and M60s.
