Besides Axiom is there any good speaker manufacturer that would ship outside USA and Canada? I think Ascend and SVS do. Have any of you guys compared the sound between them and Axioms?

Price (and thus sound quality allowing for diminishing returns at the high end).

For instance a pair of Revel Salon2 speakers costs $22,000.

In regards to Infinity and JBL products, the Infinity Primus line is probably the most well regarded among audiophiles for bringing value and performance. In both subjective evaluation and objective analysis. It is a very accessible line for consumers as well.

I was originally looking at a Paradigm Reference Studio 100 based 5.1 system. I never even got to hear it, so I don't know what I may not be missing. I was also looking at a Klipsch RF-63 5.1 system as well. I was able to hear a 2.0 system using the same mains somewhere, but it was way toooooo bright for my liking.

I am very happy with what I have. Now that a closer-to-M80 center is available, I've got upgrade-itis. It will have to wait....

This pic gives a good perspective on the sheer size of the cabinet.

LOL That's huge! Guess that just one speaker would be enough for my small room. LOL

I was looking at the PSB Imagine series before came across the Axiom. The 4ohms requirement of the PSB put me off and when I saw the Axiom and read the reviews of if, I just say " what the heck.." and buy it without ever hearing it at all...

Dammit Axiom ... see what you did. mad

Rick, that's quite a sacrifice....settling for "only" a 25 foot boat over the 32 footer! laugh

Of course, you could own some Revels and buy yourself a 12 ft dinghy instead!
