My order arrived today (2xM60, 2xQS8, VP150) and the break-in process has begun -- my back will never be the same smile

I haven't hooked everything up yet, but here's hoping my ancient Onkyo HTR500 proves to be inadequate and needs immediate replacing. haha

Enjoy. I have a nearly identical system (swap out the 150 for the 100 and substitute the HTR500 for a SR508) and love it. I am sure you'll have the same experience.

Make sure to post a few pics of your setup for us to ogle.

Keep in mind there is NO break in period, unless you are referring to your back.

Enjoy your new toys Sami. Are you using a subwoofer?

Sami, welcome. I suspect that soon you're going to have both good news and bad news. The good news will be that the Axioms sound great; the bad news will be that it means that your 500(100 watts/channel)is plenty for them if it's still in good operating condition. It's unlikely that you'd need a new receiver on the basis of power capabilities, but replacement to get more up-to-date features may be another matter. Enjoy.

Congratulations, Sami. Once you get things set up and do some critical listening, make sure to give us your impressions.

yeah, the break-in was my back. today was my toe smile

no, i didn't buy a subwoofer, no money (for now hehe )

My thinking on AV receivers is to buy the lowest cost model which has the inputs you need, it seems a new interface always comes out each month

Interestingly enough, Onkyo support's email read,"Honestly with these speakers when using this receiver will be under powered"

as for feedback, at my age and (poor) listening skills, let's say everything sounds amazing smile

had a flash back to elementary school for a sec, "sami! you have poor listening skills!" me: "huh?"

Yes, that email is interesting in that it appears to make no sense.
