Sweet! Welcome to the club. Sounds like you have one heck of an audio system now!

Yeah. Now, I've got to get 2 pairs of M80's. I'm just not sure on how I'm going to mount them on my wall. smile

Duct tape silly!

Oh, congrats Julian. grin Try a movie with lots of low bass, like Serenity or the last Terminator movie, and you'll notice the sub is off. grin

Thanks for all the replies, guys.

I started my vacation only a few days after I received my Axioms. Now I am still out of Toronto. Although the trip is nice but I miss my system grin

Even after several years at enjoying our Axiom Mega Home Theatre, when on vacations, it is always the single thing that the entire family is looking forward to come back to.

I am back from vacation! Several days ago, I invited several friends to my place to experience the HT and all of them were impressed grin

How do you like the TX-NR5008? Does it Drive the M80's good, obviously it must be. cool
But I'm shopping around for a new processor and this model has a lot of good reviews.

Tom, especially if you're looking primarily at the processing features, the Onkyo 3008 would seem to be a more cost-effective buy. It's entirely up-to date, notably including Audyssey MultEQ XT32. An excellent buy at this time is the factory refurbished unit from Accessories4less . These units should be at least as reliable as one that's brand-new, and I've been entirely satisfied with them and of course the significant saving.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

I really like my TX-NR5008 which drives my speakers wonderfully.

From what I have learned, the major differences between 5008 and 3008 are: 1.Watts 2. DAC: PCM1795×6 (192 kHz/32-BIT) for 5008, PCM1796×6 (192 kHz/24-BIT) for 3008. Actually, I haven't found any model from other brands carrying such high end DACs like 5008 does. 3. Improved high current power supply. 4. gold-plated speaker posts. I agree with what JohnK has mentioned that 3008 is more cost efficient but if you have the budget, I would recommend 5008.

Highly recommended to purchase a projector to complement the home theater. I purchased Epson 8700UB and projects the image to a 119" screen. Paired with Axiom speakers, there are really no reasons to go to the theater (except 3D) any more if you watch movies or concerts in blu-ray.
