My order is enroute. On Wall mounted M22 FL FR and VP100 along with a pair of QS8's. I am so excited to get them setup. Currently will use my HK 240 avr and Infinity HTIB sub.

Will soon upgrade sub to probably a Rhythmic f15 and the AVR down the road to a Denon 2112 or 2312. What do you think of my plan?

I have recently started listening and enjoying music again. I had forgot what good music sounds like. Then we bought a new Genesis with the Lexicon stereo and it has reminded me what good music sounds like.

Welcome. I think that you will be very happy with both your purchase as well as this forum. It is a great source of non-biased help on just about any topic audio or otherwise.

Thanks, bought the paintable ones for the WAF, so will paint and hang shortly after their arrival. I do have a 2 ch system upstairs that I rarily listen to. A ADCOM 5400 amp with Klipsh KG 5.5's that sounds pretty good. I also have a couple of old Carver cube amps sitting out in the shop I need to use again some day.

Craig, welcome. Yes, your Axioms will certainly provide the way to enjoyment of great music. The f15 sub should provide a similar step-up in quality and bass extension.

The 2112 and 2312 would both be fine receiver choices and you might also consider the Onkyo 709, which would probably be one notch up from the 2312(including pre-outs if you'd want to use the old amps you have).

Welcome, Craig.

I think you will really enjoy that setup, and I like your plan.

+1 to what JohnK and Nick said.

Unless you need the features (processing, switching, etc.) I'm not sure you're going to HEAR a lot of difference between the HK240 and a newer model receiver. I do think the Onkyo 709 is a marvelous bargain, though, especially when bought as a refurb from shoponkyo or accessories4less. Definitely get the sub first.

Thanks,

Im very excited to get the speakers. However there was/is a slight glitch in my order, I guess the center and surrounds shipped are the wrong ones. They have sent the correct ones and I will send the others back. THe FL FR should arrive today. Hopefully the right center and surrounds will arrive this week as well. Then the sub will be ordered pending approval from my financial mgr (wife:)

This past weekend, I moved my adcom and Klipsh setup out to my man cave room attached to my shop. It sounded great and will finally get some use again.

Forgot to mention above, no bad feelings about shipment problem. I understand Stuff Happens. I am sure once received and hooked up I will forget all about it.
