Good call! e.e. cummings comes to mind.

It was only an observation, JB. Google the poet, e.e. cummings, then notice the "arrangement" of the lines on and across your post page, the lower cases, etc., and you may see the visual similarity to his work (and that of his successors) that Ken was astute enough to pick up on. (...astute enough upon which to pick????)

yeah, i just did that and noticed it.
had never even heard the name of this poet.
poetry is not my forte, it's more like the musical symbol "pppp";
(just don't pronounce the first 2 letters only if there's no hurry).

as regards the lower cases, that's only because i'm very lazy; like sometimes i stop blinking my eyes for a while, being energy conscious...a propaganda and fashion victim 100 %.

Happy New Year JB and all! I am glad your QS8's have settled into your system nicely. Was it simply calibration and listening time that changed your opinion from the above earlier post?

I spent most of the holidays at my in-laws who have a nice HT system that I built for them (Paradigm and SVS), but it was sooo nice to get home to my system where everything just sounded that little bit better to me. I don't know if it's because of my room or other factors, but I really do notice how much more enveloping my QS8's are than the Paradigm surrounds at my in law's.

Cheers,

just reread the next line after the one you quoted, where it's written:
"first thing tomorrow early morning, i'll redo the calibration."

my system was calibrated for other speakers; that's why the sound was not good and i had to redo the calibr.

as for the opinion i have of them, you can read my post on the preceding page.
my satisfaction for all the Axiom speakers i have is a solid "excellent".

Yes, I read all the posts and was happy to see the QS8's lived up to your M80 experiences. Good to know it was just calibration. QS8's are what 1st lead me to discover Axiom in the 1st place - I have been very pleased with my purchase too! Just wish I could find a place to add M80's. One day....
