Just got the email announcing the shipping of my two new sets of Axiom speakers (M2 on-wall and M22 on-wall). Yes, my house has a lot of rooms! And I can't stand TV speakers!

So who can beat that?

1) 2xM80s, 1xVP180, 4xQS8 and 1xEP-800 in my Home Theater
2) 2xM2s and 1xEP-500 in the Salon
3) 2xM22s (on-wall) in the Family Room (soon arriving)
4) 2xM22s (to be moved from Family Room) in Reading Room
5) 2xM2s (on-wall) in Main Bathroom (likely to be moved later when I can take showers again)
6) 2xVP150s as mains in my Gaming Room
7) Audiobytes with EP-0 in my Office
8) Almost forgot: ADA-1500 8 channels in Home Theater
9) Winter jacket, polo shirt and baseball cap

Not bad, hey?
Anyone can beat that? laugh

Next: Eventually need some audio in bed room, but most likely will be the on-wall speakers from the bathroom. Most importantly, I need a subwoofer for the Family Room.

Oh! And everything has AirTunes access, which I can also use with SqueezeBox remote using AirFoil.


E = ((2M100 + VP180 + 4QS10)/(EP800 + EP500))^(ADA1500 x D2v)

I don't have a M80 alone setup. Since I listen to a lot of movies and pipe organ on SACD, even the M80 need a sub for the deeper notes (mine are combined to the HUGE EP-800).

But for less bass-heavy listening, the M22s alone are actually not bad at all.

To make a long story short (too late!), I am on the side of M80+sub vs M22+sub. (M2s + sub is a surprisingly good option too).

I can't beat you but I'm competitive, ha!

Retired gear - 2 X Ax2s (but still pristine after 20+ years)

All V3s, 11 total:

HT - 2 X M22s; 1 X VP100; 2 X QS4s (Denon AVR) - excellent!

Audio System #1 - 2 X M2s; 2 X EP400s (tube amp) - outstanding!!

Audio System #2 - 2 X M3s (Sony Receiver) - nice!

OK. I'll add my count to your bragging thread. This is not to make ME feel better, but to help YOU feel better about your collection. wink

1 VP180, 2 M60, 4 QS8, 1 VP150

So 8, yeah, that's it. Certainly not even in "the club" with just 8, but if you feel good about it, then I've fulfilled my purpose in sharing a ray of sunshine and sending it your way. grin

EDIT: If I add what I picked out for someone else to buy, then you can add:
2 M2 inwalls, 1 VP100 inwall, 4 QS4

That bumps me up to 15!

I might be a contender in the person buying the most M22's.

Total of 9 M22's, but currently only using 5 of them. 2 sold, 2 in storage.

+VP150, VP100, VP160, M2, EP350, 2 M3's for a gift, 3 QS8's.

Total of 19 Axiom Speakers.

Very impressive list, Eric! I'll bet your entire home sounds wonderful!

I can't compete. Only the 7 Axioms for me. I have several other two-channel systems, but I have accumulated many speakers over the years, I like variety, and I'm ... thrifty. Yeah, that's it.

I would like to hear more about this! How does it work?

How do you like your ADA-1500? Been thinking of getting one for my front stage (M-100s and VP-180 center).
