I just need a different pre-amp or reciever. I want to go true 9. or 11. sooner than later.
I'm undecided if I'll run front heights or rear surrounds this time around. Think I'll keep the tweak freak in me busy with both.

You have the sickness that only job loss can cure. I have buyers remorse before any kit I order even arrives.

I look at it a little differently then most.
For all my working years I couldn't buy what I wanted.
A few years ago I was offered a career.
I starved the 1st year but am damn glad I stuck it out.
Funny you should say "the only cure" as we think we might be expecting our third child.
The screen room should be done just in time to start worrying about that...

Forgot to add some happy news...the boxes are a little beat up but they’re here.



Here hoping they're the only triplets in my near future.

My large VP160 carton arrived with quite a significant scar/hole on a bottom corner. The foam packing inside was very visible; however, the offending assault did not reach the speaker.

While it was sitting in the foyer overnight, my cats really took a liking to that type of cardboard & added significantly to the scarring, ha! Kudos to Axiom's fine shipping team.

Time to get dressed & start integrating that beast into my system...

Many years ago I had a large assortment of stereo equipment box's and speaker box's. I let a friend stay with me for a while and he had cats, they went apeshit on the cardboard. I suspect it just felt good smile Boredom is probably a factor. I know what you up against tam, I have to redo mine this weekend UPS permitting and im not really looking forward to it. There is just so many wires and no matter how hard I try to organize they seem to get together over night and tangle with each other. Some sort of cord sex.

There are certain types of cardboard that they really love to scratch & tear up. Others they won't touch.

Costco is a great source of cardboard boxes that I regularly bring home to replace the ones that they've had at. I have to be selective tho.

Alright, I have to get away from this keyboard & get at it....

I miss having a cat. I really don't want my boys to grow up and not experience new born kittens and all the good that comes with them.
For what ever reason cats and my wife don't get along. Maybe I should rephrase that, the cats are just fine its my wife who can't deal with cats that climb her leg or hide and attack her at random....Its a beautiful thing to watch, a good conversation starter or fight ender IMHO.
