Hi, Jac; welcome to Axiom. First, in the "Hearing Things" forum check the beginning of the Audition post for a list of owners in BC who've indicated a willingness to host an audition(some may no longer be active). You might try making contact by email or PM. Another possibility would be to contact Axiom directly to see if they could lend any assistance.

Hi Everyone, I have a bit of a dilemma, I am building a 7.2 system 80-500-180 or 350 not sure which yet and was originally looking at adding 4 Dolby Atmos ceiling speakers. I have since decided to change things up and go Auro 3D in my speaker placement. Auro uses up high fronts, L,R center and up high above the side surrounds to give that third layer of sound as well as one speaker directly over the sitting position (VOG).Here is where my dilemma comes in. Would you in the know recommend going with M22's for side and back surrounds and QS8's for above or the other way around? I am 50/50 on music/movies and like my 2 ch stereo as well as multi-channel music. My thought is that if I used the QS8's up high I might get additional effect by tilting because of the top firing speaker as well directing more sound to the listening area. Now my brain hurts....lol

Hi Again , another thought has come to mind, if I were to switch to the M100.s from the M80's as part of the HT 80-500-180 pkg, would I still need the subs????? So many questions! lol. Have a good day everyone!!!

For music, I never use my ep-500, just the 100's. For HT, ya, you want the sub, or two.

I have a traditional 5.1 (.2?) setup & I use a pair of M22V4s (L&R) & a pair of EP-800s for my HT for both movies & music. Very impressive.

A couple of EP500s would certainly work for you as well.

Thanks Tam! Would you know the difference between the M80HP and the M100's?

I went with Sats & Subs systems a couple of decades ago so I have no experience with Axiom floor standers. For me, there is no reason to use floor standers as the M22s are so stalwart for mids/highs & they blend seamlessly with the powerful EP800s.

On our BC Day long weekend, I got into the sauce a bit & fired up Eric Clapton - 'Live in Hyde Park' DVD on my HT system & tortured my wife & daughter with it til the wee hours, ha!. I hadn't previously heard it with the EP-800s in the mix. They added a whole new sense of smoothness & low end to this live concert that I hadn't heard before.

For Clapton fans, 'Live in Hyde Park', despite its age, is still the best IMO - same concert that I saw in Vancouver several months later...
