After nearly 12 years with my M80v2 and QS8v2, it was time to give v4 a chance at my fronts and surrounds. So onto M5HPs and QS10HPs. I'm giving separates a shot as well with an ADA-1000-3. If the M5HPs don't work out, there's always the M100s I suppose.

My gratitude goes out to Craig Chase for discussions over the last year about soundstage and to Andrew and Ian for helping me with the decision. They listened to my needs and gave me great answers and advice.

Someone will be very happy with my M80s and QS8s.

Very nice, Mojo! It'll be nice to hear your impressions. I ordered a pair of M5HPs myself with the recent promotion (from the Factory Outlet to save even more). I would have ordered two pairs if I had the disposable income at the time, just so I'd be set with direct-firing speakers for my eventual move to a full Atmos setup.

I'm going to try one of the M5HPs briefly as a center in place of my current VP180 just to see if I want to return to a vertical center. I used to use an M22, and while I felt pretty satisfied with it, I did notice the extra heft in the VP180.

Also interested in what you have to say about the ADA. I have a 1500-4 to run my LFRs and a 1000-4 with one channel not being utilized to run my center and two of the surrounds. I've been really happy with how clean they sound at any volume level I've tried, but my experience is limited to A/V receiver amplification and a brief amount of time with an Emotiva amp.

Ooh, wonder when they will appear in the refurb store? What colour were they? If cherry, I might pick them up :-)

That said, my trade-in's haven't appeared yet in the store or maybe they were picked up quickly :-)

Standard black oak. I expect they'll be back sometime in November. I put the order in for the M5s two days ago. BTW, yesterday I received an automated email telling me exactly what state my order was in and who's working on it.

It's my first experience with these emails, too. Yesterday, my M5HPs were in quality control, and today they were in the packaging stage. I assume they'll ship tomorrow!

Axiom is building a factory with a drone army. Ian will become the Bezos of all things audio.

So far, according to the automated e-mails, the drone named Moe has been working on my ADA, Mike on my M5 and John on my QS10.

The on-line store worked very well this time around and flawlessly applied all the right discounts for trade-in, etc.

The user manuals are so much better as well. It's great to see all this progress Axiom is making on so many fronts.

I was surprised how smoothly the online store handled everything... not because it had been bad in the past but because I had never thrown such a wierd combination of trade-ins and new orders at it before.

My cyber-security training re-programmed my brain neurons to never click on a link like your HRP-5P above. Especially since that link came from a tough-talking psychopath whose best friend is a .44 Magnum. smile

The only thing I was disappointed about was the lack of a choice in the trade-in drop-down for Totem Dreamcatchers.
