Hey Mojo, I purchased 4 M3 InCeiling speakers to set my room up for Atmos/DTSX and another pair of M22 OnWalls. I already had a pair of M22 OnWalls from years ago. I am trading in my Qs8s frown which will be replaced by the 22s that will be mounted lower. I also had a pair of bookshelf M22 I traded in as well.

Ian and Debbi treat me really good, that's not something I forget it either and something I preach to others. And, now that I have some real wood axioms......oh my god their gorgeous. Never under estimate how much nicer real wood is. But, all my theater speakers are black, so I'd have to replace them all if I did that. I might be divorced soon...



YOLO dude. I too have those feelings sometimes but honestly I cant find anything I don't like about my Axioms so I don't know what I would even look for. You cant miss what you don't know your missing. And yeah, real wood is the shit. I veneered all mine and I just sit and admire them sometimes, bad to do during a movie.

Ever put much thought into tuning your room Newf? Whole other Avenue of the hobby opens up.

Well, I have never been happy with my Vp150. I have a older one, from 2004-5? And my QS8's were great for 5.1/7.1 but for Atmos they need to go.

My Subs are fine. So the only thing left is the fronts (M80's). If I'm going to do an entire swap, now is the time. As for room treatments, don't get me started. But yes, very very important.

Yeah, I started with the VP100 and was never happy with that so I built a VP180 and it is fantastic though I have never heard an actually VP180 for comparison. I totally hear what your saying, but the front L+R are typically the most expensive and selling second hand typically is not a positive experience. If I were goin to change brands and cash was not an issue I would be looking at KEF or possible Paradigm though I find their visual design a bit garish. Myself I am a long way off from atmos , I find the QS8's are quite impressive. These are good decisions to have to make, better than which furnace or hot water tank should I buy.

quick question, with the trade up, I never done it before, I want to trade my qs8's for on-walls m3's. Do I put quantity in as 1 or 2?
