hopefully in a few weeks we will also find out what that price is for? Do you get the battery with that or is it a base price + extras? I hope they put out all the spec's including the sound profile graph. The biggest question is how it sounds.

I really envy you guys that have the opportunity to go to these blind tests and sample some of the best/popular stuff out there. I'm too isolated here.

It is certainly a preference thing. I personally can not look at a LCD anymore. I purposely bought a f8500 last year knowing that plasma's were being phased out and I was afraid my existing Panny Plasma would not make it to the time when affordable

I will definately post pics. I'm planning a " never before seen" HT/ Bar build to turn some heads lol. I've been stuck at AVS for a long time. I promise to contribute to the Axiom forum a lot more. Thanks again for the advise!

One of the things we wanted in the name was to get the exact URL and AxiomAeris fulfilled that requirement.

Thanks Serenity. I am leaning towards the VP160 now. Makes a tiny bit more sense to have a horizontal speaker firing towards the listeners at that elevation during a movie. If you placed a middle M60 for a centre channel, the lower drivers will be ai

That is very interesting. I never would have thought it. I really need to do more reading up on the Dolby PLiiZ. I will have to see my Marantz AV7005 handles that mode when playing back items encoded in DTS as that seems to be the vast majority of

You are correct, JC. With front height speakers, we are talking ambient material that is NOT hard-mixed in the mixing theater. The QS-8 or QS-4 will always deliver very effective ambient reinforcement and even specific hard-mixed sounds when required

I am currently using my M3 as front height, in a 7.2 tried as rears. But find more sound stage with them as heights. Have M22 as front VP160 center M3 surround Don't have any of the Qs yet

I had never heard of this "movement" -- good name for it. The author does a very nice job deconstructing it. The important thing is relative relationships between frequencies, not absolute frequencies. And there is certainly nothing

We are planning on having the final look for the UI done in the next two weeks and I will post a link to it so everyone can see the functionality. It does include the ability to group rooms together to form a zone. The price will be $799.

They dont do it because pans across the front soundstage arent as smooth when the tweeters are not at the same height. Placing the CC above the other tweeter heights may reduce the seamless presentation and increase the likelihood of timbre matching

I should have included a bit more info maybe. I will be listening to lots of two channel music where I will have my L/ R speakers flanking outside my screen on a front stage. Most likely the listener will be myself in the sweet spot in the front row

I would not use QS8 or QS4 speakers for heights. The QS8 make a great ambient non directional sound for surrounds. The do such a great job that the rear set of speakers don't seem to get much use and our ears are not all that good at locating sound

I will have the option to use an existing horizontal CC or lose my rear surrounds in favour of having three matching towers behind the screen. This will give me a bed of 5 vs 7 channels. I'm tinkering with the idea of doing this and moving the CC

Perhaps I am off base and just not knowing.. But if you have an issue with the tweeter for the center speaker and the second row, would you not have the exact same issue for the Left and Right speaker also? The Center is not like a Sub where you

Not surprising, but here's a musical concept I had been oblivious to. Hertz So Good? 432Hz Examined.
