Ah, yes, they are very, very popular for HDMI cables. Highly recommended by many people. I myself don't have HDMI, so...

On for me. I think Paradigm designed their speakers to have the grilles on (I think for dispersion). To me, the Axioms sound exactly the same with them on or off, so it's just a matter of aesthetics.

I just bought a 10 foot 1.3 HDMI cable from monoprice a couple of weeks ago for like $5 bucks.

The thing is built very well and works perfectly.

Also, I don't notice a difference in sound with the grills on or off.

That's what I'm talking about. I think I paid around $55 at Ultimate Electronics a few weeks ago but I did get 'em to knock about $420 off the receiver I wanted so I guess I came out ok, but still I'm getting the rest of my cables at monoprice \:\)

Keep in mind I had to pay for shipping, so it came to about 8 or 9 bucks total. It arrived in like 2 or 3 days too!

If I were you I would think about taking that HDMI cable back to Ultimate Electronics and buy one from monoprice!

what receiver did you get?

I got the Denon 3808. Since I bought it all together I guess I'll keep the cable this time but they won't get me again \:\)

I noticed your O-State avatar and had to go figure out how to get mine up there

And they probably still made more money in margin off the cable than they did off the receiver.

Probably did even though I had found the 3808 on the Internet a couple of hundred dollars lower than what I paid at UE but I was concerned with the "authorized dealer", delivery (waiting) and all thet cr*p. I also listened to speakers there. Klipsch, Mirage and some others I can't think of off the top of my head and I just didn't like the way any of them sounded.

They took me to a surround environment with the Klipschs and tried to sell me by playing the damn things so loud that you can't really distiguish music, sound effects, voices etc. so I had to pass. Loudness doesn't make it sound good but if it sounds good you can probably play it loud ;\)

The denon 3808 is a very good receiver. Tons of options, the internet radio, streaming network ability, GUI, and robust amp make it one of the best receiver on the market at its pricepoint in my opinion

Not sure what you paid for it, but it can be purchased from 6ave.com for $1098 with no taxes or shipping fees. 6ave is an authorized dealer by the way.

I have the 3808, m80's, Qs8's, vp150, and ep500. you will love your axioms!

oh yeah,
I am ready for football to start!
