Well, after months of debate, I just placed my order for an Axiom 5.1HT. I purchased:
M80V2 fronts / VP150 center / QS8 rears / EP350 sub

They are black in color (believe it or not, it was the only color my wife would let me have -- I wanted maple).

I will be driving them with my Emotiva XPA-5 (200 WPC)and a denon receiver as a pre/pro (my Emotiva UMC-1 is on pre-order). They will be paired with my new Pioneer PDP-6020FD 60" plasma. This system will be 75% HT, 20% Wii/Xbox 360 / 5% music.

I will post pics once I have everything set up (hopefully next weekend).

I want to thank all of you on this board for the advice/info that you post as well as Brent and John at Axiom for answering all my questions and setting up "special" eBay auctions that allowed me to maximize my "" cashback bonus for ebay/paypal transactions. BTW -- doing these all as separate auctions to maximize the cashback from allowed me to pick up all these speaker for right about $2K even after the cash back -- an even greater deal than the everyday fabulous deals Axiom always offers.

Thanks again to all.

Welcome Michael, and congrats on your purchase. The next couple of weeks of waiting will definitely be trying, but before you know it, you'll be in audio nirvana!

Welcome to the Axiom family. In case you haven't been told, pictures are a must once the new system arrives and is setup. \:\)

No, but that hasn't stopped me from opening the front door every ten minutes to look and see if they are here.
