I'm looking to get a set of speakers to go with my Onkyo TX SR-806. I like the Axiom Epic 50-350 and the Aperion 4T-CB systems. I was curious if anybody has experience with either of these systems, or has another recommendation. I was looking to spend under $3K.

I own the Axiom speakers, VP150 (center), a pair of M80 (left and right), four QS8 (left and right side and back surround sound), and EP800 (subwoofer) in my theater room and they are sah-wheet! I wired for another EP800, 2 more QS8, and another VP150. Hoever, I think with all the sound I get now I will never need them. I love them, I have had them since March 2006.

I've had my Axiom's for about 5 years and absolutely love them (M22ti's in front, VP150 center, QS8's on the sides, QS4's in the rear). Not only are they great speakers, but they're a great company to deal with. When I was first going to purchase them I called them up for suggestions and they actually talked me into spending LESS money than I originally was planning on spending (was going to get QS8's all around - but they told me it was overkill for rears in my room). How many companies will do that?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

The February issue of Home Theater magazine has a speaker review if you're interested.

Yes, but IIRC, neither of the brands he mentions were reviewed. Axiom, especially, rarely gets reviewed by magazines, mainly because they don't advertise in them.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
