    Excuse my ignorance, but why are some speakers efficent (ex. Axiom) and others hard to drive (ex. Totem)? Does the efficiency of the speaker have anything to do with sound quality? Or should it only be considered in deciding on what receiver to get?

    As one newby to another, I'd highly recommend reading the newby introduction on the site. It answers those basic questions. You can find the link in the second message on the 'Basics' page. I can't post the link here, I'm apparently too much of a newby.

    Efficient speakers are just that they take less power in watts to create sound compared to another speaker... a good example of an efficient speaker is Klipsch. They take very little power to get up to reference levels and they will usually make your ears bleed before they start to become distorted. But like Donald said, you should check out the whole introduction found on here to answer most of your questions you might have.
