    Can I get some opinions on these three systems.

    Fluance: sv-10 av-bp2 av-sc
    Axiom: m60ti qs8 vp-150
    Rocket: RS550 RSC200 RSS300

    with svs 20-39 pci

    Looking for new speaker system. Haven't personally heard any of these systems. Just recently heard about fluance on this website. Seem to be getting good reviews. Planned on spending about $2000 on speakers.

    Probably read some of my other posts. Was also looking at B&W and Swan, but their bipoles are 4ohms, and my pioneer elite VSX-45TX will only go to 6ohms. So, I've really narrowed it down to the Axiom or Rocket. Would like some helpful insight.

    Axiom and Rockets have different sounds. It will come down to a preference.

    What speakers have you heard that you like?

    Tom,

    I'm not exactly sure where El Cajon is but I know there are a lot of Rocket owners in CA. Try requesting an audition at audioenvy and/or the av123 forum. I'd try the Axiom forum to request an audition of their speakers.

    Tom,

    Alex is right....El Cajon is near San Diego, and there are Rocket and Axiom owners down there.

    I agree, you should be able to find someone that is close enough for an audition. They are very different sounding.

    Check the Axiom forum and audioenvy

    Also while it does not matter to some it does to others so here goes... make sure and check out the looks of each. One is made of vinyl veneer the other is true wood. This may not have much to do with sound but it can have huge implications in certain room settings.
