Background - I've got a budget Panasonic reciever and two dirt cheap speakers wired upto it at the moment. I live in a small-ish apartment. My system use is 90% movies, 5% games, 5% music. I've got a small budget of around $250-300 for a speaker upgrade. I was contemplating getting the JBL-NSP1 set, but a good audiophile friend here has been raving about the Axiom speaker range, and is pushing me to get one pair right now, use the current pair I have as rears, upgrading them & filling in the 'blanks' as I can afford it. What's the general opinion on the Axiom M3ti speakers here? The reviews I've read elsewhere have been nothing but gushing about them, and they're certainly VERY keenly priced. Anyone picked up factory outlet speakers from Axiom? What were the "defects" like? Does my plan of one pair now, the rest in the future, sound like a good plan?
