Thanks to everyone here for helping thus far in my quest for a HT set up. The vast knowledge and experience here is indispensible. OK, the boss has set my speaker budget at $900 US. I can get a Paradigm Titan, CC-170, cinema ADP, PDR-10 set up for that amount. At the same time, I can't discount the numerous accolades for the Axioms that I have read. Problem is, I can't get a full 5.1 set up from Axiom with this budget. Do I get the full Paradigm 5.1 system or get the M2i/M3ti, QS4 and 100 series center now from Axiom and save for a sub? I read that the Axioms are more comparable to Paradigm's studio series which is far up the chain from the performance line. From what I gather, the Axioms are more speaker for the money with a comparable sound. Is this correct?
