I'm losing patience, and that's causing me to stop researching, and go for the Axiom Epic master series. I'll be connecting to the Pioneer VSX-D912 100 watts per receiver. I'll be situating a 6.1 setup in a 12x16 room. I like the style of the Axioms, and the reviews have all been positive. System is used for DVD movies, Direct TV , and some music. However, the 1300.00 price might be a bit more than I'd like to spend. Is there a setup for about 800.00 that would equate to a similar quality the Axioms would give me? Is the 1300.00 fully justified? If so, then I guess I'll stop here. Whatever advice is appreciated.
