    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.

    You could try the Rocket ELT package. I don't think it will be as good, but I believe everyone that says it is a great value. For more than $800 you could try 5 Axiom M3tis and a Hsu STF-2.

    I agree with Keith. For speakers, that is $1300 well spent.

    But since HT is less demanding than music, you may be OK with spending less.

    Can you tell me what Hsu STF-2's are?

    I am a newbie, sorry.

    However, I do intend to make a speaker choice a rather lasting one. So I guess I'm willing to go for a few dollars more, and treat them as an investment.

    The Hsu STF-2 is one of Hsu Research's new subwoofers.

    If you go with the Axiom package, many folks leave out the Axiom sub and get a Hsu sub.

    Visit the forums/boards on the Axiom site. A lot of good information there.
