this would be both for at your PC, your TV(s) and 'listening space', if you have one.

also, does anyone here have any experience with Axiom's products? they're a Canadian speaker manufacturer and they've caught my eye.


in actually, there are quite a few speaker manufacturers in Canada.

I am a bit of a Paradigm fanboy so yes go Canada!

HT setup is currently Paradigm Millenia 30 LCR + my old Paradigm Monitor 7 v6 fronts as rears. Stole the original surround atoms for my desk. Amp is an Onkyo TX-NR709. Had this setup for a while and has served me well.

Desk is Paradigm Atom v2 with a Topping PA3 amp. Topping DX3 Pro as the DAC and headphone amp for my HE400S headset.
That would be my main listening space.

For NC and TV viewing when the AC is on etc. I have a set of Bose QC35 II which excel at that.

Yamaha RX-V485 and Stereo Sansui S-930c Towers. Running through my PC via Optical SPDIF at the moment (HDMI cable is too short since getting a new desk and moving the PC)

PC:
NAD D 3020
2 x Athena AS-B1 bookshelves

HT:
Pioneer VSX-832
Kef iQ6c center
4 x Kef iQ1 bookshelves
Have a pair of Kef iQ9's but one of the drivers needs to be replaced. Haven't bothered since I've had basement neighbours. Plus had issues sourcing the driver.

Tv: Onkyo 7.2 Dolby atmos with soundstage speakers through out. This will be my last Onkyo as the phone remote control apps don't work well.

PC: re-purposed Bose 2.1 with Logitech pro headset via usb. Less noise feed back on the usb port than plugging directly to MOBO.

I'm a long time Polk fan rocking a vintage set of SDA 1C towers, and then a pair of RTi A1s, and a pair of RTi4s powered by relatively cheap onkyo receivers. My better half doesn't really care so long as it's loud enough for movie viewing so the main HT setup is a Denon receiver powering a relatively mediocre set of Onkyo HT speakers.

Still running my Corsair SP2500 set, they've got to be nearly 10 years old now. It'll be a sad day when they finally get retired.

Controlling any AV via a touchscreen just don't make a lick of sense to me. It is almost as bad as having to use a touchscreen for HVAC in a vehicle.

When the kids lose the remote then it's handy 👍
It's easier to swap the sound output from music to theatre with the app too.

The other thing I didn't mention is the Onkyos are high powered receivers. Next time I'd go with a low powered reciever with an amp. Longer life better sound.

* Not exactly a Yamaha fanboy; the V385 was the best option that Costco had (at the time), I needed their return policy as, after moving into the new house, I had doubts as to whether the tower speakers were still practical.
