Tesseract - Would you like to spend some time with these guys when I am done? You have a great set of ears, and a review from you would be most helpful.
They sound like winners and I'd love to spend some time with them. Currently house-hunting and hope to have a dedicated listening room for review purposes.

I'll reach out to you should it happen soon. Thanks for the offer, Craig!

We are getting close to wrapping things up here. The 81's continue to impress, especially for a hand built, American made speaker selling for $540. I have fired up a variety of discs from Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Mozart and even Bob Seager. About a week ago, the Axiom EP800 was added to the mix, with a 40 Hz crossover being the best sounding option.

When I get a couple of free hours, a full review will be posted.

Well Craig, you've had a couple of free months - what about it? :)

Wayne - My business life has been insanity. Nothing bad - just really busy. I can tell you these speakers are absolute gems, especially for $540. I will get the complete write up as soon as possible. Their next destination will be in my son's guitar recording studio.
