Well well, i have to say that the new Axiom speaker finishes are great.
Extra cost, yes, but at least the selection is there. Grilles, matte, gloss and more colours for all 3 categories.

Just a couple of things:
1) can Axiom owners buy new coloured grilles for their existing speakers?
2) will someone post pics of the new speakers as they are wrapped in the new colours? (swatches are ok but never really show what they look like in real view)

I wholeheartedly welcome the broader selections of finish, now "official." Way to go, Axiom!

I have seen in other AV forums no less than 3-4 persons who really wanted the Axioms but could not get them because a color that meets WAF and other room-decor considerations was not available.

For those of you who do not subscribe to the AudioFile (you should now!), here is the swatches.

All I can say is WOW! Those are a great selection of finishes. Damn that high gloss blue ripple looks cool.

I should now have no problem getting a pair of M3's in Highgloss Birdseye Maple for the bedroom past the wife. Wonder what the odds of a pair of them suddenly showing up in the factory outlet store are...lol.

Nice work axiom.

Stunning idea, love the Blue Ripple, glad it made the cut.
I still would be happier if "nude" ie: plain old mdf were an option but you're never going to please everyone

Thanks for being the best!

I guess, as we discussed before, the inevitable next step would be to include some real wood finishes at an even higher surcharge.

That may somewhat diminish the steller cost/performance factor of the Axioms, but this whole thing also tells us that a large chunk of manufacturing cost may actually go to the finishes in those "expensive and beautiful" speakers.

Interesting... Would you want that MDF sealed, lacquered, oil finished? I suppose a purist might opt for the latter... don't want anything coming between you and the warmth of a natural wood finish.

Yowza - 25 finishes and we're *still* not pleasing everyone? Sigh. What could be more fun than blue ripple though?

If you're ever chatting with Joe, ask him about the student he has that airbrushes the speakers - stunningly beautiful work.

Any chance we could change out our speakers if we have ordered in the past couple of months? I ended up with the cherry since it was the closest to what would go with my room well, but I think that new Mansfield Beech would better. The cherry I have is quite a bit darker then the other wood in the room.
