Well, we are all finally back in our seats after the Consumer Electronics Show. Ian and I combined the show with a holiday, and drove the whole way! 12,000 kms when we came back through the door yesterday morning. A wonderful road trip - I recommend it to anyone with a comfortable car!

At the show, Ian received three awards:

Home Theater & Sound Product of the Year for the EP500 DSP Subwoofer.

He also received the SoundStage! Exceptional Value Award for the M80 v2.

Ray Adkins from Audioholics also presented Ian with their Product of the Year award for the Epic 80 v 600 Home Theater System.

We're so proud of the whole team at Axiom who made these awards happen!

It was my first time touring the show with Alan Lofft, and it's a fun experience. It was his 25th CES! Needless to say, he knows everybody. I'll leave the new product reporting to Alan in this month's newsletter. We met with some great people - old friends and new acquaintances - and I look forward to a few fun changes as Axiom moves forward this year. Stay tuned!

We left Christmas morning, with the intention of stopping for the night, but after a refreshing Christmas lunch with Brent, we ended up driving right through to Alberta - time on the road was about 32 hours. We left Alberta New Year's Day, and took two days to drive to Las Vegas. We left Las Vegas on Sunday and drove to Vail, and then did another around-the-clock from Vail to Toronto. The car was ridiculously comfortable for the Audi-ssey - the passenger seat reclines almost totally flat and is heated, so when it's your turn to sleep, you actually sleep!

It's almost magical being out alone at night in the prairies - just you and the long-haul truckers, and the big, big sky. Great memories include the sunrise chasing us across Montana forever (sunrise in Ontario is so fast in comparison!) and the strangest road noises I've ever heard on the highway at the bottom of Utah - I almost woke Ian up to tell him aliens were landing!! Strangest incident - getting hauled in by US customs for having 4 slices of salami in the car. Oh yeah, that's just like asking for a lovely white-gloved search. . .

Justly deserved praise! About time. Congrats to you and Ian, and everybody at Axiom. I'm very proud to be a part of the Axiom family, albeit a very small part.

I can't wait to hear all the crapola that will come from the Axiom detractors over at SVS.

Congratulations Ian, Amie and the rest of the Axiom family! You guys deserve the praises and awards for bringing high-end sound to the masses and backing it up with world-class customer service!

(and welcome back....and Happy New Year!)

And yes, there's a little tiny ribbon next to my subject line... my first ever!

Let me add my congratulations to the already stuffed coffers...

It is great to have those deserving of recognition actually receive it.

Well Done!

Congratulations to all at Axiom.

P.S. When can expect we expect a 300 watts x 7 Axiom amplifier for our Axiom speakers?

Big congrats in Order...

Amie - I recently did the road-trip from Vegas to Breckenridge. Southern Utah and the surrounding locales are certainly neat to drive through, especially at night, with the pedal to the metal, going 110 mph! The sky is so big and empty (except, of course, for the stars). We camped out along the way, and didn't do any sleeping in the car (neither my buddy nor I) - too busy looking at the world go by...

Glad you had fun on the road trip. Even more happy about the awards.

"Hide the salami" is supposed to be more fun than that!

Congrats on the awards, the fine products and great company. Hope you didn't lose too much cash in the one-armed bandits.

Your trip reminded me of an unpublished short story I wrote in college. I've always suspected someone from that class stole the concept and wrote the screenplay to "Breakdown"(?).

I reckon I can't complain. I've been fairly villainous my entire life.
I think the lady that created the Tony D'Angelo character (can't remember her name - never read one of the books) was in that class too. I mocked that name, said it made me think of Tony Danza, and she got all offended.

Good job Axiom!!!

I don't know about you guys but, have you noticed an increase of "newbies" in this forum just purchasing Axiom products?? I think they are getting more and more popular with masses now. I wonder if Amie or Ian has any data they can disclose on their business. I am sure it is going very well!!

I also wish everyone at Axiom the best and heartfelt congratulations.

A couple of new products coming out this year, yes, the first being the new Special Edition line announced in the newsletter yesterday. We will also be releasing a ceiling version of the FMB by April. And, if I am not saying too much, one of TomTuttle's longstanding dreams is in the works! All of that stuff will be released in the first half of the year. Lots in the pot, a few things almost ready to serve!!

Axiom doesn't show at CES because it is technically a dealer show, and, well, we don't have any!

A speaker with a built-in beerholder?

No, I'm guessing maybe a new center channel?

OH! Wouldn't a VP300 (or whatever it would be called) be sweet! 2 woofers with a tweeter above a midrange between them. Lovely! The computer speakers wouldn't be bad either.

Hey Amie, if you need any beta testers, I'm willing and able.

College kids can do anything they put their minds to. As for Tom. . .



Hmm, that kinda sounds like an insult to Tom. I'm only insinuating that Tom is not in college anymore--it has nothing to do with his mental capacity.

You guys crack me up. Geez, I do something else on a Saturday morning and look what happens. It was nice of you all to talk about me behind my back in public, I think.

As Mark demonstrated, I think that, with quite a bit of re-engineering, you could possibly convert a cabinet the size of an EP600 into a kegerator. However, you'd have temperature isolation and back-pressure issues. And, wel, you'd be encouraging people to actually drip beer on your subwoofer.

As much as it pains me to continue to encourage him, I think Peter is right. A long time ago, we had a discussion about Outdoor Speakers. It seems to me that the research done on the in-wall line probably led to some discoveries about how the Axiom sound could be effectively transitioned to a sealed enclosure for the patio. I'll publicly submit the unrealistic hope that Axiom is able to bring such products to market without outsourcing the entire manufacturing process.

I still think a VP300 or computer speakers would be the cat's pajamas.

Oh, Ken, I think since the Axiom Executive VP for Fun Stuff (Amie) specifically mentioned ME, that I should get first dibs on testing.

Watch it, folks, or we're going to have another of those "name the new product" contests. The last one seemed pretty stressful for everyone, especially Ian's mom.

I think the people with the highest post counts should be beta testers.



And, silly me, I think it should be the person who makes the Looooongest posts.

The beta testing should only be allowed...to the guy that has the cutest avatar.

Congrats to Axiom for what we already know, great products, people, and service!

I know its probably posted somewhere on the site but I'm already drinking beer, which means my mind is in lazy mode and not up to doing searches. When was the change from Ti to v2 made?

Thanks guys for supporting my weekend habbit.

Ti to v2?.....Hmmmm....

Let's see, if memory serves; when I "discovered" Axiom in 2000, it was just "Ti" but then in '01 the "SE" was added.

The "SE" stuck around for a couple years and then seemed to fade away without fanfare.(at least "I" managed to miss it!)

It appears then, that a number of changes have happened to the M80s crossover over the last few years to make somewhat of a change to what they were back in...oh...I dunno...01 or 02 or so? So now, to warrant a new "Soundstage" group review, they are now v2

The above summary may not be totally accurate, but it's sorta what happened.

I think
Rich.

Rich,
Thanks for the info.

I purchased my 80s in Nov '04. Would these TIs possibly be v2s? Gee, I may not want to know the aswer to that question...

Yes you're M80s are the newer version. The crossover was changed in 2002 I believe. A note from Alan on the M80V2
