Any complaints as far as a purchase from the outlet store? Same quality, any problems experienced?
How much savings would you consider between A stock or B stock. The difference between the two, for me, is 75.00.
Suggestions.

I've had my M22s for over a year now. I bought them from the outlet store and there wasn't a detectable flaw and they have performed flawlessly.

If what you want is available in the outlet GRAB it! I've bought my QS8's, M22's, VP150 and M60's all from the outlet. I never found a flaw on anything but the M60's, and it was TINY. You'd really have to look hard to find it.

DAVEY, i used to have some pictures of the "flaws" on my QS8s that i grabbed from the Outlet but i have since taken them down.
I only ever found one small area near the back where the vinyl finish looked a little 'garbled'.
Other than that, the FO VP150 looked absolutely perfect.
I think someone made an error tossing that one into the FO bin.
It really is a great deal for 10% (or so) off the price.

I don't think it was a mistake, like I said, all of my "outlet" pieces have been awesome. They've just got some crazy anal retentive QA.

My VP150 is outlet and it has a amall black mark, possibly sharpie, on the side, very small and only visible when looking for it. My M22s are from the outlet and I have not yet found any blemish, they seem perfect!

So A savings of 75.00 would warrant a choice for the outlet pieces? I was concerned with quality in sound, not as much as PURE aesthetics.

Seriously, get items off the factory outlet if you can. Minor cosmetic flaws if any, and no way would Axiom send out a factory outlet item that had a defect in the sound (but if this did happen, I am sure they would take care of it).

Yes, I bought my VP150 and QS8s from the F.O. Maybe I've not been careful or anal enough, but so far I've been unable to find a supposed "cosmetic blemish" on any of them.

could just be a marketing ploy by axiom. only a few items listed on the fo page, but if you ask, items are in stock at the outlet at 10% off. the A stock pile to the B stock pile. make a sale even if it's for 10% less. a sale at 90% of the asking price is better than no sale at 100% of the asking price. we do it here if the final result is a sale.
