That brings back memories of trips to Europe where one could buy an exceptional bottle of wine for all of $7 a bottle. I used to take an extra suitcase whenever I went.

How did you pack them? We were nervous enough flying cross country with a few bottles of wine, never mind international.

One nice thing about working on a cargo plane is that our extra suitcase is a pallet. Plus being military we usually get to pick our port of entry so we make our first U.S.A. stop at a customs friendly port ;\)

i'm not sure if i'm more surprised at the first statement or the generous offer to have all these axiomites head north for a huge hosted party... \:D

Not to worry Mike, I already have a set being made, unless Sean decides you guys have pretty much ruined any hope of a future sale, in which case he might just drop Axiom from his line up.

Sean was good to his word in that he would send them for an audition free of charge to any forum member, that would be me, as I apparently contacted him first and I also have 2 other sets of M22s offered up by the other members here in Calgary to use as controls. I suspect all of your banter has made him have second thoughts on even pusuing Axiom as a client. He has not received this type of scrutiny from the many forum members at av123, granted they know him better than we do, but still he designed a crossover for their much loved Rockets and Ref 1's and they have more or less embraced the chance of a new sound from their much loved speakers. I can see where some will like the sound and others won't, but until any of us get a chance to hear some of the new crossovers we should be reserving judgement.

That dosn't surprise me. His behavior here has been pretty consistant.

I wonder. If a bunch of us would be willing to chip in, we could buy the network he is sending you and pass them on to Axiom. I would be willing to contribute $20-30 to the cause just to see how the measurements correlate with listening tests.

Yes, well said. A lot of what happened is a attributable to poor/sudden presentation and questionable choice of words (from all parties). I am certain he will duly take notes of this and learn from it for when he has a new "first contact" situation, which, hopefully for him will happen often in the future! \:\)

Everyone is waiting for the Calgary happening (don't drink too much or at least take notes DURING the testing so you remember the results)! And then let's see from there!
