You should see my bf's forearms. It's funny. His right forearm is literaly 50% bigger than his left. Tennis - not pot stirring.

This is great! Joe and I were talking about shooting all the custom finish boards with all the grille cloths - we have a fun new camera on order - but the interactive aspect is also a great idea! Axiom has a new staff member coming on board in November who's a bit of a pro at all this stuff, so expect neat changes like this to be coming through as soon as he gets used to the constant mandatory listening tests - oh, the torture! I will get this on his list - thanks for the suggestions! We also heard from Ryan that another speaker company who I won't link to also has great hi-res options. We've always been dial-up sensitive, but I think if you can click deeper and deeper into these options for more detail then we have the best of both worlds.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

If you are worried about speed for dial up users (ahhh, I almost can forget what that modem dialing noise sounds like it's been so long since dial up) you could do a low bandwidth and high bandwidth version, perhaps the low one will just have pictures, but the high one will have something where you can click on one speaker, then a grill and it puts it on. Click a different grill and it takes off the old and puts on the new one...something a little more interactive basically.

As someone who is considering purchasing a custom finish within 6-8 months (as soon as I pay some stuff off...), I'd love to see such a page. The only problem I see is the color calibration thing. Lemme tell you, the finishes sure look different between my PC and Mac (and yes, I've got the same type of monitor on both).

As a tangent, if I were to buy a system, and I wanted different finishes for the surrounds than the front/center, would that cost more? (I know, talk to Amie directly, etc...)

Thats why people should use the industry standard Digital Photography Gamma 2.2 calibration and properly calibrate not only the monitor settings but also the profile (in windows at least) with "Monitor Calibration Wizard."
