What did Amie and Noreen cook up this time?

If axiom keeps rewarding 10,000 posts everyone will just start posting nonsense in every thread...

I think that if there was a bunch of people spamming the boards with single posts they would put a stop to the free gifts... It's a nice enough gesture that they give gifts out for this so lets not ruin it \:\) By the time I reach 10,000 posts maybe I will get some M 120's or an EP 1600

I don't know why there is some expectation that Axiom will repeat its gesture. I looked at it as a one-off for the very first person to get to 10K posts: quite generous and a true surprise.

Seriously, though, just doing it once was amazingly kind of them. When I've been here long enough to reach 10,000 posts, I'll just be happy that I found a community online that made me want to stay that long.

Frankly, I had assumed it was just the first person as well, but I didn't want to lift my leg on anyone's Cheerios.

Amie's post seems to point out that I was wrong....

I don't know! I know how much they weigh (which I'm not telling, because one of you could look it up and tell me what they are), that they're in 2 identical boxes, and that my son could knock them over. Which puzzles me.

\:D If they came out with bobbleheads that would be cool, you could put them on the sub and watch them dance.

Without knowing the weight, my best guess is two boxes of these. I can't imagine a more rare gift from Axiom, and it's something they're sure you don't have already!

Im guessing it is a couple of ground isolators, some banana plugs, and a wrinkled t-shirt that someone returned b/c it was the wrong size. Congrats!

Absolutely, I've no doubt Axiom wouldn't send a gift like this without complete, thorough instructions.

First, an explanatory picture:



That's my left M80. Amie pays a lot of attention to all of our posts, so she knew of my current problems. So she sent me some spare woofers and tweeters, in these really neat boxes!



Oh wait... \:D

I knew you were going to say that.

Sean: I've listened to them for about 30 minutes, and I'm pretty impressed. It's necessarily at low volume, as my son is asleep, but they sound good, especially for how poorly placed they are (they didn't stay on top of the M80s).

I need to see the spines of your books more clearly.

And congratulations on the speakers. I'll probably pick up some M22s at some point for a bedroom system or something. You know, after all of the other necessities like 3 more subwoofers and the rear surrounds.

Actually no, the M80s and M22s didn't work together, too much midrange, IIRC.

Congrats Ken. Welcome to the M22 club.

The kitchen?? That's only like 20 feet from your M80s. I say keep them in the boxes so they'll motivate you to move into a place with better audio options. \:\)
