with the 31's arriving in less than a week, and no official "get ready you all" from the site should I still believe what I've been reading for a while that the VP180 is going to be released on Monday or Tuesday of next week?

Yes, I know i'm new here but i've never seen anything officially released by Axiom on the center, just what's here at the forum. I couldn't even find a press release about it from them. is thsi the way Axiom always does it, not saying anything and then the thing just shows up available and for sale? Thats's fine if that's the way. I've been wanting to buy the M80's & the EP175 but have been holding off waiting for the "rumored" VP180, i only used the term rumored because i can't find anything official from Axiom.

I do hope this is not going to be another UMC-1 thing (that's not a crack at Emotiva either but a truth about how long it took for it to finally be released after almost 2 years of waiting) as far as the actual release goes. I really do want this center (as well as the other speakers mentioned) but, since i'm not a VIP member or a previous owner, i have nothing else to actually go on about the center other than what has been posted here. i'm also concerned because this thread has been very quiet considering this incredible new addition is supposed to be released in one week or less.

I'm trying to keep the faith but so far for me not a word from Axiom themselves on their site is a little bothersome for me. I'm hoping that in a week or so, I'll be able to laugh after seeing the speaker up for sale and reading the stellar reviews from owners start to pour in.

Axiom doesn't do "vaporware"

The VP180 was announced to the owner's club members to allow them to pre-order. Don't quote me on the specifics, because I haven't noted them, but I believe the "release" is in a week or two.

Hi solardadd,

I wouldn't worry about anything regarding the VP180. Like MarkSJohnson noted axiom does not do vaporware. As far as hype goes Axiom does not really take part in creating forum hype of their products, their staff have much more important things to do like running a business so it fires on all cylinders at all times instead of wasting productivity through creating viral hype of products on the forum. They let their products speak for themselves.

All the hype comes from the owners actually owning the product and only 1 individual has this speaker. They also do not create hype of their products "in development" and make promises on release dates unless the product is completed and is up to their specs and standards. Therefore you will see much less "hype" than what you are use to over at EMO.

IMO, Axiom takes a much different approach than EMO and is a much more competently ran business because of it. You will never see a debauchery such as the UMC-1 for example from Axiom.

Salardadd, the best course of action for you would be to send an email through Axiom's expert advice support mentionning that you would be interested in the VP180 as soon as it is available and go from their answer.

The Owner's club newsletter simply states the VP180 will begin shipping on May 31, this would be for the May preorders. I would guess this might be the date it could show up on the products page for sale to the public.

Or...you could just pick up the phone, call the toll free number and speak to someone instead of relying on information found in the world of on-line conversations.

Oh, it's coming alright \:\) You can always call or email Axiom direct, or just wait until June since it's so close now.

I can attest that it is not vaporware.
