EFalardeau if i wrote to Noreen it was according to the previous Ian's mail i saw. Here is what Noreen reply

Hi Phil,

Your order would have had V3 components all that you would have is the magnetic grilles and the white cones.

Thanks

Noreen


So i dont really care about the white cone like i said but those magnetic grilles... i wish i had them since i dont have grill on. I also have the high gloss finnish so...

Philippe, while I understand your disappointment on one level, I also feel that it's the reality of buying anything that involves electronics or technology. There's always an update around the corner.

Some companies announce updates well in advance in the hopes of stealing other companies' sales and other companies realize that if, for example, they say "Hey, everyone, there's going to be an improvement to our product line next month", sales of their current product would immediately fall off a cliff. Axiom did the best across the board: Gave some of those improvements to those who ordered months ago.

Glass half empty: You wish you had the magnetic grilles

Glass half full: You got the updated V3 components and performance, though you purchased what you believed to be a V2 item.

If you are still not satisfied it can't hurt to call them and talk to a person(s)

I do not complain about my current speaker. Actually they are pretty amazing. And if i bought from Axiom it was for mainly 2 reason. First it's a made in Canada and second for thier great customer service. Having say that, i am not so disappointed since Noreen reply, in fact that was the respond i was hoping for.

If the magnetic grilles are really important to you perhaps a phone call might yield some results with a return and new speakers en route as you are only a month outside the 30 day policy. It couldn't hurt to ask. \:\)

And if you're like me and bought the v2 two years ago.

Glass completely empty: refill with favourite beverage, put on tunes, sit back, relax and enjoy. ;\)

I have been looking for an excuse to upgrade my system that will be 3 years old in november.

However, In reality this will all have to wait until I buy a house. Please stop coming out with things I want until I have moved into a new house and stopped paying rent!

Kudos to Axiom!

Oh yeah, how much have the QS8 speakers changed?

Fun. I used the trade up program and added all of my speakers (m80, ep500, vp150, and QS8s) and added the new m80s, Qd8s, vp180, and ep800 into my shopping cart.

I needed to purchase more to get the full trade up value so I threw in an A1400-2 amp. $7500 worth of gear for $5000 with the trade up.

Another option would be to keep the ep500 and dump the amp out of the cart.. this gives me about $4900 worth of gear for $3300.

Or, I could keep the ep500 AND get the A1400 amp and get get $7500 worth of gear for $5600.

My how easy it is to fill up a virtual shopping cart :).
