After literally years of delay, I FINALLY ordered my Axioms on February 9th (M22s, QS8s and a VP150). Part of convincing my sweet wife to agree to this was selecting a finish that would blend well with our log home. And, of course, the custom finish meant that it would take 10 (count 'em - 10!) business days for my speakers to ship. Those may well have been the longest 10 days of my life! At last I received the email Axiom that the shipment had gone out. Now the next phase of waiting has begun -- following the tracking on Fedex. I'm sure you'll all be happy to know that my speakers left Ohio this morning. Of course, it's still a long way to Montana but at least there's progress.
I know, I know -- I'm starting to babble. Well, what did you all do during that endless interval between The Order and The Delivery? I am So Anxious to hear these puppies in my great room I can hardly stand it.
Eager to join the ranks of Axiom owners, I am.

Congrats, whippersnapper! The wait for new audio stuff is excruciating, especially with a custom order due to the extra time. However, you will be so pleased once you finally get your speakers in the finish you wanted. After all, what's a handful of extra days compared to a lifetime of having speakers that sound awesome and are in a finish that makes your wife happy? Win/win!!

Checked your profile--as a coincidence, I listened to Peter Gabriel last night, So on SACD.

Welcome, Whipper.

Most of us just make nose smudges on the window facing the road while we're waiting.

And some - not all - are prone to making whimpering noises!

Congrats on the new setup! Take photos for us!

Check for shipping or tracking updates every five minutes, that always helps pass the time.

Welcome to the Axiom family, I am sure you will be pleased with your new purchase and the shipping takes less time than the special order does to make, you will have them in no time.................as long as the weather holds out wink

What finish did you end up going with? Or are you having them match exactly to something in your home?

I think, that Amie should start writing a "wife's newsletter", so that more significant others could have the same view that she does of stereo/HT related items entering the house.

This is from the Axiom Blog...

President's wife smile Defacto, that makes her an audio guinea pig, whose only request to the lab is to always run sample products in colors that blend in with the rest of her home! She considers herself the Audiobyte's Number 1 fan.



Also, what ever you do wind up doing with your time... do NOT look for other things to buy to "enhance" the experiece... like a pair of sub's, or a Plasma TV, or a set of HT reclining chairs, or well... you get the point....

Well......I was sick on the day that my speakers were due to arrive. I actually had to call work and tell them I was unable to come in that day...

Ah yes. The Axiom flu. It is a common illness around here.
