Instead of having to guess from the look of the outside, here is a picture of the Model T before the parts are installed. Brace yourself: it's baffling to us how some people think this speaker is anything other than a beast! That's a 1.5 inch thick front baffle and one pile of intricately positioned braces!

That is Zebra Wood and it is a real wood veneer. The Model T is available in both vinyl and real wood veneers. James just did not see any down side to giving people the option. There are also custom exotic woods available like this Zebra Wood.

I get almost irritated with the constant jabs I can find all over the internet. I'm reading the audioholics review of the Bryston Model T loudspeaker and this quote makes me want to punch someone in the face lol...

"This is simple because Bryston partnered with Axiom to create their new line. But just because they look similar, doesn't necessarily mean they are the same or maybe perhaps "similarly good"."

Ian, that Model T is a work of art.

Now let's see what direction the pre-judging, speculation & assumptions will take now...

Ian,
Any plans for a 3 way bookshelf similar to the Model T Mini?

Currently there is nothing in the way of a 3-way bookshelf lurking around the laboratory (except the Mini T of course, which recently moved beyond the lab.) Our attention has been on the Airplay speaker and the subwoofers. Once that schedule settles down a bit we'll see what people are interested in next for new Axiom models, with your suggestion now in mind, thanks.

No matter what axiom does or doesn't do certain individuals will continue to make jabs strictly because it is in their nature ,they love conflict.

Many speaker manufacturer's use the resonance of the cabinet as part of its sonic signature and said resonance is by design. In my opinion given the surface area and size of drivers the M80 doesn't require bracing. If I could hear this resonance I would be upset,but alas I cant,and seriously using an accelerometer to prove resonance is ridiculous.

Axioms are a fantastic value for what you get and if you don't like what's on offer their are more than enough choices to go around.
