Those used EP500's are looking mighty tempting.
I'd really like the 400's, about 4 of them.

It really has been popular. Steve has been working on automating the trade in process, which currently we have to do manually, so that customers can do the entire trade-up transaction online in one step. It should be ready in the first part of April. We are hoping this generates lots of trade-ins for the Refurb Store.

Does Axiom track the number of sales to date from the trade up program and are you willing to provide the #?

One can only assume its been quite a hit, every time I think to look there is another incredible deal to be had.

What possible good would it do the company to publicly disclose something like that?

Ditto. That is confidential corporate info I would think.

I am most pleased with my latest purchase (a pair of magnificent EP800s) from there...

I don't think it would be any hit to Axiom. Buy back an older piece of equipment for a smaller amount. Check it over and then re-sell it for a larger amount. Someone trades in, they are buying a new product that generates more production. They get a newer speaker, perhaps a few models up and get a discount on the new purchase without the hassle of trying to sell their old speakers.

People who are on the fence can buy a speaker at a lesser cost who probably before would not buy at all or from some other vendor. They get to buy with confidence that the referb speaker is in factory perfect condition and not buying somenone elses problems.

Every new customer they get means a broader product awareness and new advertising through word of mouth referrals.

Heck, it it wasn't for the b-store and referb, I wouldn't have any new speakers. They now have a very happy customer who is showing all his friends. win win win.
