I just ordered samples but I'm still curious. Does any one have Axioms in black lacquer and how do they compare to other speakers you've seen with the same finish.

Just wanted to say thanks to all of your for the EXTREMELY nice comments on the HT. You guys are to kind.

The JBLs I have now have served me well for the last 5 yrs, but it's time to move on to better sounding speakers and this forum has been a great place for info on Axiom speakers. I've listened to the following speakers, Klipsch RF-7s, B&W 604S3, and Paradigm Studio 60s. The 60s were my favorite of the bunch, but I would really like to give the Axiom m80s a try before I buy anything. also if the m80 sound as good as everyone says they do I'd probably get them in a black lacquer finish.

Unfortunatley every seems to have some other finish. I asked for samples of the black lacquer and black oak, but since I haven't received them yet maybe some of you could give me your opinion of the black oak instead of the lacquer. How does it compare to other speakers you seen?

Thanks
Legairre

I think the black oak look great. My wife said the color scheme would be perfect with your awesome looking room so there you go!

Wow. I've seen some nice HT racks, but an inwall? That's nothing short of amazing!

I feel bad for the two channel Rotel amp. Looks like a pipsqueak next to the 200x5 one. NICE AMP! Must've been quite a pain o carry it in, though... *drools*

izub,
I think my wife would agree when I say the wife is ALWAYS right. I just received samples of the HG Black and man would these things look great in HG black. The only problem is I can't see myself paying an extra $350 for it.

Thasp,
Thanks for the compliment. Man you should have seen me trying to build the rack. The rack is built under the stairs and betrween two lolly columns. What a pain. Then again finishing the whole basement was a pain, but now my wife can't get me out of it.

The 200x5 is a real butt kicker. It weighs somewhere around 80lbs and my back sure knows it. The poor little 2 channel is a real whimp compared to the 200x5, but the 2 channel only powers my 2 center back speakers while the 200x5 handles the fronts center and side surrounds.
