Wow, that sounds fantastic. So where can all of us under-priviledged folk find out the results?



Here is a link to the ongoing thread over at av123.

Western PA / NY GTG Part 2 ...

I've linked to page 9 where people have started to post about the GTG after it was over. The first post says there were a couple of Axiom owners there. He meant Ascend owners, not Axiom (well, at least he remembered that it started with a "A").


If you want skip all the schmoozing and cut right to the chase, the results are on page 10, post #143. Keep in mind that the results are a compilation of peoples opinion, nothing more nothing less. Had you been there, you very well may have rated everything differently. Also, the scores are not absolute. Each test stands on its own, meaning one should not look at a score from round 1 and compare it to a score from round 6.

Should anyone have the opportunity to attend one of these GTGs, yes even a regular av123 GTG, you should do yourself a favor and do it. Yes, there are av123 products present and being demonstrated, and yes, there are av123 products given away by drawing. But, nobody is hyping anyone to buy anything.

Truthfully, the best thing about these GTGs is the people, the camaraderie with others who share a passion for our hobby, and the great food. Most of these GTGs are instigated and organized by regular forum members, not av123.

I would love to see Axiom do the same kind of thing, cuz they are great fun, and go a long way toward creating a strong, supportive community.

Yeah, I think we've been falling down on the job... How about that west coast get together next summer?

Glad to hear you had fun, Jack!

Thanks Ken. Yeah, if that West coast GTG comes off, circumstances permitting, I'll be there.

Hey, that's my hot tub!

Maybe. Possibly. It looks like a Hot Springs model. I have the Envoy. It's nice to be getting into cooler weather and to be using it again.

See, I don't think there's a Beer Thread with 75,000 views at av123. So, we certainly HAVE Axiom GTG's, but they, well, are a little less focused.

Jack, it always makes me feel happy to hear your stories, and I am delighted that you had a good time. Thank you.

I wish you could've been there as well, Tom. Getting to see Ray again was a joy. He told the story about Peter photoshopping our faces onto the bodies of Matthau and Lemmon from Grumpy Old Men. Got a lot of laughs.

There was a recent GTG, similar to this, held in the Seattle area. I believe Kris Deering of Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity was in attendance. I debated with myself, back and forth, whether to let you know about it. I was so paranoid about coming across as hyping that I simply couldn't make a decision, which of course resulted in the involuntary decision to not let you know. If you think you would ever be interested in attending such a gathering in your area please let me know. I can tell you they are a great deal of fun, and you'd meet a LOT of very nice people.

Boy, I'M elderly and nobody checked on me! On the other hand, I get that ALOT!

Attended with Jack (I'm the good lookin' guy in the burgundy shirt with glasses). We had the chance to have dinner Friday night and breakfast Saturday morning together and catch up a bit. I counted that as special time. Jack is even cooler (and older) in person and I regard him as a close friend.

Second time for both of us to Craig's (subwoofer shoot-out a couple of years ago). Craig is the best guy and he has a sharp wit/great sense of humor. Opened his home up to 30+ and everybody had the run of the place. There was that unfortunate incident with Jack and the pocketfuls of silverware, but we got it under control.

This was a non-denominational gathering, but mostly peopled by av123ers. Great fun was had by all, but it played hell with my golf schedule.

OK - this is scary; posting at the same time.

I also related that unfortunate photoshop incident involving "The Tick".

That has to be one of the best forum reads in a LONG time.
Nicely done lads.
Looks like the GTG was fantastic.

So what was it i posted the other day about Axiom building A/B switcher units for the masses of home enthusiasts? Seems their prototype is already out there...

And just how many cows were killed to cook 36 tenderloins?
