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...




Very enticing product. Although I don't do much A/B'ing (?) anymore, I'd still like to such a switcher.

I agree, Chess, nice thread. I had an opportunity to attend an AV123 GTG about a year ago, but circumstances permitted otherwise. Definitely looking forward to an Axiom GTG!!

There was that unfortunate incident with Jack and the pocketfuls of silverware, but we got it under control.



I don't quite understand why nobody believed that I was simply demonstrating the Harpo Marx silverware routine. That's all I was doing..........honest..........really..........anybody?

After Ray and I had dinner Friday night, we retired to a very informal, intimate gathering at Craig's (Ray and I; Craig and his lovely wife Susan; Mark Schifter; John Williams (Quadriverfalls), his wife Denise, and his two daughters). It was a lovely, soft, warm evening and we sat outside on the patio just enjoying each other's company.

Craig set up a pair of old Klipsch Cornwalls in the opening of one of his garages (in the photo below, you can see one of the Cornwalls in the garage opening obscuring the right rear of the red Viper).



We were seated on the patio, about 150 feet from the speakers. We played some discs that Mark had brought along, and I could not believe how good everything sounded. Those old Klipsch just sang. I have not enjoyed such a pleasant evening in a very long time.

Now what sub could you possibly use with the Cornwalls that would be effective at about 150 feet. Why this 435 pound behemoth, of course.



Is that thing ridiculous or what!

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?



Chess, It was truly a wonderful time. I will reiterate that the single best thing was the people. Just really fine folks all around.

That switch was really cool, and worked perfectly. There was absolutely no delay. Just speaker A, bingo, speaker B. Terrific!

LOL! I have no idea how many bovines bit the dust, but their sacrifice was NOT in vain. Absolutely delicious.

Oh geez... Ray, I'm so sorry... I just assumed that someone had brought along part of their mummy collection...

See, this is why we lose owners... it's not because someone else has a better product for the dollar... it's because their owners don't spit the same vitriolic comments that ours do... like mine above.

... which, oddly enough, is why I love you guys.

Jack, sounds like a fantastic time. The link you provided doesn't seem to work, though - and none of the pictures posted here are working either. Just me?

I'm sorry you're having difficulty, Shawn. Everything seems to be working for me.

If you're that interested, try going to av123forum.com, click on "Loudspeakers And Subwoofers," and the first sticky thread should be "Western PA / NY GTG Part 2 ...". To skip all the preliminary stuff start at page 9.

Nobody knew which sub Craig used for the listening comparison, and everybody raved about it (I did not participate in the comparison). It turned out to be a $289 Acculine ASub. Go figure.

I will qualify that "rave" by saying that Craig's basement room is a terrific sounding room. It has a low (7'?), acoustical tile, dropped ceiling and there is, something like, 4" of insulation in the walls, so it is a relatively dead room without being too dead. Just about everything sounds good in that room.

Sounded like a fun time! I'm disappointed Jack didn't ask me as his date though! Jack, if there's ever an Midwestern Axiom GTG, you'd better be there!

You'd have been most welcome, Mary. (no wink) Rest assured, circumstances permitting, I will be attending any Axiom GTG I can.

Jack, I'm firmly in the "many paths to God (or audio bliss)" camp, so yes, I'm always interested in sharing time with good people.

Ray (I can't believe I'm saying this), retirement seems to agree with you. You look great. Especially considering your vintage

Shawn, it's just you.

Bren, don't stop

Well thanks for the nice compliment Tom! I highly recommend retirement to everyone.

Don't wait as long as I did (60) though. There are downsides. For example, I bent down to tie my shoes today and then forgot why I was down there.

While the GTG was great fun, I was a tad disappointed that there weren't any M3s or M22s there. I always liked showing off my Axioms and watching the reaction when I told them the price. I still think the M60 is a terrific speaker.

Soooo - when does the first Axiom GTG get scheduled somewhere between Jack and me and who is going to host it?

Mary - if you DO go to one of these things with Jack, take a large, really absorbent drool towel. You'll thank me later.
