Not sure how they do it directly at the factory... however, if you buy from their "factory outlet" over the internet and purchase an entire 5.1 or 7.1 system then you will save 15% plus they have free shipping!

The Axiom plant in located in Dwight, Ontario, It's about a 4 hour drive from Toronto, up the 400, then off to Muskoka, Nice drive in the summer, could be miserable in the winter, check weather forecast before you go.

I've been there a few times, once for listening tests and to pickup my Epic 80 system. If you pick your speakers at the plant, you will get another discount. No shipping (Make sure you take a vehicle that will handle the load, speaker boxes are quit large).

Give Noreen a call to set up a time; they will probably give you a plat tour also. That was really neat.

You can bring your Technics receiver with you, but you probably won't need it. They have very good and loud amps in their sound room that can really show off the Axiom line (however you may want to bring ear plugs, it can get very very loud).

You don't have to worry about your Technics driving them (unless you go with the M80's) as Axiom speakers are very sensitive.

When I picked up my system in the summer of 2005 I got a discount for shipping, factory outlet, and another one for buying 5 or more pieces and I still had 30 days to try it out. It was a great day!

Wow, I can't thank you enough. I'll print your reply and keep it on file.

I live in the 1000 islands area (near Kingston). I'll plan a trip with my family in the spring and come home with a mini van full. I plan for the fronts, rears, center and sub. Kids and my wife may have to ride on the roof, just kidding of coarse.

Again, thanks for taking the time to provide your insight.

Merry Christmas.

You're not kidding as the boxes for the M60's will fill the back end of pretty much any vehicle, throw in the the sub box and you will have no room for the kids.

Just be careful, sometimes John likes to drop speaker spikes on your feet when your not looking. \:\)

Also, the box for the ep600 looks like a refrigerator box. \:\)

Actually, this may be a reality. I have a Kia Sedona and needed to take out all four back seats to fit my entire Epic 60/500 system comfortably. When I recently went up to swap my system out for the new High Gloss Cherry (Minus the sub) I left the 2 middle seats in. I had 2 M60's, 1 VP150 and 4 QS8's tightly packed in there with little room for out luggage to go up north for the weekend.
I would not plan on doing a family trip to get the speakers until you got all of the box measuments from Axiom. As well, if the wife is not really into Audio it could be a killer on the deal...

Don't worry about bringing your amp/receiver with you, this will be more hassle then anything for you and Axiom. One thing to think of is JC who works there is doing a full renovation and building the first complete Axiom demo theater that may be finished when you go up. That would be ultra cool.

come on, enough is enough, every time one of you guys posts pictures of the Axioms in High Gloss Cherry or Wallnut, I start to cry. Cut it out!!!

"Santa, I've been a very good boy this year, all I want for Christmas is to have my Boston Cherry Axioms turned on to High Gloss Cherry or Wallnut, please use your Christmas magic and make it happen!!!"

Hey, I can dream (or is that fantasize).

Paul
