Welcome Shane,

I’ve lived in New Zealand but made it only as far West as Sydney and Canberra. I wanted to make it the West coast to surf but never got the time. Always hoped the locals were a little more friendly over there than the Dee Why and Narrabeen area.

Cheers,
Dean

P.S. What Axioms are you getting?

No, Shane; it's highly unlikely. There apparently was only one Australian in the past who posted here, using dajlc. He hasn't posted in about three years, but had a few about four years ago. Not likely that it would be of any real interest to you, but his posts can be read by searching dajlc from 4-5 years ago(he also listed his email address in his page).

Yep, the only two showing on the audition list are on the other side of Australia. \:\) Maybe Amie or Andrea could help if you send them a PM at Axiom.

Yep, I don't think Axiom have much market penetration in Australia. I only heard about them by chance from the Slim Devices forum.

Grunt, I'm looking at getting a pair of M3's. Money is very tight ATM. I've been saving birthday and Christmas money.

Hi there Shane, I am in Perth, Morley to be exact. I have just ordered the QS8's and the VP150. Hopefully they will arive late this week or early the following week.

Where abouts are you?

Yep all 2 of us \:\)

I am still amazed that Axiom actually ship to Australia. When it comes to electronics Australia is way behind, but when you live in Western Australia it's even worse.

If you happen to need someone to grill up your monster, be sure to contact "Wid."

(If this reference makes no sense to you, check the "what are you eating thread" for some of Wid's masterpieces.

Hi Graeme,
I'm in Swan View - about 20 minutes from you. I checked out your other posts and see you've ordered HT components. I'm thinking of just a pair of M3's.

My wife isn't too impressed with any of the standard vinyl finishes, but I'm suspicious that they look better in reality. What finish have you ordered?

I will agree that Axiom's vinyl finishes are one of the best in the industry, you may even think it is real wood. \:\)

I just did an audition and the guy was commenting on how the reviews on some forums say the worst part about Axioms was the vinyl finsh and he liked my veneer. I then told him it was the stock light maple finish and he was very surprised, he honestly thought it was real wood.

Hey Leeroy, I just might give you a shout after Xmas, I would be interested in hearing the M80's. I nearly bought them today but my amp won't run them. I bought the EP500 instead.

Leeroy - you may want to remove that mail address... web crawlers go out and find any posted e-mail address and add it to every spam list in existence. Better to send in a PM to avoid even more spam in your inbox!

I'm almost certain it is time-based, or it used to be.... I know I've edited stupid things I've said after someone pointed them out to me. ;\)

I did PM his as well and told him Axiom can probably kill it for him as well if he asks.

Believe it's 30 minutes.

However, checking another reply I made tonight, I note that the "edit" box didn't expire for about 45 minutes.

Hi Leeroy. We're all coming out of the woodwork now. The falling Aussie dollar has postponed any plans to buy Axioms for a while, but it would be great to hear what I'm missing some time \:\)
