I just checked with Fedex and it appears that delivery is scheduled for tomorrow.

I will try and take some pictures tonight of the sad sight that is my speakerless home theater. I'll also make sure that I get some pics of just the boxes and the work in progress as well as the finished product. The finished product may take a while as I must mount my plasma and run all the wires for it to really be complete, but I will take in process pics as well for those who choose to live this experience vicariously. \:\)

Absolutely, plus when you are done you'll be happy you have the in-process pictures to see how the project unfolded. I still enjoy looking back through mine (not that I'm done, or ever will be). \:\)

Cool. Except for the "signature service not required". Unless they changed recently, Axiom always ask for a signature even when they ship just a T-shirt!

I think the signature part is respective to the delivery agents involved, Purolator requires a signature unless otherwise specified, I believe Fed Ex and UPS work the other way around.

I don't doubt that, but I certainly doubt Axiom would ship +1000$ of dollars worth of merchandise with no-one to show for it.

I would tend to agree. I paid just under $3K for these speakers. I would doubt that they would ship without a signature required.........but then again I wouldn't put it past a shipping company to just "make up" the rules as they go.

I hold shippers in very low esteem. I once had an issue where I shipped an insured set of speakers via UPS and the ham handed workers there crushed them. Of course, they refused to pay the claim (despite several appeals). We ended up in small claims court. I won, but it took me 9 months and many, many hours to get my money back. I have little respect for the shipping industry after that experience.........but I digress.

I see that several of the boxes are "beat up". I will open them later tonight when my friend comes over to help. I sure hope they all arrive undamaged.
