Don't make the mistakes I made, rack up the credit card, then try to come up with an excuse on why there are these huge moving boxes on the front step from Canada.

All excuses should be considered before such confrontation arises...perhaps Ian should put some examples on the website for prospective buyers....

A) My doctor told me the M80s would reduce my stress
B) If the area floods, we can paddle the EP600 to safety
C) They cost the same as regular furniture but they have speakers in them
D) The M80s can be used to make very loud barking noises to scare away thiefs
E) You are part of an experiment linked to the National Research Council of Canada, this may also require future upgrades to 'scientific' equipment

I'm an electrician by day and do some side work at night. Most of the extras in my house come from my extra money. My wife knows I have been researching speakers. She also knows that I am fairly thorough when researching any purchase. She slao knows that I would rather spend a few extra bucks to get something good than to settle for something less and wish I had gone the extra mile.
She also knows that when I don't mention price it is because she probably wouldn't want to know. She does the bills so she will know soon enough when we get the Bill Me Later statement.

A funny side: I went to the supermarket to get Money Orders the other night. (Trying to spare my wife the shock of the coming bill) Money Orders max at $300. I aksed for 7 Money Orders totalling $1880 for my order. After counting my money the guy (kid) leaves my money on the counter behind him and disappears for several minutes. I'm in a bit of a rush. He finally comes out and I say that I didn't expect this to be a project. With that I see him holding this thick book and on the cover it says something about Money Laundering and he says I will have to sign something. I asked for my money back and split. (That's why it may have seemed like I was placing my order over the weekend and then didn't do it till Monday evening)

Another thing to factor in is that I lost my Mom in October and I will be getting some inheritance. (Probably should have ordered the whole setup)After everything is settled I will probably take the wife away for the weekend (it was a hell of a past 2 years) and when she is all nice and rested I will place the rest of the order.

Sorry to hear about the rough times, on the plus side Axiom will still honor the 5% HT discount if the orders are placed with-in 30 days of each other.

Is that on top of the Outlet Store discount?

Yes, an additional 5% discount if at least 5 items are ordered.

I was told by Noreen at Axiom that they pre-calculate the FO wait times by averaging them (e.g., if you order various FO speakers at 1-, 3-, 5-week estimates then they average/plan to ship them in 3 weeks, in my case she confirmed early on an exact ship date of Nov 10 [woohoo], which was 3 weeks only although the qs8s should have taken 2 weeks more) yet failed to mention that my (pre order) subwoofer ship time was anyone's guess (oops! thanks Jason for preventing my first heart attack}
