If Sroode decides not to turn in his ep500's on the trade up program he will be the win the bass-head award with 2 ep500's and 2 ep800's!

Don't think I didn't already think of running all four at the same time before sending the EP500's back! I'm not sure my breakers can handle it though. I have a dedicated 20A breaker, and one shared 15A breaker for the room, but I think it may be cutting it close with the AVR-3806 running at the same time.

Also, it may sound so good that it would make me feel awful for sending the EP500s back!

Loc: Indiana you hoser!!!!
Ok ok, so no disrespect intended towards any of you early birds who were lucky (smart) enough to pre-order your EP800's and are now reaping the rewards of said purchase... but when will the 800 be available to the general public for God sake???

I've been putting off my Axiom home theater purchase until the 800 becomes available, and I must say it's just about to kill me!!! I don't know how many times I've had myself convinced to just go ahead and order the Epic 80 with the EP600... but as soon as I get the cursor over the 'Order' button, reality hits me that I will forever regrett not waiting for the 800. It's even crossed my mind that I could buy it, then upgrade when it becomes available. But I would hate to waste the money, and I know just as soon as the 600 ships, I'll log on here and see that the 800 is finally for sale.

So congrats to all of you lucky bastages that got it while the gettin was good... but now that you have your goodies, let's open the flood gates and let the bass flow into other homes as well now shall we... PLEAAAAAAAAAASE




I hope my envy doesn't show right through my post \:o

Micah, you might want to call Axiom to ask them when it will be available. Depending on the size of the pre-orders, it might take a while for them to start processing new orders, but you could slide in to be first in line when it becomes available.

Why you miserable cork sucker... You Fargin Icehole you! I put your bells in a sling! (Sorry, could not resist replying to you Johnny Dangerously reference, one of my favorite childhood movies!)

The thing to remember is that the trade-in value on the Axioms is quite high, especially in the first year or two of ownership. I have not calculated it exactly, but I would bet that pre-ordering the EP800s (and getting the $400 discount) would have more than made up for the loss in ep600 trade in value and the return shipping cost.

Micah, wait for the EP-800... unquestionably, don't let impatience get the better of you on this one. Trust me. ;\)
