Now to get things back on topic :), my "center channel" M80 arrived last night. Boy, after having my other Axioms now for four years, I'd forgotten how exciting it is to anticipate the arrival of new speakers. I'm hoping to get it hooked up this weekend for a test run even though I'll probably have to take things apart again at some point in order to finish the theater. I've got quite a bit of finishing work to do yet, but it's so much more fun to play with new speakers. Got a new sub coming next week as well. Oh boy!

I'll try to let you know what I think, in my own, simple way.

What are the dimensions and weight? Surely it's not as wide as the floorstander is tall?! Thanks.

bluray, I believe korkster purchased an actual M80, not the "new" centre channel that is currently in the works.

I see! I was under the impression that korkster had been bestowed the honor of beta testing a prototype. If that's not the case:

1. Peter, if you are monitoring, I hereby volunteer for that role when the time is right! I suppose though, those lucky few with the new decoder rings will be first in line. \:\)

2. What does anyone guess the width of this thing will be? I can't picture it on the FMS CC, you know?

I would guess that the width is close to or the same as the M80, given that this new centre will have the same number of drivers and tweeters (not sure about the front port though). If you look at the front of the M80, there isn't much spare room.

From what I know, it is pretty much the same cabinet as the M80s. When we talked about it in the Council, we recommended that they make a new stand specifically for it.

So I assume the stand is what's going to angle the M80 center since it will use the existing M80 cabinet?

Regarding the M80 stand I have to wonder how cost effective it would be for them to build and have the ability to offer a MSRP that is attractive to consumers. Axiom brackets and stands are pretty expensive as is. Any prices floating around?

Well, the M80 is already tapered so you'd get an automatic "built in" angle of sorts. I do agree, though, that a stand with the ability to angle would be so much more attractive (I don't mean looks) to potential customers.
