BTW, CB, for what it's worth, I feel that the on-wall M22s require a sub, and one crossed fairly high, at that.


Agreed. But I think that the clarity of the highs with the on-wall M22's will make it worth it in the end.

We spent quite a while talking about the EP800 on the last call, but no one mentioned that designation. If I remember, I'll mention it on the next one.


Which aspect(s) of the EP800 did you discuss? I know you may not be able to go into detail, but was it about (design, marketing, problems/issues, sales, etc)?

Basically the problems and how they were resolved, what Axiom's response is, etc.

I've been informed that the designation on the EP800 will probably change soon. The usual Axiom practice is to change the model version after an accumulation of changes (not necessarily when they happen!)

Just spotted this over at Audioholics. Since last time I posted a link about Axiom from there it created a fire-storm I make the following disclaimer:

Before anyone gets their undies in a bundle this is a “FIRST LOOK” (picture Dean making great big quotation marks like Dr. Evil with hands as he says that). It’s not a “REVIEW” (big quotes again). Figure out the rest. ;\)

Axiom Audio On Wall Line of Speakers First Look

This part is a “REVIEW” so flame away. ;\)

Axiom Audio Epic Accent M0 On-Wall Speaker System Review

While this is about a 7 month old review it does give some perspective.

Well, somewhat inaccurate, but it's nice to see them writing articles rather than press releases as whole cloth.

The bookshelf models are ported. The power bracket is also a much revised version over what is pictured. Also, the grills, at least on the units I tested, were not magnetic.

First they never said the on-walls are NOT ported. They were just speculating. They are going by the pictures I assume and probably not privy to the same information as you. I'm sure they go by the information given to them by the manufacturer. Its a first look of a product not a review. Sometimes there is not complete information, hence the speculation. Very common for "first looks" or press releases on a product.

Secondly, they stated that the power bracket had been revised/addressed after M0 review they did. I agree about having a accurate picture though. That would have been nice. But if they don't have one, what can you do? How do they know if there is a new picture if not given one?

Thirdly, they never stated in the press release that the grilles were magnetic on the on-walls. They did make reference to the M0's using magnetic grilles though.

It seems your interpretation on the press release is whats inaccurate.

Yow...

If you reread my post, you'll see that I simply say that the article is somewhat inaccurate. I don't say they should know these things, just pointing out what I do know that would correct the article.

You get up on the wrong side of the brain this morning or something?

My reference to press releases was probably a tad out of line (if we are required to be polite to news outlets these days), but a number of articles I've seen on Audioholics in the past few years have been just that: press releases.

All I am saying is for articles such as the one we are talking about, the onus is on the manufacturer to supply the information. If there isn't complete information, then again thats on the manufacturer. In the article they speculated on information they did not know about which is very common for these types of "first look" articles. I wouldn't say the article has inaccurate information. It was not stated as fact.
