Love the magnetic grille .


Now I get to be jealous! Still waiting for my grille (I hope the magnets are installed in my speaker!) ;\)

I'm very excited for all of you!!! Believe me, it was a long wait for me too because I am very anxious to hear all of your opinions of this speaker. Please post your impressions as soon as you can.

Bad news! Working late so won't be able to get to it until tomorrow. \:\(

Oh the cruelty...

You're in Richmond Hill and got yours! Men I'm jealous, I'm in Stouffville and from the tracking number, mine was in Pickering at 8.30 am and is STILL in Pickering! What a F%%% is Purlator doing?
This only thing I could figure out is that they saw that it was an Axiom speaker and decided to audition it themselves first, that's the only logical explanation so I'll probably get it tomorrow


Well hopefully they wont just leave yours on you front door step with no signature like they did mine .

It sat out there for two hours until i asked my daughter when she got up to bring it in.

Whats with the white dust cap? Not a fan of the look of the new drivers. I like the contrast of the black and white better.

Not a fan neither. Specially for the people that already have M80s V2, the look will be different, so now the wife will complain
From the pictures that Steve had posted, I was under the impression that the drivers looked the same as the M80s.
I guess this will be the look of the M80s V3.

Someone from Axiom (probably Ian) has recently posted that they were now able to have all-whites drivers. I admit prefering the old look, but with the grills you should not see them.

You are correct bdpf. The picture of SRoodes VP180 has the traditional drivers. I agree this is a major missstep if it was not disclosed upfront about the driver change for those that purchased these.

I know for sure that the wife will be bothered by that. And yes, as far as I know, this info was not disclosed. Now what will be interesting is to know how much will Axiom give me for my 5 months old V2s once the V3s come out. But it still bothers me to upgrade just for looks. We'll see.
BTW, I like to keep the grills off.

My natural cherry (semigloss, charcoal, chrome) VP180 is scheduled for arrival on Wednesday, 6/23. Will I be the first possessor of a VaSSallo one?!

This will go with my HGC M80s as well as M22 rears and an EP800. The rears and sub are in the natural cherry. When the V3 M80s are released I will trade in my HGC V2s for natural cherry V3s to achieve a a matched set!
