I agree, I don't really care about which one I have as long as they're all the same. Either putting the old driver on the VP180 or the new one on the M80s will do as long as we get the opportunity to do one or the other.
I received mine today but I'm not home this weekend so it's still in the box. I have to wait until Sunday evening to play with my new toy . I also am curious to hear the first impression though.

i wonder if all the new speakers are going to use magnetic grills?


i have REALLY liked magnetic grills ever since i got my speakers for the bedroom, that happen to have them.

in my opinion makes the cabinet look 100X better.

I just spoke with Axiom and they said that they are discussing options on the old/new driver situation for us existing customers.

yep, the customer counsel members have been blessed with this information, but since it is top secret they would have to kill me if I provided any info at this time. \:\)

Seriously this has to be a tease... No reviews of the new speaker after more than a day?

I am left to believe that the fortunate souls who have received theirs are so enamored with the new speaker that they can't pull themselves away to share the news with us.

i agree, while there have been pictures uploaded by one person and a quick line or two, no serious reviews have been given, lots of grumbling about the color of the drivers, but no real reviews.

i am hopefull that the weekend still has another day to go and we will see a serious review or two before it's over. with more to come next week as more folks get their center and want to share with the rest of us what we have to look forward to.

Once I figured out how expensive the rosewood model was ($1120), I decided my Boston Cherry system actually looks just fine ($695). Going to order mine in about a week or two.

i don't want to get you wrong, are you saying that the boston cherry finish on the vp180 is $695 and the rosewood finish is $1120 or did i miss something?

sorry if i got it wrong, that's why i'm asking ;\)

That is exactly what he is saying. Axiom charges a heavy premium on the custom finishes so that is why you see such a price disparity between the rosewood finish and the stock vinyl finish (boston cherry).
