OK, I'm seeing some of that forum posting wonkyness, so I split my post in two.

Overall the differences on the graph presented are subtle. I would be curious to see off axis measurements to see what changes are there, but thats OK, I can bug Ian and Alan in September.

I really hope we get a chance to compare the v2 to v3 speakers at the Anniversary get together.

Like Larry and Michael, I'm a little amazed at all the "woe is me" talk, are we in high school people? I guess you can't make everyone happy. If people decide to jump ship, so be it, but I would think they would be happy Axiom is making strides to better their products and continue to be the best bang for the buck in high end audio.

The same thing happened when we went from Ti's to V2. Everyone was crying about why was I not told, I just ordered my speakers a few months ago...yada yada yada. I guess you can't make everyone happy.

I suppose I could pi$$ and moan that my current 7.3 setup is only a V2 and how much money I've spent, or the 7.1 system that preceded them were only Ti's and why Axiom didn't tell me about the soon to be released V2's at the time. But, I am happy my M22's and onwall W22's are V3. I'm just happy to be an Axiom customer. Life is good.

I love what I have, but I can certainly understand that if I bought I custom real wood finish system a couple of months ago that I may be a little put off (the system would cost several thousands of dollars, and that's a lot of cash for any speaker system). I would have expected a heads up to wait a bit. I think if these very few customers contacted Axiom directly, something could be worked out.

But, for the others like me, I love what I have and have no complaints.

If the guts were not V3, I can understand your point, but missing magnetic grills, whoopti do.

To some it is, to some it isn't. If the buyer was contacted ahead of time, then he/she could make their decision to buy now or wait. Listen, I'm really only talking about real wood custom finishes here... It's a big investment. I would have expected a heads up.

And, btw, the same people who spend almost double for a custom real wood finish are EXACTLY the type of people who would appreciate the magnetic grille (IMHO).

That's my thinking. Now that there are magnetic grills, I'm thinking more seriously about a custom finish. Before I was going to request my speakers be built without the grill mount points, but was worried that maybe in the (distant) future I'd want more protection from little fingers.

I know I sure would have liked the magnetic grills. But I love my setup and until I feel the need for a clean front for my speakers I'll just enjoy what I have.

This is nothing like before. You have a unique memory. And just how much value do you think your rant on a review from someone you don’t even know provide?

You’re welcome. I’m glad to help.

Of all the people who frequent this place, you have little room to throw words like “counter-productive” or “respect” around. And for the last time, I am not an Axiom representative. My words are mine, not Axiom’s. Stop trying to make me / us into something we are not. I’m really starting to wonder just what your agenda is.

I will concede to this. I agree, a head's up would have been nice before dumping ten grand or better. The only problem with that is; where do you draw the line in regards to the timeline of giving these folks an option? That could be a slippery slope.
