I'm with Mark, Michael and Tom and I have a v3 VP180 incorporated with v2 M80s and QS8s that to my ordinary ears sounds absolutely incredible as a whole system. Not once, for even a millisecond has the thought entered my mind that the VP180 center was sonically in a different class than the rest of my system nor have I noticed any obvious differences other than the silver domes and magnetic grills, which, if you leave the grills on like myself you'll very seldom even see those differences.

My personal opinion only...

I'm inclined to believe a little bit of the review Ian posted from whoever it was who reviewed the v3 speakers was a wee bit over the top regarding the vast differences between the new and old versions and some folks have taken the review as an axe to start chopping trees, myself included at first.

I am absolutely happy with my Axiom speakers and if the wife ever lets me spend any money whenever I decide to upgrade, it will primarily be to a nicer finish because like Michael, I wouldn't care if the speakers were version 3 or 10.

There, I fixed it.


Negative opinions? What negative opinions, did you read my posts. I stated several times that the Axiom sound is very good, and that they offer a very good value for the money, and that I really like it, that was why i tried to get the upgrade in the first place...but that fact, doesn't make these drivers prices cheap neither...I do not think that to say the truth is a negative opinion, all the opposite...

And Tom, yes to your question, at least me personally, was trying to get a reasonable price for the upgrade, to see if we can upgrade to V3, and post opinions on how they sound indeed in comparison, and sorry but I do not want/need anybody to agree with me, I know that those prices are very high...period...I'm just telling you guys the prices given to me, by them, and my opinion, but as usual it is just that, my opinion based in some experience in the field, you can take it, or simply ignore it...

BTW some of "the Dayton drivers" are not offering look only, they are made to specs for them, Dayton have very good drivers for the money, the Titanic is one of the finest sub-woofers ever made...

Both your and the Docs posts were accurate and well stated. I didn’t find anything negative about them. For some reason right now (not the norm) anything not glowingly Axiom is being taken as negative. This to shall pass. I hope.

I don't understand what all the noise is about. Axiom is in the business of selling speakers, not components.

That is correct Fred, good point. The reason Axiom is bringing this as an option is because over the years a "few" DIY'rs have asked for this as an option. Now that it is offered to them, it isn't good enough.

How many DIY’rs have expressed the opinion that what Axiom is doing isn’t good enough, I haven’t seen that many DIY’rs posting about this. wink

You are correct Dean. It is not DIYers complaining. It is, however, still complaining.

If the price is not right for you: move along, don't buy.

Edit: no this is not directed specifically at you Dean.

These aren't the droids you're looking for. Move along, move along.
