I don't have air in my current car either. Don't really need it up here. I don't see how you could go without living where you do though.

I always thought the trade up program was very generous.

Even though I never took advantage of the trade-up program, I really liked the idea because if I eventually decided to switch my whole system to a nicer finish, that probably would have been the way to do it. v3 and whatever new models are coming out will pretty much ensure the normal speakers in my system will be replaced (fronts, center, surrounds), but there's no way I'm replacing my subwoofers for a long time, so I'm fairly locked in to Boston Cherry for quite a while.

I work outside and not having air keeps me better acclimated. Not to forget except for when I committed marriage and got sentenced to live in Wisconsin Iíve spent all the rest of my life in the tropics. Places like Arizona, West Africa, and the South Pacific. IMO man should not live where palm trees donít grow naturally.

Must admit my carpool bud is digging the new air. She sayís others are making fun of me to her saying I got it to suck up to her. Funny no one will say that to my face. wink

What the hell doesnít hurt my rep for them to think Iím her sugar-daddy which she is playing up to the hilt.

I never expected to use the trade-up program since when I bought my Axioms it was with the intention (still is) I would never revisit my HT speaker purchase. Maybe add to but never replace. Thatís why I went ahead and just got the M80s figuring event though I was in an apartment then I would eventually want them. Funny how I seemed to miss the trade-up program when I ordered the M80 center.

Iíve always intended to purchase a separate 2ch system for the other room that Sean and I demoed his speakers in. Iím almost certain they will not be Axiom. Probably 2 driver monitors or towers similar to Seanís speakers. Not that I donít like the Axiom sound but for some things I would prefer a less intense speaker than the M80 but one that still goes lower than the M22. Always liked the Focal Chorus I demoed way back so those will be high on my list.

I'd like a separate 2-channel system, too, and I would also go with something other than Axiom. I still don't know what it will be, but it would just be nice to have a little variety. Of course, if Axiom keeps releasing compelling new stuff, I may never have the budget for the second system.

I would certainly consider Axiom if they released something more in line of what Iím looking for in a 2ch system but as far as upgrading my existing system I canít see any reason to. Might add more speakers but Iím already configured with a full 11.2 system and still have an extra pair of M22s to throw in when the next round of additional channels gets added.

Might add a VP180 to put above my screen, which would certainly enhance the ďwall-of-soundĒ effect for movies but Iíd like to see some professional reviews and would really like to see some off axis measurements of it before I go to the trouble of trying to get one above my screen in such a way that if I donít like it I havenít destroyed the cabinet so I canít ship it back.

Some places with palm trees are more hospitable than others. I could live in a place like Hawaii where it never gets stupid hot or cold.

Iíll take insanely hot over icicles hanging off my moustache when I get done running any day. Though I agree the coast is nice for moderating the temperature and surfing.

I love Hawaii. Iíve managed to get on a Hawaii trip at least one a year for the last 5 years. One was for a week during which we worked a total of 4 hours. What always kills me is that 4 of the trips Iíve made were to support local (to Hawaii) missions or the Hawaii Army National Guard. And every time at least 4-6 of the Hawaii Air Guard tankers were sitting over on their ramp while we were launching out. Not only does our governmentís right hand not know what the left hand is doing Iím getting convinced theyíre not even attached to the same torso.

Question. I haven't been here much lately, so if this has been discussed, I apologize (I did search).

I've been reading reports of V3 shipments on other boards. One thing that caught my attention was the fact that spikes are now a $21 'option'. Seriously? Is this true?
