It was the Fishnet Grill Cover that really turned the trick....

Financial considerations aside, I think it's great if they don't include the spikes without first determining whether the consumer wants them or not. I just cleaned up my junk room and threw out around 4 sets of spikes. I felt bad about it because it seemed wasteful and they look to be beautifully machined, but I just couldn't imagine ever using them.

Now watch, I'll move and have to special order some sets of spikes!

They haven't had a price increase in some while. If not automatically including spikes (which a fair number of people don't use) has allowed them to avoid a price increase, it makes sense to me.

I don't agree or disagree with their decision to not include spikes (although, as I stated before, "I" think they should include them). The problem I have with it is up to V3 they did include spikes and folks were expecting them. At least it should be very clear on the product page. I know it says rubber feet now instead of both, but IMO, it is not clear enough.

There are some very unhappy folks over at bluray.com now. Plus it seems there are some customer service issues.

I sure hope Axiom is not in trouble.

If they were to offer spikes or rubber feet as an option then people who use spikes would have them and vice versa.
I was one of the "ones" who ordered right at the change from v2 to v3, I had been seeing spikes on the website for weeks while I was making my decision(ordered 6/25, an order placed 6/20 by another got spikes)
I was using spikes on the speakers that the M80v3's replaced and I would have used them in this case if I had had the choice.

Since i am on carpet the rubber feet are useless to me .

Would have been nice to have the option

Just my 2 cents worth, if they were charging for the rubber feet as an "option" it might be a little bigger deal to those who are fine with the rubber feet :/WUP

I haven't seen this charge for spikes yet. It would seam to me that a no cost option for either rubber feet or spikes would be more appropriate. And if a person wanted to order a set of 'premium' fancy spikes, they would come with an additional charge.

I do know that Axiom is working on the whole customization program to offer customers a slew of different options. This may just be one more step in that process.

I have hard wood floors all over the place so I hate it when stuff comes with spikes. They usually send you little pads to go under them, but they sure are a pain in the rear. Just try balancing a 70 pound speaker with spiked feet while trying to position them over the pads once.... which is something I have to do today. Oh joy, oh joy..
