Yeah, and from the sounds of it, they didn't anticipate releasing v3 so soon. The release of the VP180 made it happen sooner.

Maybe my subs are just that crappy? laugh

Your subs have acquitted themselves just fine when playing from the best location.

No Cam, I just thought about watching the news. You should see what happens when I actually catch a glimpse of it. shocked

I couldn’t have said it more succinctly.

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.

Thank you.
That was my point. wink

Maybe that would be a good policy - mention what's coming down the pipe for custom wood orders (which are inherently longer lead anyways) but not for regular orders. The obvious question though is whether the information would leak out anyways, in which case see "Osborne Effect".

That said, my understanding was that most of the performance-related v3 changes dribbled into production over a year or more, and that only the name change and the magnetic grills were "sharp" changes, so this discussion may all be moot anyways.
