Iím not sure who compared Axiom to AV123. I was making note of the similarities between the tenor of the comments by the Axiom fanboys to AV123 fanboys. As for Axiom it made a good marketing call to preannounce something new coming up to generate hype. They may also have taken a sales hit temporarily since some buyers may now be waiting to see whatís coming before buying something.

I knew my comment would probably generate much consternation among some people and it worked. Especially for those whoíve chosen to read into it things that werenít said. This says a lot about people and group dynamics . . . that the Axiom forum (members) as a group are not different in kind only degree from AV123, AVS, Audioholics . . . .

Sorry you all feel like Iím pissing on your parade. JC deftly redirected this back to the threads original topic, interesting some people couldnít leave it that way.

Well stated. I do find the tone in this forum to me much like the tone from the AV123 forums years ago. Members here really can't take any negative comments about Axiom. I guess it's to be expected there is always a bias towards the brand on its forum.

If Axiom's new speaker will be higher cost than the M80s (say $2500/ pair), then I think its fair game people also evaluate alternative options at this price point. There are a lot of really good options at this price point but very few that are active designs like these. Adam audio comes to mind. Great speakers but pricey.

In any event, the folks at Axiom don't give you vaporware like AV123 so they should be applauded in that respect.

Fantastic, Luc! One of the most fun parts about leaving Dwight is meeting up with people we've 'known' forever on the boards. Of course, come summer, that can be one of the most fun parts of staying in Dwight, too!

Hopefully lots of you can make it out and enjoy the new speaker and some live music and even a beer with Alan, JC, or Andrew.

I'm still considering it as a possibility, Amie....a hopeful possibility even!

If I had ordered my VP160 last week, there might have been the possibility of just picking it up at the show! smile

Mark, I'll try and get the weather organized so it's sunny and bright for your drive . . . Luc, for that you have to negotiate with the Big Boss. LOL!

Hi Dakkon,
I once purchased a brand new dark red 1979 Jaguar XJS and had the European head lights kit installed . . . what a beauty ! I kept it for a full two years but could enjoyed it only a total of one single year or so because of the multiple lengthy periods of time it had to go back to the dealer's repair shop. The 12 cylinder engine had to be rebuilt twice to give you an idea. The dealer who was also a Saab dealer once loaned me a Saab and the damned car failed; it had to be towed back to the shop as well. But that XJS what a superb car it was . . . when operating !

You need deep pockets to own a Jag. Nice cars but they are a bottomless money pit.
