You are tireless, Chess.
I must compliment you, as well, on your improved tact.
Not like I am the master of tact, my people skills are pretty poor.

Petre, I think what you said makes sense, but most here (myself included) will agree w/ the viewpoint Chess presented. I think the clincher for me was the query, "If speakers break-in due to physical changes in materials, what then causes the driver materials to suddenly stop physically changing?" IOW, whatever factors that would cause changes in the physical properties of a speaker would still be present after the break-in period, right? The result would be a continuing of the break-in period, the speaker materials continuing to change over time.

Oh yeah, the review thingee!

Having never heard the Rockets, I cannot comment on the comparison. But, from EVERYTHING I've read here, the AVS forum, et al, the Rockets aren't supposed to have that "front row" sound.
I am certainly curious to hear those 750s now. I wonder what return shipping to China is on those beasts?

When I auditioned the 750's; I thought it was a pretty detailed. I just didn't like the laid back sound to it thou.

I was asking how much shipping was back to China. If I was hinting anything it was, "Better like them 'cause it will cost a fortune to send them back." I've been over it, BTW.

Yeah, I believe they make them and import them from there. If you don't like them I think that's where you have to ship them back to, but I could be wrong.
And, BTW, no hard feelings on my end. Life's too short to be all pissed off all the time.

Guys... They bring all the speakers in from China in bulk and warehouse them here... and shipping would be back to Colorado... which the Japanese own, not the Chinese...

Cheesbro ... It's a fact to you and anyone that says it is ... In your opinion.

Others have measured the changes... Myself included.

Many times I have said that some speakers seem to be unaffected ... others ther is a noticable change.

I'm not some novice and these Axioms are not my first set of speakers.

I've been an Audiophile and musician for some 30 years.

Like I said ... I'm not going to argue the point.

I know what I know and whether or not the Axioms or other speakers break in ... the bottom line is ... I think they sound wonderful.

Big will .... I've always described it this way ...

Birth ... Life ... Death

Which one lasts the longest ?

If speakers never changed ... why do drivers go bad after many years of play.

In another thread on a different forum I was in this same type of impassable discussion ... someone presented your arguement and a Physicist stepped in and explained it perfectly with facts that none of us could honestly understand .

But he agreed with me.

That is all .
