I got a note from Ian, and it seems that my math skills are not as good as they should be and I didn't pick up on the way that the taxes were calculated correctly.
I formally withdraw my comment that I got docked the $179 in taxes. That is not true. I sincerely apologize to Axiom, Ian, and all his staff for any harm or embarrassment that I may have unintentionally caused them by my comments.
Axiom has and still does make an incredible line of speakers. Their amps too are top notch and that is why I have bought. It is only human to have an off day and we all have them. To complain about it giving the appearance that this is the norm isn't the best thing to do.
