Is Axiom planning to make this finish (currently on the MZero,VPZero) available on the larger models, i.e. M3Ti,VP100?

Hi Viet;

We have done high gloss finishes in the past. This particular finish adds quite a bit to the cost of the loudspeaker, so we have moved back to matte finishes in order to provide the best pricing available.

Incredibly I was already stalking the Axiom forum looking for information back then, seems funny that so many years have passed so quickly

I think I stumbled upon a "Soundstage" review(or was it "Home theater or something" with the comparison test of the M3, and the marble Norh[sp] and a Swan Diva)of the M3s while looking for any on-line magazines with speaker reviews, which lead me to the Axiom web site.

...the JBL HLS series had been cancelled and I was lost....

The forum was cool back then too!

We even had a fella called "Ian"(I think)who would give lots of knowledgable and insightfull info on Axiom speakers on a daily basis!!

I think things were simpler then; not as much competition, and not as much stuff to sift thru.

Sometimes it's fun to go way back in forum time and see what used to go on.
Rich.

Thinking about the JBL HLS series that was popular around 2000,(or so) It seems that I recall the series going thru NRC testing just about the time JBL was bought-out and lots of stuff changed.

I did a Google on JBL and NRC and come up with....

Anyone remember these?(the HLS610 seemed to be a winner, and was my potential favorite of the breed.)

I'd love to see some NRC graphs on those babies

Since they were a bookshelf model, they may have been lots of fun for a while, but when floorstanders became a "must-have" I'd have been back at square one and still ended up with Axiom!!

Probably M60s or even M80s since M3s wouldn't have been in the picture

I used to own the HLS-810 (I believe that was the model). I was really glad to be rid of them by the time it was all said and done.

I had never heard the 610, but I'd somehow gotten the impression that the 610 had better integration between the tweet and mid-woof than the 8" in the 810.

....dunno

however; never heard any of HLS series, so may have been disapointed as well!
