Well I finally got my Axiom speakers in. And man are they Beautiful! Only took three days to go from Canada, all the Way to Alaska! Images are not inlined due to size.


The Boxes are freaking Huuuge:

Here is the center channel, the VP100 very smooth sounding and very shiny:

The M50 Towers arrived double boxed with no marks at all on them:

Here is a pic of the hardware they came with. You can choose to use the rubber feet if you are on wood floors, or the metal spikes if you are on carpet. Since I am on carpet I decided to go with the spikes, and you can hear the spikes pop through the carpet when you set them down:

And then the actual M50 itself. As you can tell very very shiny and boy do they sound nice:

And then here is all three speakers with the new tv. We are totally digging the new speakers with the tv. I don't think I have ever seen so many movies in 72 hours. Very enjoyable.

Very nice RC, I wish Axiom offered these cool options back when I bought my 7.1 gear. Oh well, the sound is the same.

I do need something to raise the TV above the center channel however. It is large enough to cause major issues with controlling the Westinghouse.

I thought about using cinderblocks on some cloth (to protect the glass) to raise it up. Is there any better ideas?

Beautiful finish to go along with beautiful sound, RC. Enjoy.

What "control issues" are you experiencing?

The center channel is blocking the IR port of the tv. So the control issue is that I do not have any control at all unless I stand up.

Awesome setups man. Now I'm even more anxious to get mine . I like the last pic where the right side of the VP100 is so shiny that the reflection makes it look like it's not even there. It took about 3 glances before my brain finally accepted that there actually is a speaker there :P. How's everything sound?

Oh, and how long did it take after you ordered before they got to your house? I've been asking people about that, but few have been getting the HG Cherry, which I hear is a lot longer wait then the 4 regular finishes.

Thanks for the pics. Enjoy.

About three weeks of waiting before they shipped. And then only three days until they got to Alaska. Crazy fast shipping.

I had to turn the monitor so my vinyl M50s couldn't see the pics.

.....I haven't told them of the existence of real wood yet.

Beautiful!!
Rich.
