Hey, things change. On my last visit to Axiom for a general meeting, I wasn't really surprised when Ian said he had a blind listening test set up because we do those every time I visit.

What surprised me was after the test when we opened the curtains (acoustically transparent) to find a pair of M3-sized enclosures of a black composite synthetic material, the prototypes of the outdoor M3s. They did really well in the listening comparisons, so it's a go-ahead for tooling and stuff. That takes some months.

Regards,

I'm thinking that Axiom doesn't quite do Apple level product announcement security...

Hey Alan, a pair of M3s coupled with a decent little sub made of synthetic composite material on the outside patio ... sounds like a winner to me!

What will the VaSSallo versions be - carved from single pieces of granite?

Ouch... I actually got a twinge of guilt using Joe's name in a sentence with a joke.

And of course, you guys say there will be no outdoor speakers... don't wait around for outdoor speakers... you even suggest other manufacturers' outdoor speakers. I wire my garage for 6x9s in enclosures and BAM! You come out with outdoor speakers. :P

Joe would have loved that joke. He was all about making it cooler!

Bren,

Of course, hand-carved from the Canadian shield, complete with lichen growing, for authenticity. Talk about an acoustically opaque enclosure! It's true, Joe would have found that funny.

Now that I think about it, what about Axiom outdoor speakers carved from soapstone by Inuit artisans? For the art market. . .

There's potential here.

Have you tested these speakers to -30 celcius yet?

For hot tubbing outside of course...

Well, if there's a big enough demand, maybe Axiom will use up enough rock to finally flatten out those pesky mountains in Alberta and BC... they obstruct my view of the Pacific. *turns west and shakes my fist... menacingly*
