Ok, I've looked and looked on the web site, but I can't find anywhere that says that the standard finishes are real or vinyl? Can any owners help me out?

Thanks!
Mike

The standard finish is a very top grade vinyl, best in the industry.

The custom shop is vinyl, but more choices and costs more.

The wood shop cost even more.

IMO, Axiom does not do a great job of showcasing their finishes on the website. I have been very surprised by some of the customer pics that show a vinyl finish that I would think was real wood veneer. Check out the gallery and see what High Gloss Cherry Vinyl and Rosewood Vinyl look like, for example. I am kind of a wood guy and am shocked to say I would seriously consider the Axiom vinyl on a tower speaker. Their real wood does push the price tag into a different competitive realm, so keep that in mind.

That's because they don't have a rosewood vinyl. The rosewood, as you are soooo familiar with, is only available as a real wood veneer.

I thought maybe Zimm knew something that I was not aware of. ;\)
As a matter of fact I do remember seeing Rosewood speakers somewhere, but where? Don't worry it'll come to me

No wonder I was so damn impressed, they were wood. Ignore my post I spent the morning licking my QS8s, all fanned up!

Welcome to the forum MNTechy,

Here is a pic that was recently posted by gbuchana of their new M3's (custom cherry finish) installed in their home . They are absolutely stunning! \:\)

Here is another pic of a custom vinyl high gloss cherry finish with custom grilles made by the owner. Beautiful! \:\)
