Ok...I can't contain it any more than most mortals. I just got THE e-mail........THE shipment is out 2 weeks ahead of promise. Talk about exceeding expectations. Just like everyone says, Customer Service here is excellent. I was Director of Customer Service for a major corp for several years - so Beau knows Customer Service - so to speak.

Well.....the question that I have is how many of you guys took the day off work on the day THE shipment was supposed to arrive??

I was in Turkey when my first Axiom order arrived so no day off. But when I arrived back at my Axioms I had 5 days leave to burn and spent the better part of those days playing with my new speakers.

Personally if I were you I would take the next day off. That way if they arrive at 2 PM you won’t have blown most of the day waiting for them when you could instead spend the whole next day enjoying them.

Cheers,
Dean

I didn't take the day off. But I did have DHL's system (they were the shipper, at that time) set up to text-message me when the delivery was made.

I was home 20 minutes after the text and took the rest of the afternoon off. \:\)

It was a happy day. \:\)

Apologies?? I was 'worse' than you. I must have made 300 posts in the 4 weeks it took for my stuff to arrive.

I was on afternoons the day the speakers were to arrive. Went to bed at 5am, got up at 9am, fell asleep on the couch 20 minutes before the courier came by. I was a little agitated when I realized I had missed them and my speakers were on their way back to the terminal for delivery the next day.

I am trying to lay low - but if you insist on drawing me out.....the tracking says they are in Buffalo....Now it is a race to see if the speakers arrive first or the Classical Starter Set that I ordered??
