Well question is simple. Since Axiom has release the V3 this year i would like to know on what they are looking/focus next. A V4 with better crossover and adjustement or new kind of speaker with new driver/tweeter stuff like that ? Axiom engineer might work at something wink

Well i dont want go deep on details but just curious on what Axiom reserve us for the next year.

Let's discuss smile

There are vague murmurings of higher-end offerings, but I have no idea what that entails, besides a higher price. If there seems to be a real performance improvement, I'll be in line. I wonder if there will be new drivers made with new materials or if it will simply be further finessing of their existing line of drivers. I also wonder if there will be any attempt to escape a traditional box design at all.

I've always tought Axiom would launch a higher line. Well it's hard to consider better product in home teather. Just think M80, VP180, EP800. That are some serious product.
But i would like a high end tower for audiophile.

I hope that Axiom doesn’t produce any “higher-end offerings” in terms of SQ at least. Seems to me that Axioms has taken a basic philosophy was to start with sound principles and then to incrementally improve it over time which IMO both more honest and more customer friendly than companies who produce new multi-tiered offering on a regular basis as if some new speaker technology has vastly improved sound reproduction.

I don’t begrudge them producing “high-end” lines, however if they use it to apply the principle of price discrimination by charging out the nose for those willing to pay top dollar for small improvements as long as that is partially used to offset keeping the cost of their regular line lower. wink

Yep, there goal is "best bang for the buck" and in my opinion the current offerings can rival speakers costing much more. I would also hope they don't go down this path as it would go against their mission.

+1.

Also, didn't a 300$ pair of M3's recently hold their own against some higher priced B&W's in a listening test?

I think the on-wall series could use some SQ upgrading. It would also be interesting to see a bigger version of an on-wall, such as an on-wall M60 if it were possible to make the bigger speakers sound good in a smaller box. If the boxes were made bigger... Taller and a little thicker might help.

I suppose the one thing I can see that might be frustrating to current owners, and I have mixed thoughts, is the versioning over the years (V1, V2, V3, etc. ).

We always see new threads popping up saying "What is the difference between V2 and V3" for a particular model. Although the changes can be minor at times, it sure makes it difficult for a person to sell a "prior" version, unless they are willing to take a huge loss from what they paid new.

I can see the auction site being a huge benefit for Axiom, but not so much for those trying to sell pre-owned older versions.

Part of me wishes Axiom would not use version designations.

ps: ok I've had a few fat tires tonight. :0

I think without version numbers it would be really difficult to know what you are getting, when you are the buyer. Or, perhaps each label on the back should contain a manufacture date.
