yea...I sold my Energy RC30's & LCR today but I just ordered some m22 & m2 in/on-wall speakers to complete my front soundstage. I had a minor issue with my gift certificate but Brent quickly resolved it. Fwiw...I really wanted the piano black high gloss finish but had to settled on the black oak... I just couldn't cope with doubling the cost of the speakers...althought I loved that finish... frown

I'll post some pic's later once I've installed them and we'll be replacing the carpet throughout the main floor so it will be awhile.

Thanks guys... smile

Congrats Bill. Make sure to post pics of the WIP and installation too. I think you're gonna love the new setup.

Congrats. I agree all those custom wood or Piano finishes look incredible but the added cost quickly kills the price advantage Axiom has over the competition.

I was open to other custon finishes as well but the piano gloss would have best matched the bezel of my panny. I'll definitely take some pic's of the WIP and you can be sure I'll ask some follow up question wink. The end of the month seems about right to me ...I'll have to fit this at some point before the hardwood is installed. smile

Cheers, Bill

he he..I already changed my sig!

Hey guy's my speakers arrived. I did a quick examination and they appear to be in perfect condition. Now the wait begins untill the installation process because of our pending reno...I hate the waiting game.... frown









Ps: I tried to use the sub forum gallery but my pic's wouldn't fit, so I used photobucket...

Any advice on how 2 re-size when using this forum's image upload, Bill... smile

Bill, congrats! You can resize your photos using Photobucket's photo editing online software; it's pretty handy.

Congrats on the new arrivals Bill! One small suggestion while you're waiting to install them - plug each one in to an existing amp just to make sure all the drivers are ok. They should be fine but stuff happens - and there's nothing more frustrating than doing the final installation and then discovering there's an issue when all you want to do is crank em up! That way you know you'll be good to go when the installation day finally arrives. Looking forward to seeing some install pics and your 1st impressions.

Cheers,
