Yesterdays inquiry says another week before shipping.
I guess I'm a little disappointed with my own decision to delay the shipment. Again, not realizing it meant delaying production for a month.


All the wait will make you enjoy these more.... once they ship your're home-free soon after, shipping always seems quick...

Its a minimum of a 10 day wait once I get the notification.
The M80's took 2 weeks.

Damn , Axiom must be crazy busy. I live in the middle of nowhere and it only took a week though they lost one speaker and it took a couple days extra. They made a mistake and sent them ground and should have come by air, least that was what I was told. Hang in there, I am sure you will regret canceling your order.

I haven't cancelled and I won't.
Did I mention I've been running a phantom center while I wait, it seems to be the breaking point atm.
If I had ordered the single M80 I would have had it weeks ago.

Any HP owners notice any thing, subtle or not when using in their HT?

I received my HP 80's Tuesday. I got real wood this time. One of the boxes had a hole in it. The speaker's veneer is splitting down one side. The Axiom jewelry is missing the m. The speakers do look sweet in real wood.

The biggest thing I noticed right away everything seems to be cleaner, by that I mean more defined easier to identify the instruments. The sound is not muddy. I'm not saying the M80v3 is muddy this speaker just seems to be noticeably clearer more defined. These speakers are located in my home theater system.

Anyone else's thoughts?

Still trying to figure out how to post pictures on this site. I'm somewhat computer impaired. I did send the damaged picture's to Brent.

Check out this post I made on posting photos. It's a little dated now, but should still be helpful.
