Steve has just launched the new Trade-Up. We have made it so you can just put in the serial number of your existing Axiom product and it will return what it would be worth if you traded it in. For pairs you only need to enter one of the serial numbers. There is a dropdown box to select the condition of the product you are trading-in and a place to select if you need pack and carton and if you would like to utilize our discounted return labels. Once you have your trade-in amount you can proceed if you like to put it into the shopping cart and go shopping for your new products.

If you do not know your serial number or it is too old to be in our most current data base (about six years old) then you can fill in a few questions about your existing product and the system will return your trade-in value.

You can check it out here http://www.axiomaudio.com/tradeup .

Your thoughts on this new tool would be greatly appreciated.

I believe using the serial # would simplify things for a number of people. Good idea.

This was fun to check. It should free up some time for the guys on your end reducing quote requests.

I put in the serial number on my LFR1100 just to test it, and it says:

Quote:
Select each product you will trade up:
M100 Left Floorstanding Speaker (Begins Shipping June 15th)
M100 Right Floorstanding Speaker (Begins Shipping June 15th)


Curious about the June 15th date, but I also wanted to point out that it says M100 instead of LFR1100.

What would you trade a LFR up to? There is nothing above it or do you know something that I don't?

Hi CV,

This is an interesting one and something that is likely to happen on the very first ones produced of any new product. Products in development are given a working model name or number in our system and that is updated to the real model after we have it and they start shipping. The LFR1100 working model was M100. It is not likely we will see the working model become a model all of its own later again but that is what happened in this case. Your LFR1100s were among the first few built so the info in our database was entered as the working model number. All the ones purchased after the first run or two would return LFR1100 as the model from the serial number.

Charles, just send them to me and I'll upgrade you with some classic Realistic Minimus-11 speakers.

Everyone knows that Classic stuff is just better.

I'll PM you my address.

Ahh, thanks for the explanation, Ian.

onn, I would only be trading up to the v4 if I did it. I was going to upgrade just the tweeters, but to get the full advantage of having them, I'd probably want the latest crossovers and DSP code, and I think I heard that there's new bracing in the cabinets. Would I even notice the difference? Maybe not, but it's my idle consideration at the moment.

Each of Mark's speakers is autographed by Regina Spektor. The fact that her handwriting resembles Mark's is purely coincidental.
