There was a notice at the top of the page about an increase due to the dollar and today was the day. It said something to the effect of locking in your price. I grabbed some QS8's from the B Stock store, I can not afford full retail the way the prices keep increasing, stupid economy frown

The Bank of Canada lowered it's interest rate again today causing our dollar to drop yet again. A couple of years ago we were the darling of the G7 (8?) that could do no wrong. We were seen as the poster child for properly attempting to manage our budget & spending as contrasted to all the rest. Our dollar was basically par for quite a while.

Well, our policy has continued to where we have a more or less 'balanced budget' - almost unheard of these days - but our dollar is now tanking against the US whose deficit & debt (amongst other counties) is still increasing, astronomical & not sustainable.

I don't get it. Unfortunately, Axiom & all other Canadian companies have to do what they have to I guess...

Perception, my friend. Even though oil production really only makes up about 3% of Canada's total GDP, in the eyes of some international investors, we are still perceived as a commodity economy and along with the over supply of oil in the world, prices over the last year have plummeted resulting in the dropping dollar. The economy also is some what limping along tied in generally with the U.S. economy whose alleged turnaround, in the eyes of many economists is a sham. There you have fewer people employed than before the financial meltdown, stagnating wages along with what is now a weak retail sector. It is called the global economy and it affects everyone.

With Iran possibly being allowed to pump oil again, watch the cost of crude drop again.

When crude undertook it's dramatic fall a few months ago to less than half price, our retail gas prices plummeted as well, as they should have; however, it was really short lived here.

Funny how our gas prices on the west coast rapidly rose again (roughly equivalent to $120/BBl of crude) to where they are hovering around $1.25/Liter today. All of the savings that consumers were going to realize by significantly cheaper gas in order to pour into other segments of the economy - as predicted by the so-called experts - didn't happen.

OPEC's plot to maintain pumping excess oil & force us into economic submission is working. Again the oil companies continue to do really well.

I don't get it...

But the fun side of it will be when the cost of oil goes back up to the $100~120/BBl of crude, the price of gas will jump up to closer to the $2 ~ 2.25/L in response to the cost of oil. They will say it has to go up because crude has gone up.

So much for the benefit of direct internet sales without middleman. So much for the great cost/value ratio which endeared Axiom to so many.

Giant killers no more.

The replacement for the Paradigm Studio 100 series is the Prestige 85F ... Dual 6.5 inch drivers ... 41 inch tall, 57 pound cabinet ... etc ...

This competes directly with the M80's ... The Paradigms are $3998 per pair vs. $1620 per pair for the M80's from the outlet.
