nickbuol I cannot even begin to understand why someone would reply to a topic he did not read.


craigsub What difference does it make who was going to use the credit? Axion was getting speakers to resale I was going to get a gift card to resale. When I was informed I had to choose an item, I bought and paid for boxes instead. I understand you guys love Axiom but I did nothing wrong, I was not hiding anything from anyone.

Socketman If Focal was buying the speakers back to resale them for a profit why would they care? Honestly man do you think the trade up program is a gift? Do you think Axiom takes the speakers and burns them and only issues that credit because they love us. Also I would not need to call Focal becuase they unlike Axiom have a resale value. I have my VP180 listed for 400 dollars and can't get a single offer.

MatManBobbleHead Thank you I thought no one understood my point. You get it, and that means a lot. 90 dollars was not the problem, the delays where not the problem. The problem was that after 90 dollars and the delays I still had not gotten what I paid for.


In case anyone was wondering why nickbuol blocked me. It's because I tried explaining to him that. HDDVD had lost because, it had no advantages over BluRay. My facts about storage and price enraged him.

There should be a like button for posts like this.


And what do you call "The People's Republic of IL?"

2005 was 1/2 a decade before I got here. I couldn't have known you were already smarmed out. Jeesh!

Why not just block me? It will make you neither first nor unique. Same for me.

A point followed by a quip does not therefore make the point invalid. It's a matter of presentation, interpretation and personal taste or judgment.

I've said it quite plainly here, "I may be egalitarian, but I'm not for everybody."

It's OK Craigsub. No one posts here anymore. Every once in a while, there's a twitch. Not really a sign of life.

BTW, Debbie has provided me with EXCELLENT customer service in connection with 2 orders of M100s, and 2 orders of EP500s. All issues quickly and graciously resolved.

I am talking with her about upgrading my order for another EP500 to an EP600, only because she has been such a pleasure.

To the Angry Man, Axiom is in the audio equipment business, not the cardboard box business. Debbie attempted to accommodate you. Her efforts required follow up. You must be a very important person to have taken such offense from Axiom's error. Good luck getting personalized service from the folks at Focal.

You seem to be able to write but not read, Axiom is in the box selling business. They charged me 90 dollars for boxes. Axiom was not doing me a favor.

I hope you are using these subs in different rooms if not maybe you should look into buying 1 good sub instead.

I am going to take your advice and laugh at you, I mean you do seem to know it all.

Edited to add

What was personalized what Did Axiom make boxes just for me? You seem very upset about Focal, I don't expect personalized anything from anyone. I expect accountability.

Hi Griffith Strife,

Sorry to hear this went so badly. I am not really sure how this got so confusing and discombobulated. We were out of stock of M80 cartons for better than four weeks during this time. When they came in we shipped yours to you. That really should be the whole story here; but it seems we also ended up with Murphy's law in play.

If someone would of told me that, or if someone would of apologized for not telling me that. I would be a lot more understanding. The thing that really hurt was the 2nd shipment arriving the way it did.

I bought and paid for something that as far as I am concerned I never received. Everyone was nice but no one ever said sorry.

Ian I think it's a great thing that you interact here. That's the reason I fell in love with Axiom almost 14 years ago.

But after last year and this box fiasco, all I feel towards Axiom is sadness.

I wish you and everyone else here the best.

Grif, never said any of this so yeah your facts are in error.

Socketman If Focal was buying the speakers back to resale them for a profit why would they care? Honestly man do you think the trade up program is a gift? Do you think Axiom takes the speakers and burns them and only issues that credit because they love us. Also I would not need to call Focal becuase they unlike Axiom have a resale value.

Honestly I don't know why people go on the internet to whine. Shit happened its over , the end. Too much unwanted complaining these days. And there really is no need to attack other people (2x6 speeds) for their choices, its a well known fact that multiple subs help to even out bass response. Enjoy your focals and the music. Bye Bye

Richard

Mr. Strife ... $400 for the VP180? What's the finish? That's a smoking deal. And if you still have the M80's there, I would be interested in those as well. smile

Sorry I can no longer edit that post.
