If this is a daily ritual, I can see how the clear terminals would piss you off.

It is a daily ritual for me, at least some days... thanks for the setup smile

... and I think I prefer the new red/black to the older clear ones. I just finished putting the M3's back on the stands (I had them inverted on top of the M60s) and went back to M60s again.

Then again I don't believe I felt the clear ones looked particularly "sharp". I'll go and do a walkabout (I have a pretty good sampling across 10+ years of Axiom product) and confirm that.

I wouldn't make any changes that made things worse. Do no harm...
The color change was a bit of a shock but it really is a non issue. I just liked the feel of the clear ones.
Maybe it was the combined detail of the rings, gold, etc. The solid colors kind of remove that from a first impression.

hmmmmmm
Yeah point on the metal plate and shorting the connection.
How about flush mount though on the high end line
Point taken on the sticking out also, it would make it 2"
However if they were counter sunk and straight, not on a angle
they would protrude a bit more that one can see peaking around and not moving the speakers.
I like the look of the clear ones however, maybe more depth of the red/black ends 1/8" thick on the end.

Personally I'm not too concerned over the plastic binders as I use on-walls so they are completely hidden anyway. However it is a nice feeling see the gold connectors inside the clear plastic for a feeling of quality when you do the initial hookup. I'll maybe have more of an opinion when the M5HP's arrive.

Speaking of which, are there any updates on what's shipping from Axiom now between the M5's and QS10's? I'm still anxiously awaiting my shipping email and doing my best to be patient!!!!! whistle

Mine are custom finish so I'm not expecting them until some time in April. I'm going to be out at Boomershoot! in the second half of April so maybe I should ask the nice Axiom folks to hold onto them until I get back...

Received my Zone AMP + M3's yesterday. When the driver showed up I thought I was getting some M5HPs and/or QS10's as well but nope frown. I was told that shipping for the M5 and QS10 is expected to start this week (Today/Wednesday).

The newer M3's are a bit different from my old v2 version ones. I see what you all have been talking about now about the clear connector vs the red/black ones for the speaker wires. Also, I didn't know that the newer speakers have magnetic grills my old ones didn't smile. Having both an old v2 and the new M3 side by side I think the red/black is quicker to hook up at a glance by having the color front in center instead of a ring lower down on the connector.

Some days I think it's worth updating to v4 just to get the magnetic grills. I smile every time I remove or replace them.

BTW I think at least one of my Axiom pairs has the clear binding posts but I haven't found them yet.

So far the oldest ones have solid brass with a thin red/black ring, which looks sharp but I remember being a pain to hook up because I was usually looking end-on when plugging cables in and that was the one angle that did *not* allow you to see red/black. Ended up resorting to "red right returning" or some such thing.
