I don't remember. They've been rubbing and polishing them to a high state of perfection for quite a while!

I think it is Walnut Bordeaux high gloss. Could be wrong. They certainly look beautiful.

It looks like Actives are becoming quite the thing on among posters here. Guess we must love our audio to be willing to spend the time and money it takes to try for that last 2-3% ... at least for the current crop of 2 channel recordings. Enjoy 2x!

Thank you Mr. rriev, I sure hope to!

I got my first pair of Axioms (M3Tis) in 2002. I love Axiom speakers, from the M2s on up to the LFR1100As, all wonderful music makers!

I can't say the actives are the last 2 to 3%. I was never able to achieve with the M100 or any other Axiom what I've achieved with the actives. The actives, flanked by twin 500s, are all I could ever want. The 800 is icing. For the first time in 13 years, I can't see how I could possibly upgrade to anything else.

Mojo, there comes a point where you’ve eked out all you can from a two channel recording. We find our selfs searching for well recorded material with a sense of place, image, dynamics, and clarity of sound over the full response range. We assume we can always do better if we improve our system but at this point I think there is more to gain on the recording side and finding a format of multichannel delivery which takes it to the next level.

I suspect somewhere in the future we will be sitting in anechoic rooms with Who knows how many speakers emulating the environment with every instrument, singer,etc placed in 3D space around us.

For now, I think, I can pause and enjoy what I have for a bit.
