What do you guys think about having Axiom provide more colurs ie Grey, Dark Maple, Piano Gloss black or having a new combo color design. I know that having all those different styles and colours would adversely bring up prices but you also want you speaker investment to make our better half "Happy Happy" with the rest of the room where your equipment is.

I still say to have the option of real wood veneer would be great.
I would pay the extra, but i guess the question is, would enough ppl pay the extra to make it worthwhile for Axiom?

I think a lot of people would pay the extra bucks for a wood veneer. It would also open up Axiom to the real "audiophile" market, where people don't even flinch at spending upwards of 3 grand for speakers.

If not real wood, a high gloss piano finish would be a HUGE success...the Acoustic Research HC6 looks like it costs far more than 800 bucks.

My vote would be for a real wood veneer option and I would have paid more for it

I have talked to Amie before about this. I believe the piano gloss black is available for a couple of hundred bucks more. I know sometimes eggshell white is available but I think thats it.

I missed your post before.

It actually pisses me off a bit that this information isn't made available. I now have $2500 worth of speakers I would have gladly paid a bit more for a high gloss finish. That's a bit disappointing.

But you know High gloss finish is good for a year. After that all of those scrapes, bumps and stuff you place on top of your speakers will show. My sub is piano gloss black. Its only 3 months old. I see areas where it looks like a SOS pad went scratching away. And i don't even know what did it. Have to check with the better half. Hopefully she did not use it as a ladder when I was away since she is only like 5'0"

Saturn is right.

We used to have a piano at home, it got scratched a dirty far too easily. However, real wood, that I would pay for. Totem speakers are VERY nice in mahogany..
