I just want to thank the Colquhouns for conducting their lives and business in a way that reflects the world as I'd like it to be.

I regret my inability to attend the function, but Axiom has earned my ongoing loyalty and respect.

My life is happier because of not only my Axiom purchases and the relationships I continue to build on the boards, but also because of the knowledge that new friends were made in this very special setting.

Thank you to Ian, Amie and the Axiom staff.

Can you write my Christmas cards this year, Tom? Very nicely said.
I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Thanks Amie.

It was a pleasure to meet you, Ian, Alan, Joe, Tom, and many others.

My wife and I were impressed with the facility.
You could eat off the floors.

I was amazing how the cabinets are CNCed in one piece, and folded over to form the speaker.

What impressed us most was the people who work at Axiom.
Everyone was smiling and very passionate about their work.
I asked Ian during the slideshow what his staff turnover was.
His reply was a serious "Zero"!

Thanks to Joe for taking me and my wife on the tour, as we arrived at 1pm, missing the original tour.

Thanks to Tom for the suggestions on getting rid of my annoying humm from the cable company. Problem solved.

The speaker testing room convinced me (and more importantly my wife) to order an EP500 later this year when our home renovations are completed. Alan provided some excellent input for our room. Hearing some of my favourite demo CDs with this subwoofer was unbelievable!

Definately be ordering some inwalls for the kitchen and hallway when they come out.

It was kewl to see some speaker cabinets for a prototype M100 (3 woofers, 3 mids, 3 tweeters).

It was interesting to hear that the Axiom Website is redundantly hosted in Montreal, and that the Axiom factory has a wireless link on the top of the dust collector pointing at the Dwight public school for their high speed internet access.

Thanks Axiom for a wonderful day.

Thanks for the reports - I can only hope to attend the next Axiom Picnic!

I am sure the pictures do not so the trip justice. I have one question - did the Anti-Standing Wave Cake improve cake eating efficiency and increase the size of the sweet spot?

Prototype??? M100??? What?? You can’t just leave us non-attendees hanging…….

At least give us a tentative release date, purty please? I’ll wait around for them and move the 80’s to the HT and get the 100’s for my stereo system.

Classic moment at the picnic - as the speaker-cake began to melt in the sun, and the M-chocolates sagged, Ian turned to Rebecca, the baker, and said "Guess those are seconds now."

I really want to move my surround M3s to the dining room system, but can't just yet, need those 6.5s out back to balance the fronts

We were all having such a good time at the picnic that we never had a chance to assemble the Coalition for a Ported Center Channel and give Ian a piece of our minds
