I agree with Jack, yet I'm also excited about the wood veneers. I think there are people out there that don't take vinyl-clad speakers serious, no matter how good they sound. This might expand Axiom's clientele in some upper-markets!

If I knew about the wood I might have waited for them. I guess I will have two systems in my home.

The veneer materials are more expensive than vinyl, but labor is about the same. I prefer to work with veneer over vinyl any day. I hate vinyl and can’t for the life of me get it set wrinkle free……

Start up costs will have to absorbed as well. But other than that, I don’t expect the costs for this option to be that painful. Hopefully under 15%.

I almost bought Rockets for their appearance. The wood veneer is a great idea. I’m very glad to see Axiom doing it.

Rest assured, the vinyl stays! Mdrew, as soon as you know what woods you are looking at, let me know and I'll try to get you some ballpark pricing. Things like Oak, Pine, Maple, etc we are starting to work with right now.

Amie, will there be a set pricing with the wood veneer speakers? Or will the price vary depending on type of finish? Thanks.

Oh my, this is some startling news. I'm never going to visit a certain non-Axiom message board again since us 'vinyl wrappers' will be the butt of jokes forever once the veneers become popular.

Even if the wood finishes were available when I bought my speakers most likely I would have gone with the vinyl. I for one put more merit into how it sounds than the finish. Of course I need to see at what premium the wood will cost.

Trade ins? 'Cause I could use some speakers that actually match the entertainment center...

Ken, that brings up an interesting point. It would be nice as an option to specify a certain stain - say Minwax #2126 (Driftwood) for example. That way you could easily match the other woodwork in your room.

Exactly. I'd like white oak with Early American stain. Quartersawn, please.
