Yep...looking forward to seeing the pricing as well. Please don't scare us!

Now that this thread is back on track...

Fantastic show, Ian! It's really great to see Axiom branching out into new areas. I'm still surprised by how small the EP400 is - wish I could hear it!

I'd like to make a suggestion for the VaSSallo series.

Perhaps you could give customers the option of having or not having the grills and associated grill mounting holes.

Personally, if I someday acquired a finish as lovely as that burled walnut, I'd want to see as much of it as possible all the time and not be distracted by the mounting holes.

Ian, it is very gracious of you to participate in this dialog. Thank you very much for your time in this regard, and especially for your ongoing work.

Some very interesting innovations there.
Will the frequency graphs be posted on these new products? Ever a scientist, i love to see the numbers.

I'm curious how the wireless speakers will pan out. I've read so many reports about poor speaker response with wireless systems, but perhaps no one has taken the serious time to work towards building a proper unit. Funny how Ian mentioned it would make a good item for a boat considering i just threw up a post on buying yachts...coincidence? Or a ploy for my pocket book?


And when is the show coming out west?

Or, as has been suggested numerous times in the past, magnetic grills! No unsightly holes, and it still leaves you the option of having the grills in place or not.



I've put a pair of M3's with a nice Vassallo finish in my in-box numerous times. They're just sooo beautiful! Magnetic grills might just put me over the edge. ...god, Roger would kill me. LOL!

I was speechless for a momment. Truely amazing products. I too am drooling over the computer speakers, I can hear my wife now...."It's just a computer, WHY do you need such expensive speakers for it?"

I've been intrigued with wireless speakers for a long time myself especially for my boathouse. These speakers with the requisite electronics are supposed to provide uncompressed transmission which is where the real innovation may reside. Most of the wireless speakers I have examined suffered from poor fidelity as a result of compression.

The other interesting aspect of the wireless speaker at the exhibit was the solar power supply which was also a neat innovation.

Tomtuttle,

With the Vassallo series each one is custom made so to order them without grilles (and thereby without the associated receptacles in the speaker) is no problem right now on any model. We could make that an option on the Vassallo grille selector on the site for no grille. This would bring this option to everyone’s attention.
