I hate to admit it, but I agree that Axiom isn't the company to do this. However, I do still think the way they're being made needs to be reconsidered. I would love it if the architecture was a bit more open and there were more software options. It would probably have to be an industry-wide change to make it worthwhile, but how long are they really going to go on releasing new models every year instead of just allowing people to drop in faster chips and perhaps some new I/O cards and download new software? I feel like I should be able to download and use Trinnov or Audyssey on whatever processor I have. I'm sure there are a lot of potential pitfalls with this idea, but it should be possible, right?

Anything is possible for the right price, but are you willing to pay that price?

I know one of the Integras used to have card slots, but I don't know if they took real advantage of it. But yeah, that's why it would have to become the industry standard. If only one or two makers use it, it's just a feature they feel they can bump up the price over.

I think the prices would be elevated anyway as the cards would be the only thing required when upgrading etc. So it would have a high initial cost and then the cards would be a large fraction of that initial cost.

I just read a review on the new Integra 80.1 pre-pro but I don't remember any mention of user upgradeability...

Hmm. MSRP of $2800.

That seals the deal, I'm buying one for everybody.

I knew you were rich when I realized that the Nissan Maxim you drive is just the Nissan body over a Maserati 3200GT chassis and engine. You sneaky bastard.
