You could always give me a call and I could have them hospitalized on the grounds that they were a danger to others.

Ok, I jumped on the bandwagon. Can't wait to see my wife's eyes when she gets a gander at how big this thing is going to be. I can't wait to hear this puppy!!

At that point, tell her about the speaker. She won't mind so much.

I bet you wouldn't be as open to or smiling about such comments/criticisms or opinions made towards Axiom speakers.

I find this recent trend of second-guessing praise for and/or general support of Axiom and its product extremely curious. Is it really that surprising that I tend to see things Axiom's way? Their design philosophy and their finished products speak to me. I am not too arrogant to realize that this is not the case for everyone. So no, if somebody thought Ian's speakers were so bad that they recommended he put himself out of his misery, then I'd just shrug and continue to enjoy my Axioms.


I agree wholeheartedly with Peter's point here. If we didn't like the speakers and philosophy, we wouldn't be here. Surprise?

The VP180 would be an excellent timbral match to the M60s, and, for that matter, to the M22s.

Regards,

Okay, a match for M22's! I want my inwall-onwall vp180!

I'm in to "Sawzall Surgery" so no install complications here.

Dr. House if Alan had revealed the name of the 'pretty piano black' speaker in question, then perhaps I could agree with your statement. But seeing as he was a gentleman about the situation and left it anonomous, then I see no harm in the joke at all. In fact I find it quite humorous.

You have to realize that Ian takes all this stuff very seriously... DEAD seriously to be exact. So when he auditions a speaker costing more than his own brand, and it performs horribly, I don't blame him at all for feeling that way.

I don't know Ian personally mind you, but I get the impression he really would be mortfied if his products performed poorly.

Loc: It's all about the location.
The other point I believe Alan was making is that there are a few manufacturers out there who concentrate more on aesthetics than performance to hook the consumer.
