Ian,
If people want to upgrade to the V3s, would Axiom buy the V2s that we currently own?

My understanding is that the trade-up program is being replaced with the Axiom Auction program.

I was reading over in the 'whats new' thread, and apparently the V3's bring some significant changes in sound performance, including newly designed tweets and crossovers. Looks like I'd have to do the whole shebang. My only concern is mating my new VP180 with my old V1 M80's...will combining two different versions negatively impact a 'seamless' sound stage? Not trying to be overly negative here, but it seems us older Axiom owners who purchase the VP180 are sort of forced into making a change whether for aesthetics, performance, or both...

I am not sure that the auction program will be as beneficial financially to the current Axiom owners as the trade-up program offered by Axiom was. My M80s are only 5 months old so most of the components are the same as the V3s (so I was told) so if I have to loose $300/$400 just for the aluminum dust caps and the magnetic grills, I am not sure I would. Just my opinion.

There is no "all perfect" solution for anyone looking to sell used gear. In your case the trade-up program would probably be best.

I am new to the forum. Have had the M80's, VP-150, and EP-500 for a few months. Just tried to upgrade to the VP-180 and was told they are no longer taking trade-ups. So I guess I will have to stay with the 150.

That doesn't sound right. Who did you talk to?

Don't remember his name. But after thinking about it, I went back to the trade up page, entered the info again and it came up with the trade-up allowance, so I ordered online and already got a comfirmation on the order. So will see what happens.

I'm guessing there may have been a miscommunication--maybe he thought it was pre-order or something like that.
