Hey guys, we really do have a lot to be thankful for. We are staying with our daughter and son-in-law in West Virginia right now. So we are staying cool here. We had no damage, just no electric. So not going to complain too much just because I can't listen to my speakers. A lot of people have no water or electric and are suffering in some really hot weather right now.
I have never seen such widespread power outages like this. All towns within 50 miles of us and everything between had no power. It is slowly coming back now.

how the heck are you on the internet without power. Unless you live on gilligans island and the professor has some coconuts rigged up.

Staying with family that got their power back up already. Going to be a long time for a lot of us getting power back. They are saying some could be as long as 4 weeks.

I'm eager for Friday even if I don't get to try the speakers out that day.

Yeah, I'd also be excited to get them even if I couldn't hear them!

Well, the Fedex guy finally showed up around half past noon yesterday. He hauled the boxes up to the front porch on a dolly and I carried them in the house up two steps.

I actually tweaked my back out doing that, as Amie says" warm up" first. So I got them into the house and opened the first box, got the outriggers out(which are very nice)and they went on inside the box.

I flipped the box upside down, low and behold they hit the ceiling taking them off,lol.If it was two inches lower I would have been hooped.

I opened the DSP box and took it out, man it's built like a tank, I likey! I looked around for a power cord but nothing was in there. I guess they knew I have an extra aftermarket PC for it. grin

I just have to find a spot for it and then measure up the XLR cables, order them, then wait some more.So I probably won't get them until next week some time, all I can do is admire them for now.

P.S.

I would just like to thank Ian, Amie, Andrew and all the crew for the wonderful gear. Thanks for throwing the center board in for me Ian.

Sorry about your luck, Steve, the weather is pretty brutal lately. At least you've got a cool place to stay in the meantime.

Hi Everyone,

My condolances to those unable to listen to their new LFR's due to lack of electricity! Changing the subject a bit, I would be getting my pair soon but for a bit of a communication snafu (to which I was a party) regarding a custom wood finish I was considering. Due to various delays in this process I just got these details sorted.

In case any of you out there were wishing you got in on the preorder there may be one pair up for grabs in any finish you want as long as it's Boston Cheery. It seems while I thought my initial order was on hold while working on the possible finish options, Axiom was actually building them. Thus we may see a pair up for grabs in the Auction section unless Axiom has some other use for them - or one of the forum members does some good begging to the right people!

I received the DSP and the accessories, and I anticipate getting the speakers tomorrow. Here are some pics of what I did get, though:
