Description
Another upgrade. Axiom has a new Rosewood so I've upgraded my speakers at the same time as changing the finish. The only speakers that I have now from my original system are my 2 M80's serving duties as my A side surrounds.

So now my system is composed of:

Fronts: LFR's V3 (can be classified as V4)
Center: VP180 V4
Side surrounds: A - M80's V2
B - QS8's V4
Rear surrounds: QS8's V4
Front Subwoofers: EP800's V4
Rear Subwoofer: EP500 V4

Powering 1 LFR and the VP180: Axiom ADA1500-8
Powering 1 LFR and 1 rear surround: Axiom A1400-8
Powering the rest of the surrounds: Denon POA-A1HDCI
Pre Pro: Denon AVP-A1HDCI
Monitor: 60" Pioneer Kuro PRO-141FD
Universal player: OPPO BDP-83
Telus Optic TV
Apple TV

Shoot me if I think about any more upgrades. I've also got to think about what I should do with my M80's. Upgrade, leave them as is or get rid of them.

I like the look of the black caps as well onn. The all white is just too sanitary. Your room looks great and I am sure it sound awesome as well.

Why do you have your LFR's connected to separate amps?

I've just finished re-setting the system up. Now I need time to start playing around to see if I "notice" anything different. I have notice that the LFR's do improve the soundstage and go a bit lower than the M80's did. The ADA does its job just like the A1400 does. It had no problems powering the LFR's and the centre when I had it set up that way.

I'm running out of space to "live" though. It's a good thing I'm solo, or I'd have a few problems.
