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 chatted with the guys at the cork house and they did mention that a floating floor will have some give to it. The up side is it's very easy to install.

As for the floor moving when the subs are a rockin.. is that a really bad thing. Lets you know that they are working well.

I drawback of the cork is if you're moving the EP800's around without help they will gouge into the cork. Don't ask me how I know that. mad

I made some more changes to my system this weekend.

My A1400-8 was on it's last legs with channels starting to crash on me.:(
My ADA1500-8 just didn't sound "right". The front sound stage was lacking in comparison with my surrounds. I couldn't figure out why it made my LFR's sound passive. It joined my A1400-8 in the basement.

Replacements are 3 Crown XLS2500 amps
One for each LFR and the third for the centre.

I also have intermittent problems with one of my EP800's (clicking noises).

Done for now I hope.

Ouch. Sorry to hear of your issues. I'm surprised about your ADA1500. Let us know how the Crowns work out.

Why would you not warranty a $5000 amplifier. I need to move to Alta and make some of that big oil sands money smile Did you mean your repurposed it??

There is a 5 year warranty with the Axiom amps. This is the second one I have used since the first one started smoking once I started using it. My current ADA is starting to collect dust with my A1400-8 in the basement. I could send it back to Axiom to see if they can find anything wrong with it and that may happen soon. I might send it back with my EP800 that's having issues.

The Crown amps are working great so far. Slightly better than my A1400. To my ears at least.
