Well the M80's arrived today!

Fully aware that my old yammy would probably shut down since I listen to cranked levels, I wasn't too thrilled yet...


You had me for a minute. What did you mean that you weren't too thrilled yet?



WHWWHAHA!, You got me Bob, heck I left work early just meet the fedex driver! \:\)

I've been checking the yammy for heat since I've been cranking for the last 2 hours and to my surprise, it's barely warm.

That is consistant with what I was told abaout Yammys. One model will have a great power section, the next will be anemic.

Enjoy the tunes while you wait for your new amp.

Hi Dduval

I am glad you are enjoying the M80's.

I suspect that you will hear less distortion at loud levels (100 db+) with the Emo due to the increase in headroom. At lower levels, probably not so much, but I am interested to hear your thoughts when you get it. I am of the school that most amplifiers sound pretty much the same, unless you are spending really big bucks $3000 or more. The most important thing to remember about an amplifer is the quality of it powersupply.

Personally I think you have more to gain upgrading a pre-amp. I think this can colour the sound much more than the power amp.

Keep us informed and enjoy your new speakers!

Yea Paul I agree 100%

Just started to upgrade, so the goal is to definitely get a good pre amp down the road (sooner than later I hope). I was actually thinking of maybe a Denon 3808 to use as a pre, then I can use the rest of the 3808 to power my center and surrounds, and of course eliminate some cords with HDMI inputs.

I get a little perplexed here, I have always wondered if a standalone pre is better (sound quality wise)than a AVR used as a pre...your thoughts??

Did you look behind the fridge? When I lose something, it is frequently behind the fridge.
:sigh: waiting can be long...

Glad to hear that you are enjoying them. I remember my first couple of songs buzzing through them and it really was incredible. I have a couple very capable amps/receivers to use with my 80's but my only AVR is an old Sony ES1000. I have had no issues with shutdown or anything that I notice as distortion at very high SPL's. Note my room is not very large so the amp section doesn't have to work all that hard as the M80's are very efficient. I hope your new Emotiva works well for you. I looked on the sight and it is really a nice looking piece. Keep enjoying your new speakers and be sure to let us know how everything works out when your amp comes. Have fun.

Fred, would you care to enlighten the rest of us as to why your socks would be behind Eric's refrigerator?

On second thought, never mind.
