You will probably end up getting a replacement amp. The humming, crackling and blowing of fuses you are experiencing you will not be able to fix on your end.

That is what I thought also. Especially after reading the thread by Zak. I thought the fuse would take care of mine. Didn't have any burning smell. At least it is under 2 years old so still have the warranty.

Interesting they need a pic versus serial# which usually tells them the mfg date. Anyway they should make it right if it is under warranty...Randy

steve, my ep-600 version 1 amp just started blowing fuses... it blew 2 fuses and now i have an "amp box" on the way.. did you check to see if you happened to blow the fuse again? mine is now blowing fuses on power up... did you re-check your fuses, to verify that your amp did not blow another fuse?

Good luck.

sirquack, he could have bought his sub in a transition period switching from one version of the amp to another maybe?

When I turn on the power the light comes on. So it appears it is getting power now. I got an email from Brent and the tech guys won't be in until Monday. So he will let me know next week about the amp. I have the M80s so I can still enjoy music without the sub for the next few days. Just miss it if we would watch a movie.

no kidding man, that sucks. I was watching Tron the other night with my boys, and the bass was intense.

I was reading the thread on the guy that had the problems with his M80s and the Onkyo. He ordered the QSC and didn't think the M80s had enough bass. Anyway, I think for just music they are pretty impresive. I have some music that I think the sub adds some bass. But for the most part I can still enjoy the M80s without. But like you said, the sub really makes watching movies so much more fun. I have friends that are really amazed when there are some good scenes that make the room shake.
Will let you know what the outcome is. I know they are going to take care of it. Just need to match up the amp.

Well I used to believe that my M22's lacked bass, but after hooking them up on my recently bought vintage amp; can say that am more than satisfied with my purchase now. Maybe my Denon 3310 does not have much power to handle the speakers properly. The sound is so good that if my system were just for music I would skip buying a sub. smile Now my Axioms can be properly enjoyed.

I also have a set of M22s for my living room. Just for stereo and listening to the tv for better sound. Just received them last Monday. I am using a pioneer VSX 915 for the living room. The 22s didn't sound all that great with that receiver. I took them down to the basement and tried them on the Onkyo 3007. Wow, what a difference. Must be something not right on the Pioneer. It is suppose to be 100w and that should be more than enough. But when turning them up to moderately high level they sound horrible. Like you said though, with the Onkyo I was really suprised at the bass that came from those little speakers.

I'd be interested on what happens now, if you swap receivers, and leave the speakers where they are.
