I don't know, I think the minimum needed is four channels of external amplification for a pair of LFRs.

The left and right pre-outs go into the DSP box, and that provides outputs for the left-front, left-rear, right-front, and right-rear drivers. Each of those arrays needs their own amp channel.


I missed that info, so you are probably right.

Make that a XPA-5, use four channels for the LFR, remaining channel for the VP180.

Leave QS8 on the Onkyo!

And as I said earlier, don't forget to order the DSP box with the additional processing for the VP180. smile


I wonder if Axiom could whip up an additional DSP filter for vertical M60/M80 centers?

There will be a DSP for M80v3 (I dont remember asking for M60). There will be 2 variations: 2 channels and 3 channels. The 3 channels version will be for the M80+VP180 combo.

Some late M80V2 have V3 components inside so they will work with the DSP. If you don't have V3 components, forget the DSP.

I thought I read there'd also be a multi-DSP option for two LFR1100s+VP160/VP180. What I was wondering about is a two LFR1100, plus M60 or M80 center instead of the VP-series. Sounds like if they already have the curves for using M80s as mains, then they'd just have to load that for the center instead. That is provided I didn't misremember about the LFR+VP option.

I think you need to bribe Andrew! I suspect they could make custom version of the box if you manage to find his favorite beer! wink

I saw&heard the LFR in person and they are GRREEEEAT. I just don't have any rooms they could fit in.

has anyone seen the side of the DSP box for the input and output of the cables? if so, could we get a picture of it so we can all know what it looks like. since there are a couple different versions how about the one just for the LFR1100 L&R (2 channel in) and the one for the M80v3 L&R, VP180v3 C, 3 channels in.

I'm mostly interested in the latter to see if I decide to go with it for my existing setup (which has the 3 speakers listed) where to put it as well as how it looks.

please & thank you!

I've seen it but I don't have a picture of the rear. Really standard stuff 2 inputs.. and 4 outputs.

This is the DSP. All versions should be using that specific case.

I'd be pretty surprised if one of these has even been built, yet.

Remember, the DSP box is only being launched now, in conjunction with the new speaker. Just because the same concepts may be developed for V3 models and in different configurations doesn't mean that they are "available".
