Its less like you're listening to the movie and more like you're in the middle of the movie, if that makes sense.
And I agree, voltage=voltage, shouldn't make any difference if it comes from an Onyko receiver or an Axiom amp, right? Only thing I can figure is, even at moderate volumes, the power required to fill my big great room (10,000+ cubic ft?) with sound is way more that the Onkyo can cover at all times, and thus distorts to a certain degree. While the ADA1500 has no problem, with room to spare, even at high volume (which I've experienced btw, and its just wicked cool).
I really feel like, for the first time, I've stepped completely into this mystical "Audiophile" world. Cool place to be.



As you can see there was a wink at the end of my reply. I have from the start advocated getting an external amp (I run a Rotel RB1080) and buy as much power as you can comfortably afford. I'm glad your liking your new toy; enjoy. This was long before it was popular.

Well, after getting 5% off and going over my budget, I'll be able to order an ADA-1250 3 channel amp for $1,966.50 on August 23rd, barring any emergencies. smile

"going over my budget"


This seems to be a common issue my friend.. I think you should take my approach... Forget the budget....

Probably the worst thing for an Economist to say.. But... everyone needs some indulgences..

Can anyone comment on how much ventilation these amps need? Do they get very hot?

Am thinking about going big with a 7 channel 1000 or maybe even a 1250 next spring.

Bayne, you should check out the class of operation for those amps that interest you;
class D runs very cool, and class A/B runs much warmer.
class F, as on my amps, runs very cool too, but maybe a little bit warmer than class D. the warmest air coming out of my amps, at the fan outlet, is about 40 Celsius.
