it's not overkill, but spare power which you never know how much of it you will need next time.
short to very short peaks in the signal can easily be 10-20 dB higher than the average value.

True. Maybe that's why XLS sounded so wonderful as I have done more listening in the past 6 hours. I hooked the OPPO 105D directly to the amp via XLR and I must say I was really enjoying the sound that came out of the 11lbs package!

Howard, I think I saw pictures of your new speakers on the Axiom FB page yesterday. Eggshell? They're gorgeous.

Tom, thx for the heads up. I just saw it on facebook too. Yes, it's eggshell white and I like it (I always liked clean look). Maybe I will refinish it to pearl white paint, dunno yet but we will see! The only downside to lighter color is that they reflect too much light back to my projection screen. But I made a special cover for it so when I am watching movie it's pitch dark smile

They do look gorgeous, but after seeing ONN's, I am a bit spoiled for liking having the black dust cap if you are having the speakers without the cover. I understand that the other speakers aren't that way so it's a bit harder to switch mid field.

But stunning all the same.

Yeah Onn's black cap is very nice too.

Update:

I finally had more time to play around with Crown Amp. I decided to CNC a new faceplate that will replace the original Crown one which will make it "look" nicer!

Overall shot


Everything lines up nicely. I like how they arrange the heatsink. Clever engineering.


Heart of the amp. Crown/TI drivecore chip


Power switch
http://www.solteam.com.tw/solteam/pdf/10/05_PS-5.pdf

That's where the first mod is going to take place. We are going to implement a different type of power button and as well as a handy remote 12V trigger :-)


I am going to monitor the max temp the heatsink will go to without the aid of fan and evaluate how to make this into passive cooling.

Also, The blue LED can be annoying so I am going to find out a way to disable that.


More to come...

-Howard

Disable a blue LED ???
Blasphemy!!!

Sorry, I'm a sucker for blue LEDs. I won't even turn off the one in my car stereo and I'm sure it is actually reducing my nighttime vision.

Blue display is nice when you are doing the adjustment, but say if you are watching a movie via then it may not be so nice. Solution? Maybe using something simple to code like arduino to control the backlight. Say if you hit any button on the front panel it lid up the blue backlight for x secs. I think that would work the best in this situation.
