Dakkon, I got couple Parasound A21 laying around so I was thinking if I get the bi-amp LFR I could always run through that first. IF I get LFR smile

That would certainly work. I have mine hooked to a four channel Axiom ADA1500 which is excellent.

Just to give you an idea, the LFR's do benefit from a good bit of space behind them. I myself also use mine in an HT room but it is rather on the small side. I initially set them up in the same spots where I'd had a pair of M80's and found them excellent. Then I moved them forward as much as is possible and found them even more excellent.

As long as you can position your LFR's a good foot or two further from the wall from where your M80's currently are I'm sure you'll be very happy with the sonic results!

Hi Cohesion, thanks for chiming in. I just measured the distance of my M80s to the back wall. They are about 55cm which is almost of 2 feet. How far are your LFR set from the backwall currently?

Update:

I came home early from work tonight started to do some home theatre room wiring/ setup calibration. First I carefully reposition the axiom speakers and EP800 sub, then I ran Audyssey MultEQ XT32 through my Onkyo TX-NR5009 and tested the sound off Parasound amp to make sure everything sounded the way should be. I then hooked up and fired up the JVC DLA-RS-65 and proceeded to calibrate the 4K image fired onto 120" 2.35:1 Stewart firehawk screen via Spyder4Elite. Couple hours later, I finally go to my favorite part of the night; putting "The Dark Knight Rises" BD disk into OPPO 105D and got to enjoy my hard work...lol..

I am happy to report so far Epic 80.800 lived up to my expectation and more. I would like to congratulate Axiom team for a job well done. What a fun night!

I decided to get a set of high power LFR1100 with fully balanced DSP in the end.

Wife CAN NEVER know about this or she got me for life lol

Hi Turbo,

I'll measure them tomorrow and let you know! Cheers!

I've been going back and forth on these two models also for a long while and am very interested in what your comparisons are. I'm glad Axiom seems to becoming more mainstream lately with what appears to be more people buying their speakers, because this means there will be more opinions out there from people that are actually using them in their homes, instead of just professional reviews. When the LFRs first came out in their first year there only seemed to be a small handful of people that actually had them and would discuss about them on forums.

did you get a DSP channel for your vp180?

That is the exact same setup that i've got. Now, you'll need to decide which XLR cables to get..

I wound up going with monoprice cables. I was previously using Kimber kable Hero XLR's.. But decided to go with monoprice cables when i got my LFR's... From an electrical engineering point of view, there is no advantage to the kimber kables over the monoprice. The main difference is the quality of the connectors used.. But, for something that is pretty much static that's a moot point in my book.


Good luck.. Your secret is safe here.. As long as your wife doesn't know your screen name..... smile
