Maple.. that's like Canada's Wonderland area. A heck of a shorter distance than going up to Dwight.

I am wondering as I know that you have LFR1100's if it would be possible if I could arrange some time to visit with DSP and an Amp in toe and give it some tests against a known working unit? They are pretty sure that the issue is not inside the speakers, and they are the Q-B to move around. But an Amp and DSP will easily fit in the back seat and love to go for a drive.

The last time that I spoke with Axiom it looked like I would be taking a drive up there with my amp and DSP and leaving it with them for a week or so.

I am thinking now that you are quite a bit closer and if your equipment doesn't do what mine does, then there is little argument that can be had when I say HEY.. its been tested and ...

People are like a box of chocolates. It's hard to tell initially which ones are nuts.

Hi Matt,

Yes, I'm certainly closer than Dwight but actually a bit further than Wonderland. I'm almost in Richmond Hill -- the wrong side of Maple for you!

Anyway, yes, I'd be happy to have you come over and bring your DSP and amp. When would you like to do this? Evening or weekend?

I am sure if there were any hum in my LFRs I'd have heard it by now but our first step will be to have you listen to my existing system to confirm this. You may want to bring a CD, DVD, or Bluray that is familiar to you. Is your current hum/hiss constant or does it vary depending on source material?

We may want to get some direction from Axiom but I'm guessing the first thing to try would be switching your DSP with mine. If that doesn't result in any unexpected hiss or hum I would think it essentially rules out your DSP as being the cause of the problem.
