A few more questions that might help to herd the problem into a corner... - Is the DSP plugged into the same circuit as the other equipment ? Just checking on this one... I wanted to ask "how about switching off or unplugging the DSP and waiti

Matt, if I followed, the LFR DSP appears to be the only factor causing the hum. All your changes, including a different amp and pre-amp, didn't affect the hum problem as long as the LFR DSP was still in the circuit. There isn't any apparent way tha

OK, took the "ugly" down a bit but still need to work on the "straight"... The fabric isn't all that transparent (you can breathe through it easily but you know it's there) but I figure the room was a bit too dead anyways. The

Do you have Cable TV/Internet connected to that system? If so, that is a good place to start as troubleshooting found that was the culprit. My EP800s hummed as did my previous Velos. It was easily fixed on the 800s by unscrewing the Chassis Groun

If the plug is a 3 prong try lifting the ground. I use a modified 2 prong extension cord . Ground loop hum can be a real sob. My phono preamp picks up all kinds of stray EMI . Try moving the dsp as far away from everything else as you can as a test.

In the original post the OP wanted to shrink the footprint of the speakers. The 80's are big for sure.

True; however, according to what I've read from other disgruntled people trying to sell their speakers (especially Axioms) over the past couple of years, you probably will be even more disappointed to see what you can get for them on ebay. As far as

I'd just add a sub to your current system. I'm at a loss as to why people think a bookshelf speaker with stands is either saving a whole lot of space or money vs tower speakers...similar footprint, price gap narrows a fair bit if you're buying stands

John, thanks for the celestion placement tip. After submitting the M80v3's to the trade up program for an estimate, I was disappointed with the amount Axiom would allow. I do not blame them, but I cannot justify to myself the extra cost to trade

Thanks Nick. I hadn't thought about making the frame deep enough to include the air gap -- that's a great idea and takes care of the inevitable "gee why are your pictures sticking out from the wall ?" questions. Thanks ! I was eyeing anoth

Hey, glad that you are getting things figured out acoustically. My panels that I made were using custom printed fabric so that they were the standard "solid colored rectangle." A number of people over at AVS use this in a 24" x 36&quo

Our local Walmart stocks some decent looking material worth a look if you have one near by . Pick up some lumber and get the staple gun fired up . Nick can probly add to this as he made some for his theater. You definitely have a room that is working
