Axiom Niagara (or the N7)

Here I go with the nature theme again, but here's why:

My initial impression of the gently curved face plate conjured up images of Niagara Falls and it's curved face. From there we think of the awesome power of the falls, and of course the awesome power of this amp. The falls is also a natural "surround" environment (If you've ever been on the Maid of the Mist you know exactly what I'm talking about), and this is the perfect amp for a home 'surround' system. Imagine the falls as your screen and the amazing power of the Axiom Niagara amplifier is enveloping you with clean, pure sound! Besides, "Niagara" just sounds strong.

Want to take it down a notch? Sit back with a glass of wine from the famous Niagara wine region with the amp in 2 channel mode and relax knowing that every note is as sweet and refined as the wine you are drinking.

You know you're not gambling with the Axiom Niagara amp! (Okay, sorry... I'm reaching a bit there, but I had to throw a casino reference in for fun).

Cheers!

(fingers crossed, again!)

Ok spish, here in Ontario there is a bylaw stating that you can't have consecutive wins within a 6 month period...

I should note with all my entry names "8 channel amp" can be replaced with "1400"

IE: Axiom Omega 1400 Digital Amp, Axiom Alpha 1400 Digital Amp, Axiom Avant-Garde 1400 Digital Amp.

Wow, there are already alot of good names, there will be some broken hearts with this contest, thats for sure!

can we get clarification on how many channels the amp actually has? i see the specifications show 200 watts with all 7 channels driven which equals 1400 watts, but there is no mention of the power with 8 channels driven, only mention that there is an 8th channel.

if in fact the amp does have 8 channels, I revise the abbreviation in my entry to "N8", as opposed to "N7".

There is already a Vasallo series, so why not the Amie 1400.

here's a bit of fun to go along with my submission:



and the story goes:

The Falls gave power to the Power Plant.

The Power Plant gave it's energy to the Aluminum factory.

The Aluminum factory sent it Aluminum to Axiom.

Axiom designed a beautiful amp with the factory's Aluminum.

The Amp drove the speakers that made the customers happy!

Of course, The Falls was so impressed with the power and efficiency of Axiom's new amp, it was generous enough to lend it's name. Niagara.

(yes, it's a slow work day)
