I wanted to think of single name that had meaning, coherency, and "holding power". A name that could hold its own and didn't sound too cliched. (i.e. something like the "Dominator 8000")

What comes to mind with Axiom's new amp?

  • Power
  • Transcendence between channels (Many watts split up over channels effortlessly)
  • A clean, new look
  • Something futuristic (new digital amp)
  • Uniqueness
  • Something that holds its own..sounds different from the pack
  • A huge amount (or number) of power.
  • Something that sounds like it elegantly and effortlessly provides its power

I came up with the...


Axiom Myriad


The definition of Myriad is something of "vast diversity or number." It also has a archaic connection to the number 10,000. While 1kw isn't quite 10 kw, it certainly is in the neighborhood.

When I think of Myriad, the first thing I think of is that it's a unique word that isn't used *much*. Also along with it, it portrays something that holds its own - I could imagine a famous warship being called the Myriad. It's elegant but isn't too over the top. It also sounds a little mysterious, as if it is magic in how it performs its amplification duties.

To some it up, the Axiom Myriad elegantly provides a vast amount of 1400 watts over 8 channels.

I figured that since some people wrote paragraphs of name suggestions, I would write paragraphs about my one name suggestion. :-)

Oh yea, all proceeds from the winnings go towards the "Get Dan an EP500 in his Dorm Room" Fund.

tmoyak,

I wondered how long it would take before thoughts surfaced of how to take the power beyond the 1.4 kilo-watts that one of these amps can output. I know I have been considering this as well.

The best way to utilize the power of more than one of these amplifiers is to divide up the channels between them (i.e. one for the 4 surrounds and one for the 3 front channels). Since each amp module can pass the entire power output of the power supply there is no particular need to parallel or bridge them. You would want a separate 15 amp breaker for each amp though.

I have been thinking of trying 4 of them on my system (2 M80s, 2 VP150s, 4 QS8s, and 3 EP600s); though at this juncture I am still enjoying the boost in power I got from removing all my mono blocks and putting in one of these new amps.

But if you wanted to max a system like mine with power the equation would go as follows: your maximum possible power consumed at each speaker (determined by the impedance of your speakers), times the number of channels you have, divided by 1,400. For myself that works out pretty much to be: 700 watts x 8 = 5,600 watts / 1,400 = 4 amps. This of course would mean a stereo version of the amp would make more sense and we will be sure to have one available.

Doing all this would only matter of course if there was maximum demand from multiple channels all at once since the limiting factor with one amp is not the power available to each channel but rather the overall power available to all channels all at once.




Ian, three EP600's? That's a lot of woofage. What size room are they located in? If you try to manage too much into too little, is there a disadvantage other than spending a lot of money that could be spent on amplifiers?

Jakewash, I just did a search and realized I reused a name you offered in the previous contest--Muskoka. My apologies.

Well, it must mean it's a good name. . .
