Really looking forward to this if it is being made.

My own personal wants are as follows:

1) HDMI 1.3 (3in1 out or 2 out)

2) HDMI Connection between Axiom Pre-Pro and Axiom Amp (I know this is impossible since the amp has already been made, but really, why are we still using so many analogue pre-outs to connect to amps. In the digital age, its just silly and using HDMI or other single cable high bandwidth would cut down on clutter. You can't stop me from dreaming!)

3) Stereo Subwoofer option

4) Audessey EQ setup or something similar so that the average person can just plug in the listening mic and get her running.

5) Tiny package for WAF and Space conscerns on racks.

6) Flux capacitor

7) Decoding of all the audio codecs and new lossless formats so that we can have the DVD players just bitstreme the info to the reciever for 100% uncompressed lossless audio.

I agree with CV on a lot of his points, video processing I can do without since DVD players upconvert anyhow. A nice GUI which can be displayed over HDMI would be nice (like my current Onkyo 705).

Radio tuners I can do without. Product would have to be durable and have a solid build quality to it obviously.

I would pay a certain premium to have these made or at least assembled in Canada.

HDMI is a pretty bad fit for connecting a preamp and an amp. A more generic, less encumbered format would be a far better choice--firewire or USB, perhaps. You don't need a video channel for such a connection. Also, I'm not certain how the digital amp in the A1400 works--does it have a A/D converter on the input side and a D/A converter on the output side? Or are we talking about completely different tech here?

I'm going to assume Axiom has abandoned their plans for a processor to go with their A1400, but I was wondering what everyone's current ideal would be, since the landscape has changed a bit.

Denon 3808 or similar avr(Onkyo 875/905) which are cheaply priced right now and have all the bells and whistles. I think the Outlaw 997 is next on my list then the price seems to climb up a thousand or more to get something with the same features that they offer.

I'm still crossing my fingers that the Outlaw Model 997 knocks it out of the park, too. I'd wonder what I'm missing with regard to Audyssey Dynamic EQ, though. It would be nice if there were receivers/processors out there that were a little more open, and you could purchase different audio software packages for them (Audyssey, Trinnov, whatever). I imagine the processing horsepower would have to increase a bit, and a standardized A/V OS might help.

Since the 997 is based on the S/N 972 which has Trinnov, I have always guessed the 997 would have Trinnov as well.

Yes, Trinnov, which is why we'd be missing out on Audyssey's recent innovations. That's why I think it would be cool to be able to download different room correction software/features à la carte.

\:D I don't know if that's user-friendly enough.
