Not that I'm anywhere near able to plunk down almost $4K for an amp anytime soon, but I'm curious if people who own them will be demoing them? I don't see anyone on the demo list as yet. How are they selling, I wonder? And will we be seeing big name reviews in major pubs? I hope so!

Axiom apparently cannot make more than 2 amps per day as they are hand made...and I guess they are flat out busy making them every day, they have enough orders to keep making them full out.

When I auditioned an epic 80/600 5.1 set up the person who gave me the audition had the axiom amp.

It sounded great. I never did any a/b comparisons so I can not comment much... But he was able to turn his m80's WAY LOUDER than I can with my 3808 without any hint of distortion.

I waited about 3-4 months for mine. It is a spectacular amp that is well worth the wait and the asking price. I too realized immediately that the M80s have much more capability in them than my Yamaha integrated amp (110W/ch) was able to bring out. Your point about who would be auditioning this amp is an interesting one. I know of only five other forum members who bought this amp. Majority of the buyers are likely not members of this forum. I live in CT and can audition on Feb 30th if anyone would like to come over. If that date will not work for you, just send a pm and we'll arrange something. \:\)

Feb 30, huh? The amp is that amazing that the world did an extra spin? Good to know. ;\)

It's a double leap year, happens once every other decade and a three quarters. ;\)


Haylo75 in Kansas city is the forum member who auditioned his axioms and A-1400 to me.

I am sure he would do the same for others if he has time.

I'm not ready to go onto the audition list yet, but I would like to at some point.

The A1400-8 was definitely a jump up from my Onkyo receiver, but it was a lower-end model, and I don't have a feel for amplifiers in between that receiver and the A1400-8.

terzaghi - thanks for the props! It's been awhile since I've been online here... work and other things are keeping me too busy.

I am available anytime for an A1400-8 audition and live in the Kansas City area. I know that's too far for some, but I just thought I'd throw it out there.

I had one channel on my last A1400-8 keep turning on and off due to suspected thermal issues. As always, Axiom with their great customer service sent me a replacement amp, allowing me to keep my existing amp running on the remaining channels while I waited for receipt of the replacement. Things have been going well with the latest amp, which I've had in place for about a week now.

haylo,
glad to see you are still around!

Did you get some type of check from axiom since I mentioned you when I made my purchase?
