Jason,

Have you ever used an external amp with your M80s? \:\) If not, then I guess ignorance is bliss eh? :P
You go thtat right, after the subs I have to stop for awhile or I won't have a house to share with my wife, although I would hope I could drop by to visit the kids.

And where are your M80s and Emotiva's? Sadly I know you will have the seperates long before me, at least I beat you to the M80s.

I can relate to this thread.I purchased a pair of m60s in Nov,which I enjoy very much,but when I bought them I also bought a Yamaha RX-797 made just for stereo listening,but when I listen to my M60s I have to turn the treble all the way up to hear any crisp highs.when the Yamaha is in the neutral postion it really muffles the m60s.I am just curious is it a common problem with Yamaha products?

Chris, what you report will undoubtedly startle some readers. Both the Axiom speakers and the Yamaha receivers are allegedly "bright" and overemphasize the highs(both claims are nonsense), so in combination the highs would really be overbearing. It's difficult from your description to analyze what the problem in the setup would be, but neither the Axioms nor the Yamaha are in any way deficient in highs if they're operating as designed. Are you certain that the connecting links on the M60 terminals are tight so that the tweeters are actually operating? In the past this was the cause a couple times of "muffled" M60s.

I have never experienced that issue with my Yammie and I have run 2 different sets of M60's, M3's and 2 VP150's in stereo mode.

Kinda OT, but would an Emotiva LPA-1 be sufficient to run M80s?

I too am currently running M80s with a Yamaha receiver, but am looking to upgrade to a new receiver (with preamp outputs) soon.

My front runners are the Onkyo 705 and the Yamaha V663. I plan on purchasing a separate amp to run the speakers and the LPA-1 looks to be the best amp in my price range.

A number of people are running Emotiva's products with Axiom and they appear to be a good match. The 663 looks to be a great deal.

I had a similar experience with a Yamaha AVR. I forget the model number, but it cost $299 in 2004. For $50 more I got an HK AVR 245 and the sound improvement was easily noticeable. In addition, the HK doesn't clip when I run additional stereo speakers in other zones through a speaker selector. The Yamaha couldn't handle that.

Interestingly, I gave the Yamaha to a friend who replaced a Sony receiver in an all Sony system ($1000 total price for all components and speakers purchased about 1990) and it made the Sony speakers sound dramatically better. The difference was much greater than the difference we had noticed between the HK and Yamaha. It sounded so good in fact that my friend got over his envy of my system and quit shopping for a home theater system.

My RPA-1 shut down for the second time running my M80s this weekend at a party, mind you I did have it fairly loud but I still don't think it should have shut down. The volume on my Denon was around -5.
