Not at all, WOW--talk about loud and clear--xpa-1's are just vicious wicked, clear, tight, soundstage is EVERYWHERE, ran them wih the axiom m-80's for ohhhh.....bout 15 hours for my poker night, sometimes loud and sometimes just a whisper, and sound was justthere and awesome, puts to shame: rotel 1090, krell ksa-250, parasound, mcintosh 501's were outclassed by the authorative xpa-1's. these are a definate keeper, im very impressed, never had this kind of soundstage or just outright SLAM in any of the above amps, well maybe the Classe mono blocks are a bit better, but were talking about a multi thousand dollar difference here,....so i will say the xpa-1's are above and beyond any amp I have used. WOW is all I can say. believe it

Glad the XPA1s are nailing it for you, I suspected as much from the sound of the XPA2, which I thought was great, except for the shutdown issues, which in my case nullified the impact.

Cheers, \:\)

177db isn't possible but I know what you mean. Glad it is working for you. Keep it cranked to '11'

For those interested 177db would require 14,263,715,295W at 3m away into a 95 db speaker with 10db headroom, according to Crown's amp calculator. If I drop the desired level to 167db you only need 1,426,371,529 to cover the 10db dynamic range.

Funny, I plug in 100db and it comes back with 285W and I get ~230W out of the Denon and I have measured ~100db in my room which is as loud as I can get it. I think the calculator is pretty close, considering the RS meter is most likely off a few db etc.

bad news, im forced to sell my beloved m-80's for bills. times are hard on us, and i am forced to sell the axiom speakers and my parasound amp to have cash for upcoming rent & bills,.....sad days!!! Ill pick up a little less expensive pair in the BIC America speakers lots of good reviews, and price is right. sound not as good as the old axiom warhorses, but good enough til im back on my feet and can get a better pair. maybe save for some B&W's or Vienna acoustics Beethoven's.

Okay, this is the second time that I've had a problem with a fuse blowing in my RPA-1, can somebody please give me some insight as to how this is happening.

It's the M80s and you must be running that amp in bridged mode, remove the bridge and sell the M80s, pick up some M60s and all will be well ;\) \:D
