Wonderful! Excellent news for those people considering the (often controversial) pairing of Emotiva and M80's.

My MPS-1 worked as well for many days until all of a sudden, lights out, during certain movie explosions and cranking the Denon to 0 (reference) or beyond. It is a little comfort though.

Sirquak,
I notice in all of your posts you seem to be very anti-emotiva. ON AVS forums I have seen mixed results when pairing the XPA line of amps with M80v2's. Some people have positive results, and some like yourself have had negative results. Maybe this issue was resolved in the newer XPA models?

In any event, if this amp EVER shuts down you guys will be the first to know.

Dom

Not really anti-emotive, just be cautious-emotiva. Lonnie and I worked on this for 3 months before he put his hands in the air and gave me a full refund . I told him that day I would most likely be a customer some day again. One look at their amps, the quality seems top notch. I think the MPS and RPS just had issues with the special limiter circuit. Not sure aboutthe XPA series.

In reality, it seems crazy to me that many receivers and amps have issues with the m80's, especially seperates.

Most separates don't. What other amps have shut down with the M80s?

Not that Randy needs anyone to stick up for him, but I think he's been pretty fair considering the long, drawn-out issues he had with his Emotiva amp. He just posted the other day that he might give future Emotiva products a try down the road.

Lets face facts though: Some people report problems with Emotva amps and M80s. It would be foolish for him not to warn people about his experience with the combination. I don't remember him trashing the company, and he's not an Axiom fanboy either.

He just shares his experience to maybe help someone else from having the same frustrating issues.

Well....... \:\) thanks, Mark he he

Rick, I know that Tharkun shutdown Outlaw's and Parasounds before he went to Halos.. We all know that some receiver brands have issues, at least in the past..

I guess some speakers are meant to be driven by amps with big guts. \:\)

lol.. i figured the emotiva had BIG GUTS!!!
Well, all I can say is I hope you are wrong guys. Like I said, I will definitely keep all of you posted and I am definitely not the person to skimp out on anything so Emotiva would be notified and I would also warn the forums as well.
