I have an Anthem PVA 5, 5 channel amp. The amp is modular and can be had in PVA 2 channel, 5 channel or 7 channel configuation. Same case, what differs is the number of amps inside.

I doubt pmb has ever listened to Glenn Beck. I think the Beck is brilliant. pmb, though quick to put down those whose opinions differ, not so much.

He's brilliant in that he knows how to make a lot of money with his mouth in today's political climate. I prefer Chris Hedges for content, though.

I know I'm the only one interested in the amp discussion right now, but I'll keep talking to myself. Ha ha. I'm thinking that if there was an A1400-4 at the current price of the A1400-2, I'd even be tempted to go for that. Ideally, the A1400-8 would be about $3000 and the A1400-4 would be about $2000. A1400-2 at $1500? I know, I know, the prices they have are prices they arrived at knowing a lot more than I do. I'm simply saying what I'd like to see personally. But yeah, an A1400-4 would be the perfect companion for an A1400-8 for anyone doing 11 channel setups. There'd still be that extra amp channel for people doing dual centers. So yeah, the A1400-4 would do the mains and center(s) and the A1400-8 would take care of the surrounds, rear surrounds, heights, and wides. There, that's my case for an A1400-4.

I agree Charles, I have always said the A1400-2 should be ~$1500. I know Ian has mentioned that the A1400 could be specially ordered with any number of channels as long as it was a multiple of 2 channels up to 8, no more room in the case for more.

Well, that's cool about being able to get a custom 4-channel amp, but I know the price wouldn't be where I'd want it. I'll still have to look into it when I actually get to the point of needing more amplification.

This isn't an idea for a new product, but I simply wanted to say I'd like to see more professional reviews of Axiom products. It's obviously not for my own sake, since I'm very freely giving them my money. I simply feel they could improve their image and presence by getting their products into more reviewers' hands.

For me, their most compelling recent products have been their A1400 amps and their EP800 subwoofer. The A1400s have had very few reviews, and the EP800 has only had that one review in Israel that I know of. I can understand not sending out review samples of the EP800 with the initial issues, but with the latest version of the amp, it would be nice to see it getting some love around the internet. When you search for either product online, you find forum threads with people asking where to find reviews, and then discussion sort of dies off.

Maybe Axiom is selling what they feel is enough and aren't feeling pressure to try for more exposure. I must admit that I'm hoping for greater volumes to reduce the prices of their amps, though.

So yeah, more reviews. When reviews are scarce, it seems like the company might fear potential criticisms. I don't think Axiom has much to fear in this regard, and any shortcomings that reviews may illuminate can only be good for Axiom in the long run, right?

You will probably see Audioholics review the EP800 sometime in the future. They have done extensive reviews on pretty much every single Axiom product up to this point with measurements!

Loc: It's all about the location.
The more I look at the Outlaw 2200, the more I think Axiom should have a look at building a similar product. Now with the new centre coming out, there's going to be more people looking for some extra juice across the front three channels, whether they go with 3 separates, or maybe a 2 channel for the L/R and a single for the centre.

Anyone know of some cost effective 3 channel amps? I know there's the XPA-3, any others?

CV, I'm sure that Axiom would love to have more exposure and more reviews. It is one of the things that drives their business.

Unfortunately, getting face time with the folks that make decisions on what is reviewed and then convincing them that you have something new, shiny and fashionable/trendy can be very difficult.

Marketing departments can expend a lot of time and energy on such things, sometimes with disappointing results.

On Audioholics and sub-woofer reviews, I've been quite disappointed with their sub reviews as of late. With the low cost and ease of use of measurement tools like REW, they could do a much better job of quantifying and verifying the claims of various manufacturers.
