Thanks Ian,
One more question. The specs show the units are 19 inches wide. Most audeo equipment is 17 inches. Is the 19 wide correct?

I use Axiom bulk speaker wire and love it. With one of these amps, would I need to upgrade to one of those fancy uber-expensive, vacuum sealed, phaser-proof cables?

I am glad you asked this. The 19" is an error. Steve is going to fix that now. The front panel is 17.75" wide and the chassis is 17.5" wide so it will fit in a standard rack.

Bayne,

The 12 gauge Axiom bulk cable will be perfect for the job.

Thanks, Ian. I thought so, ts was just something one of the 'experts' at BB said right before I chuckled. I was never going to be talked into those high-priced cables, but thought I should check.

My wife and I are going to Antartica in January, so I've got to wait a bit until I can order a 1000 series amp. Sigh.

I just got an email back from Brent (CS) and he said the 19 inch width was correct. If it is 19, I can't get it in my cabinet. It is is the 17+, it will work. Please verify one more time for me.

Also, is Today the last day of the pre-order pricing? Or is it tomorrow?

Sorry for being such a pain. Thanks

JAR5197,

The amps are 17.75" wide for the face panel and 17.5" wide for the chassis. I have let Brent know we changed the spec on the site as well. The last day for the first level of the pre-order pricing is tomorrow. No problem with all the questions, I am sure they are a big help to everyone reading this.

Thanks Ian,
Now I just have to decide between the 1250 or the 1500.
I have a pair of Paradigm Studio 100v4 and the big 690 center. The room is large; 15 x 25 x 9. But it is also open into a kitchen dinette area. What are your thoughts here?

JAR5197,

Given your system and larger space it would certainly not be overkill to go with the 1500 series. If you like to crank it up once and awhile I would recommend the 1500.

Me? Crank it up?
Sounds like a 1500 for pre-order crazy
