Who else has both the LFRs and an ADA? I have the 1500 and its LED is not as bright as the one on the DSP for the LFRs, and a bit more blue-green compared to the very bright blue on the DSP. Did Axiom use different parts?

Overall I guess I like the ADA light better.

Charles can answer that one I guess. I am going to get an amp eventually too.

I think there may have been a difference in the light, but I shipped my DSP back to the factory, so I can't make a comparison until I get it back.

To brsaw: Ha ha! Not really what I meant. In fact, did you see my other posting on the mathematical equation that Andrew has come up with to calculate the sonic effects of using Axiom gear? The details are much too technical for me to get into, but I like to summarize it as:

LFR1100 + ADA1500 = DIVORCE

When we build I will be sure to add an extra 6' at the front of the room. I'm pretty sure they're gonna need the space.
LFR's will be the first purchase after the walls go up.
My wife likes louder music than me, so I think once she heard them play they'd be part of the divorce...
I kid of course, we've got a good thing going.

I have mine in a fairly small room for now and they still seem to work well. I have'nt even tried the boundary compensation switch yet. However I do plan to move them to a bigger space eventually.

how big is "fairly small"?
She'd kill me.
Although, when I asked her opinion the 1000th time she did say she didn't care...

Then I'd say "Its time".

About the size of a bedroom... in fact it is a bedroom. Maybe 12 x 12? Will get a measuring tape if its that important to you.

All right, so I got my DSP back, and unfortunately, the front LED is not coming on. Otherwise, it seems to function just fine.

No LED shining at you from across the room, saying "Hey! Look at me!" ? I'd call that a feature. smile

I may have to ask them to "fix" mine the same way.

Some months ago I asked if anyone had an idea where I could find some semi-translucent, black sticker material.

Seems, I'm not the only one who thought this was a good idea.
