Hi, I'm new to the Axiom forum but have been receiving the newsletter. I met all of you briefly at Le Salon Son et Image in Montreal this year.
I'm glad to see the amps are available before the fall. I own an Anthem MRX 700rated at 120 watts 2 channels driven and 90 watts 5 channels driven from 20hz to 20khz at 0.1% distortion @ 8 ohms. Also have speakers with built in powered subs.

Always been interested in buying one of your power amps, now is my chance. I was looking at the 1000 series 3 channel amp or the 1250 series 3 channel amp. Is there an upgrade option if I decide to go 5 channels later? Like listening to movies at realistic levels same with music. Is an upgrade really needed. Room is average size.

Was even thinking about changing the power cord on the MRX 700???
Thoughts and ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, enjoyed catching up on some forum topics.

Welcome!

I don't think you're going to find much support around here for esoteric power cords.

That Anthem amp is a fantastic piece. If you're really looking for an upgrade, I'd suggest getting the 3-channel Axiom 1250 or 1500 and keeping the Anthem for the other channels.

Thanks for comment tomtuttle. I feel the same about power cords but thought I'd ask.

Wawa being my favourite place to stop on the drive from my house to Calgary (okay, second favourite after Brent's house, naturally!) and Ron being Ron, I think!

So, back to the new amps. I'm seriously considering the new Axiom amps. And, of course, would want to take advantage of the early order savings. I would be interested in learning the difference between the new Axioms on the others around using the Ice Power modules? How doe they differ? How are they better?
Time is running short on this decision :-)

Hi Amie, You have the first part right as in Wawa. JB in French a wawaron is a male bull frog. I do live in Wawa and am male so wawaron. Next time in town let me know we can go for coffee at the best restaurant in Wawa which happens to be outside of Wawa, the Kinniwabi Pines. Best coffee and meals around.

JAR5197,

The ICE amp module is also a switching amp and will share those high efficiencies for converting wall current to power at the speaker. But when we originally looked into the possibility of using the ICE amp modules they came with their own switching power supply as part of each module. We found this limiting to one of our main design parameters of having a massive analog power supply available to all of the channels. Beyond this show stopper, there were also the limitations of the module itself. Though it would be easy to implement for sure, we really wanted more control over every aspect of the amp design, which designing from the ground up gave us.
