You'll experience more of the excitement of your system without clipping or distortion ever. All you'll hear are notes that go on and on with plenty of headroom.

Why You Need Power

What can you expect to hear when you've got enough power? No distortion, and no clipping. Properly powered systems never sound 'too loud' because they stay clean no matter what volume you choose. When you underpower a system, it quickly goes into distortion mode during challenging passages, and that's what makes you think it is too loud. With today's high-definition audio options in both movies and music, your home theater system needs to be fed continuous power without overheating or clipping, in order to give you the realism you crave.

Getting The Best

Normally you choose an amplifier based on its rated watts-per-channel output, but that's really just part of the story. In order to actually get the full output, you need a power supply that can deliver that power to all the channels at once, with enough efficiency to actually deliver that power where it is needed, quickly. Traditional Class A/B amplifier designs can lose up to half their rated energy in wasted heat. The Axiom 1,000 on the other hand uses a proprietary digital amplifier to control the massive analog Class D power supply, overcoming the shortcomings of a traditional switching supply and drawing 1500 watts out of a typical wall plug. This translates into the following power ratings:

The amplifier features a toroidal transformer and a large storage capacitance, housed in a heavy-duty steel case with an aluminum face channel.

For rooms under 2,500 cubic feet and normal sort of volume levels the 1000 series is perfect.

For rooms over 2,500 cubic feet or if you like to really crank it once and awhile then the 1250 series is the one.

For huge rooms and/or the desire to achieve the nirvana of loud and clean the 1500 series is the answer.

Axiom amplifiers can be connected to either the pre-amp outputs on your receiver (check your receiver has these) or to a stand-alone pre-amp processor.
