I used double-sided tape to put a quarter over the spectacularly bright blue circle of lights on the DTV receiver in our bedroom. It's ghetto fabulous.

Am I helping?

LOL Tom, yes you are helping. Now I know what to do if I want to "pimp my room" \:\) .

Cam in my work plane a couple of the digital displays are like that at night time, even with the dimmest setting they are still bright ... I took some static cling window tinting and cut it to fit the face of the display, works great and it can used over and over again.

I don't know if that would work with your application or not but it's a thought, also that tint comes in various colors and shades so it can be matched fairly easily.

That's awesome, Rick! I know exactly what you are talking about, as I was going to get some professionally installed on my windows. I really think that's my best option; I'll pick some up at the local hardware store.

Thanks again, man.

HI guys...I'm back and have some update. Well, EMO told me just return XPA 2 for full refund because I am not happy and try their only top notch line of amp monoblock (XPA 1)that can take a difficult load, M80. XPA 1 is a 2 ohm stablize amp. But, man it's like $1k a piece kinda over my budget at this time. I might give them a try. Also, I wanted to add to my external amp experience that I did tried out Outlaw monoblock M2200 with M80. From my OWN opinion and HT set up, Outlaw sounds alright but EMO XPA 2 sound more dynamic and detailed base on my HT set up and my ears. But, man there is something I like about the EMO amp sound that matches very dynamic sound which I really like coming out from my M80. Tell me this... I don't really do not understand much.It just that when I demo and crank up the volume in the 3-6 mins., distortion and clipping problem happen during music play in Direct and PureDirect mode from Denon DSP. 2 Stereo, 7 ch stereo, and Dolby Digital OK. Could it be the pairing problem my DENON and EMO amp. I will post my HT AXIOM speakers PICs set up soon. Thanks again for all the adviced and opinion from the AXIOM forum.

How do you have the M80s crossed over in the Denons set up? Do you have them set to small?

Hi WID...nice to hear from you again. Much appreciated to come on line today. Here, my Denon configuration set up.
All my speakers crossed over to SMALL. F/R at 40 hz and sub is LFE with 80Hz crossover.

I would try crossing the M80's over at 60Hz or 80Hz instead.
