Not yet Randy, they are suppose to come on the first but sometimes they deliver a day earlier than what it says.
They had a "delivery exception" (so I phoned)as to where the shipper didn't write what currency was charged. CAD or USD, Jennifer(from Outlaw) said that was the first time she every got that one.
Fedex can be so dumb sometimes, I tell you!


edit: They arrived at MISSISSAUGA, ON . Yayy, in Canada!

Hey guys,

sorry for jumping on this post late, but I've got a pair of these hooked up to my M80 v2 speakers. I unfortunately don't have anything really to compare because my last amp was an Alesis RA300...yeah, don't laugh at me ok, it was many moons ago.

I'd say that I enjoy the sound coming from them but until I try another amp with my setup, I can't really say much more. What I know for sure is that they sound great compared to the Alesis RA300 and anything I've heard from your standard home theatre in a box setup.

I've got a Blue Planet EM100 energy meter hooked up at the wall with the following attached:

-Emotiva USP-1
-Axiom EP350 v3 subwoofer
-2x OA M2200 monoblock amps
-Sony KDL 46EX500 television
-Desktop Computer (I7 875k, Radeon 6950HD 1Gb, Asus Xonar DS sound card, modem, router)

All these things together use an average of about 150 watts from the wall. Amazing in my opinion. Take away the computer and it's about 70 watts for just the tv and audio equipment.

I also enjoy the fact that they barely give off any heat even at high volumes and stacked on top of each other. Good if you're concerned with that or are putting in a cabinet with poor ventilation (shame on you!).

I should be testing my setup with a Bel Canto S300ID soon. I know it's supposed to be a step up from my current configuration, but I'll let you know.

How on earth do you get a power consumption that low with a Radeon 6950?!

Hey Ken,

you're absolutely correct. I assumed the computer was attached to the power bar that had all my stereo components but that wasn't the case. I remembered that I had to plug the computer into another outlet because I was getting a ground loop humming sound.

I've reattached the computer to the powerbar and now I'm getting 245 watts from the complete system which does make more sense.

I still believe that's still amazing energy efficiency...as long as I don't play Battlefield 3. hehe

Again, thanks for catching that!

Thanks SirQuack,

I was going to get four amps and quad amp the M80s but I thought that would be a little excessive. wink
