From their own features section:
Removes the rooms acoustics so they work in all rooms

Did you make sure you hooked up the space vacuum? You know, to eliminate the propagation of sound waves and eliminate acoustics? Might be the issue. laugh

I visited the product page..... Feel bad you dropped the dough. Hope you get a resolution, but I would guess the DSP is borked somehow.

Yes, hanging out in vacuum environments does make for explosive sound, followed by dead silence.

Hi all - It's been a while since my last post anywhere here - The short version of my absence was the purchase of an auto dealership last fall. The dealership was ready to fail, and turning it around has been a 60 hour per week task.

BUT … this week, we had two exceptional nights with the LFR-1100's, VP-180 HP and M-100 system. Bass is anchored by a pair of EP-800's.

We had company and watched the Blu Ray of "Rock of Ages" and "Avengers: Infinity War". The company was astonished at how amazing the sound was. The company was right. I still absolutely LOVE these speakers after 3 years. The oak cabinets still look brand new!

And for those who get the news letter - Ian mentioned the "Stephen Stanley Band" played at the 35th anniversary party.

Our system was the actual system used for the "PA" system at the party, and it ROCKS.

On several recent business trips, I have had the chance to listen to some $200,000 plus systems with Magico, B&W and other ultra high dollar systems, and always am happy to get back to the Axioms.

Hi Craig,

Good to see you back. I recently added LFR1100 to my system which are also complemented with VP180 and EP800. I second without reserve your experience with them.
They are unbelievably good and sound way, way far better than their price suggests.

I'm still enjoying the EP800v4NME and the VP160v4. A few of us watched Den of Thieves on Netflix...RAT! TAT! TAT! BLAM! BLAM! POW! KABOOM! I had a 'nad-tickling good time and the ladies couldn't contain themselves from all their sphincter-twitching. Craig, you gotta trade in those girlie 800v3 for the latest manly-man 800v4NME.

Mojo - We have the V.4's … does the enema package add anything?

Heeheehee...I can see how NME can be interpreted as enema. NME is the 'nad mass edition. The 20 Hz cutoff switch was replaced with a switch that gives 'nad tickler and gut punch modes. Nad tickler is flat. In my room, after careful calibration, the gut punch mode gives me a 7dB boost between 53Hz and 76Hz. Thats a 5-fold boost in that bandwidth. This is very welcome in my room because I end up with pretty much a flat response. I know you know all this Craig but you likely got a bit of stress-induced amnesia from bringing that dealership back from the dead.

Yeah...the platform shoes, bell-bottoms and satin open-neck shirt haven't come off since I got it.
