Question - for M22 bookshelves, QS8 surrounds, and V150 center, do I need anything more than a 2 channel for L/R? Have a Yamaha RX 659 which is highly rated for power (see below).

At full continuous unclipped power (132wpc x 1; 8 ohms, 120wpc x 2; 8 ohms; full bandwidth with less than 0.1% THD+N), the RX-V659 still maintained excellent bandwidth linearity with a -3dB point of 65kHz despite we were driving the receiver way beyond its rated 100wpc power specification. Into 4 ohms, the RX-V659 was able to deliver continuous power levels at a whopping 200wpc x 1 and 170wpc x 2 with less than 0.1% THD + N

a +5 wpc benefit from upgrading to an ADA1000 2 channel?

Now, if I were to upgrade to a VP180, would I be better off with an ADA 3 channel amp, or spring an extra few hundred for the HP 180? Interested to hear any thoughts/suggestions. Thanks

Yup, awesome deals. Just ordered an EP-800. Also just received a good deal (Amazon.com) on a Denon AVR-X6200W. Arrived today and will try it out. If not enough will go ahead and also order the ADA amp.

Anybody else getting in on the "Big Bargains" deals?

Axiom should have these more often. Well, maybe not or I'd go broke.

Just decided to grab a 3 channel ADA1250 can't wait.
Expect to enjoy for a long time.

Axiom's awesome products at such a steal.

Though the wife's probably gonna kill me when the next Axiom box shows.

Hi all, I was also tempted by the big sale. Not sure if ADA would be overkill for me as I use the older in/on wall M22's and my HT is small. Was also thinking of that EP800 to replace my EP500. Apparently I dream of overkill! But then the reality of house and wife I mean house :-) renovations rained on my parade!
Also just read this article this morning about switching in class D amps - does anyone know what switching the ADA's use? I'm interested in learning more about this.

Cheers all.

Well since today is the last day of the "Big Bargains" sale I went ahead and ordered an ADA1250-3 amp. Was surprised to find out the amp only has a two-year warranty. Also ordered an EP800 sub nearly two weeks ago (hopefully arrives this coming week). Turns out the sub only has a two-year warranty also yet speakers have a five-year warranty. Oh well, been an Axiom customer since 2010 and have yet to use any warranty.

As always, thanks to all for your comments and advice. Can't wait for my new toys.

I think the orders you just made would come with the 5 years, as the refurb. is the only section with a 2 year. Being a new product it should have the usual 5 years I think. {hopefully}

I also got in on one of the ADA1250 3 channels, anticipation is building.

Though I didn't get any details about warranty and such yet.

All the products sold in Big Boy Toy promo are new and have a five year warranty. It is only products in the Refurb Store that are two years.

Hi Dan,

The article that you linked is pretty good, but note that Skip uses the word "historically" in the section talking about Class D distortion and feedback. We now have output devices available with extremely low gate resistance and low energy storage, so the days of super-high-feedback being required for Class D have passed. For your reference, all of the ADA amplifiers use a self-oscillating topology and are pure PWM...there is no PCM conversion going on.

Thanks,

Andrew

Andrew - thanks for the response and info on the ADA.

Tico - enjoy your new toys, I am a bit jealous! laugh Please post your thoughts once you've had the chance to let them stretch their legs.
