I have finally managed to save up enough for my new LFR1100s. I had taken my M80s in some time ago and spoke to Ian about trading up. He had made me a deal I coudnt refuse but I wasn't able to make it happen until now.So psyched!! Last couple of times I was there my speakers were still in the middle of the office. I am sure he will be glad to finally get them out of there and get them ready for resale.

Just of of curiosity. what sort of DSP did you get with that. Are your's the ones with only RCA cross connects or ones with XLR as well? What sort of external amp are you going to use with the speakers?

Ive had LFR1100's for a few years now and just love them. To start with I had quite a bit of trouble with getting my receiver to play nice with the DSP and then ran into issues when I replaced the receiver with a used pre-amp. But my current combination works flawless.

Just picked up the 1100s today. As far as I know I am just getting the basic DSP. As there is only one unit available presently and I wanted to get the speakers yesterday, smile I honestly didn't even ask which version it was. Patience has never been my strong point. Unfortunately I wont get the DSP till tomorrow. I really cant complain since I called this morning hoping to pick up this afternoon. Although they were able to supply the speakers on short notice the DSP wasnt ready as it needed to be coded and Andrew was off today. He normally does this. Right now I am basically using them as M100s. Still sound great but I am sure they will be much better when I get the DSP. I have two seperate amps I plan to power them with. A Crown and a Beringher which supply about 450 and 400 WPC @ 4 ohms respectfully. Should be more than enough power. I am using a Yamaha RX-A3050 as preamp and to power rear surrounds. Everything else is powered externally. I will report back once setup is complete.

Finally have my 1100s setup. I seem to be having an issue between the Yamaha AVR and the DSP. It is working however it randomly cuts out for about a second at a time. MatManBobbleHead had some problems initially between his AVR and DSP also. Anyone else experience this?

Update....after some experimentation I found that sources other than my usual PC with JRiver didn't cause the AVR to cut out.I realized I had used the DSP feature in JRiver to tweak my sound and it was apparently conflicting with the Axiom DSP. Disabled all JRiver DSP functions and all seems to be fine now.Go figure!

Loving the new LFRs. They are all they said they would be. I am not able to give them the recommended clearances the way my setup up is presently but they still sound soooo much nicer than what I was using. Gonna have to completely rearrange the room and gear but thats for another day. For now I am just gonna enjoy

Congrats on the new speakers.

I just ordered a second set of M5HP's to replace my M60s but had that nagging "maybe this is where I should get LFRs" thought as I was doing it. One of my concerns has been clearances as well... it's been tough getting even the M60's far enough from the front wall.

What kind of spacing from side & front walls do you have ?

Hi bridgman Congrats to you as well. At the moment I have the left speaker with about 10" behind and about 24" to the side. The right has the recommended 24" around but its placement is partially blocking the route to the adjoining rooms.....a bit cumbersome. I haven't had a chance to play with the DSP settings yet but question if they will be of much use considering it is just the one speaker that is too close. I intend to completely re-orient the room which will allow for much better placement of the speakers but the is going to be a monumental undertaking with the amount of cabling involved ( I have 4 external amps etc.). Another day smile But even as is they still sound amazing. I was thinking about using the M5s for surrounds but they might be a bit of overkill. Probably will have to wait on that as I plan to get a multi channel amp first and my budget is temporarily blown with the LFRs.
