looks like the active crossover axiom is becoming a reality.
I was still questioning LFR1100 over the M80... and now Active LFR1100. If money was not a factor I'd be there. Don't forget you'll need to add 10 channels of amplification to boot. One of these days I'll have to visit and do a M100/LFR1100/Active LFR1100 comparison.

Eventually, I assume this will all go into the speaker cabinet ... and you'd just plug your pre-amp into it. Speaking of pre-amps ...

If designing a state of the art pre-pro was not such a hairy task (i.e. coming out with something before the main stream decoder chips/designs are available) ... I'd put a 16 channel surround processor on the axiom wish list ... In the mean time I'll probably be going the AV8805 route unless something better comes out between now and November.

An Axiom 16 channel processor is not enough. You need 10 channels for main LFRs, another 10 channels for the LFR center, 6 for height, 6 for width, 6 for sides, 6 for back, 12 for ceiling and 4 for subs. Let's see...60 channels. And oh yeah...you need 56 channels for amplification.

I can be serious but just not on a regular basis. I can't take life too seriously; I'll never get out alive.

With regard to this entire post, I really do think speakers will go away one day. "Smart" headphones will take over and then as someone on here said, chip implants.

In the meantime though, the world will discover the holographicness of active Axioms and some will spend serious coin making all speakers in their rooms active. Hence the need for mega-channel processors and amplifiers.
