Looking for thoughts on your ADA1000...

Greetings, Programs.

Now that I'm in the market for a new AVR this Christmas, I've been contemplating adding an amp into my home theatre. I've been looking at a 7 channel ADA1000 but want some advice from you owners out there.

For my AVR choices, I've been looking at either a Marantz SR8013 or the SR7013--but with today's announcement of the new IMAX audio/video home format, the SR7013 looks to be in the lead.

I only have a single outlet to plug my HT gear into which is basically the AVR, JVC projector, Oppo Blu-ray disk player and PS4, so would adding in an amp possibly trip the breaker?

How much heat does your ADA1000 put out at a reasonable listening level?

Does the ADA1000 alter the sound of your AVR? If I really like the Marantz sound--usually described as more musical than a Denon--will this amp alter that sound much?

Any comments are welcome.

There is almost no heat from mine. It has a dedicated shelf mind you.
My AVR is warmer and the amp is handling the L/C/R.
My PVR and PS4 are considerably warmer. Also both on dedicated shelves so a fair comparison IMO.

Both of my ADA1000 stay at room temperature. even when cranked up to -15db and the room is pretty much shaking.

As far as power goes. I have 3 separate circuits for my AV equipment. I have always given each of my ADA's their own power line.

Trying to decide between the ADA1000 3-channel and Outlaw Model 5000. I only really need L/C/R, with the Denon 4400h handling the other 8 surround/Atmos channels. Thoughts?

I don't own either. It's impossible to compare sound quality and dynamic capability "on paper" for various reasons. You may want to factor into your decision the trade-in and loyalty discount that Axiom offers.

The ADA1000 has been seriously designed to give far more power than what is on paper.

Oh yeah? Do tell because I am on the fence about buying one. How's the noise floor?

Good points. Also, any warranty claim on an Outlaw amp would be a pain (ship a giant 50+ lb box to the U.S.).

Also my experience with Axiom says they'll do what it takes to right any wrong.

I agree with Matt.
Basically all of Axioms on paper specs. are a general base level. For us. While the products are overbuilt to go much further than their specs.
In my experience with my ADA1250 3 channel there's no shortage of power. In the year I've owned mine, I've had no distortions at all, at any level of SPL.
