Looks like there is another user on AV123 with Maggies 4ohm speakers that is having the same issue with his mps1 watching movies. So it is not just me and my 80's.

My apologies to Dan, Lonnie, Emotiva and all regarding the shut down of my particular MPS-1. After some "extensive" switching around of equipment this afternoon, I believe I have discovered the culprit (in my situation) that is causing the shut down. As I mentioned earlier, I'm using all Maggies in a 7.3 HT. Looking at the Yammy OSD to balance all the outputs rather than the RS meter, for the first time I noticed I had to use unusually more gain to the center channel speaker amp powering the Maggie CC3 than to any of the other speakers. You guessed it. The Maggie CC3 (though less than a year old)is defective and pushed the gain into overload at the amp. Duh! Sorry guys. Funny how we are ready to blame electronics rather than speakers for problems. Hope this has been of some help and, again, my apologies. I'm so glad I discovered this because I truly love the sound and convenience of the MPS-1 and would not want to part with it.

Doug have you heard it Emo has received their Ref 1's in to test. Ted (TCS) is another person having similar issues with his 4ohm bookshelfs?

No. I have thought about asking Dan if he would like to use my M80s for a test, but I'll wait for the Ref-1s testing.

I mentioned that to Lonnie once, but he said you most likely would not want to do that, they would tear the 80's apart to look at the guts. He asked me if I could get schematics of the 80's crossover design, so they could study what the amp is seeing, however, this was not available from Axiom, which I understand.

Just to let you all know so you can stop worrying, I have returned my Emotiva equipment. I want to thank Emotiva for their technical support and customer service. I'm sure there will come a day where I am once again an Emotiva owner. Their future products, from what I've been told look promising.

Well Randy, I think most will agree that it was a good move on your part for now. I don't think what you were asking of your amps was unreasonable, especially when there are those of us with no issues like that. I don't often go to crazy levels, but when you get the urge to, your system should perform!

Good luck in your search for your next amp, I'm sure you'll nail it!

Yeah, I think if you're any type of "grrl," you're automatically beyond handling range.
