My 2 cents regarding Axioms and Emotiva gear. I have M60s, VP150 & QS8s hooked up to an XPA-5 and LMC-1. I did have an LPA-1 amp but sold it when I bought the 5. I think it is a fantastic fit. I've had many receivers but have always preferred separates. Went with Emotiva because of the reviews here and elsewhere and because of the price point and value. People have had some issues but that happens with any product. I have not had any issues with either the LPA or the XPA. It's powerful, sounds great, has great separation (processor or amp?? or both??), great bass, mids and highs all around. My ears give before the amp or speakers give out. Many great products out there and it is all about personal preferences, depending on what those preferences are. Bottom line, I recommend mating Axioms with Emotiva (AxEmo-new animal) and I am quite happy with my setup. Waiting on the XPA-2 or the RPA-2 to arrive so I can get some M80s..

Thank you for your input on that, cgolf. I am also looking into getting the xpa-5 because I listen to movies at somewhat high volumes, and I like my HK alot, but it seems to strain just a little bit on explosive passages. With all of the good things I've heard about emotiva's xpa-5, I'm thinking about purchasing it!

I think you'll be very happy with their gear especially with the same type 30 day in house trial as Axiom has. I know some people have had shut down issues using Emo amps with the 80s but their equipment is designed to run 4 ohm speaker systems so I don't know what the problems were. You certainly get a great bang for the buck with both companies!!

I love my Emo gear and have the same to say as has already been said about it's sound. Don't have axioms yet. Quarter ends in 10 days! Should be able to fix that.
