Re: Axiom Epic 80 Speaker Review: Discussion Thread

Thx for the info. Could you explain how I would add the pro to my 709 receiver?

You would need to run RCA connections from the Pre-out directly into the Crown inputs. Then plug the speakers to the speaker terminals on the crown. The Pre-out should be marked on the back of the 709.

Re: Axiom Epic 80 Speaker Review: Discussion Thread

Sorry for the delay, been insanely busy today. The voltage that is being referred to is the voltage the signal coming out of the Onkyo RCA 'pre-out' and the Crown RCA input each require. The Crown requires a stronger signal than the 709 outputs therefore you would want to amplify it using the ART in order to ensure there is no degradation of the signal. Does that make sense?

Yes! Thx again. I am thinking I will get the Emotiva XPA-3. This should work, right? Sorry for all the questions.

Re: Axiom Epic 80 Speaker Review: Discussion Thread

Not a problem, that's what I am here for. I use an Emotiva XPA 5 myself and it works very well for my needs. I have an Onkyo TX-NR 3007 that I use as the processor.

Axiom went high end. Bryston decided to get into the speaker business. Bryston and Axiom built several models with the Model T being the most expensive starting at $6500. When you look at the Model T you can definitely see it's heritage. If you go on the Bryston web site and look at the Model T they acknowledge Axiom. Initial reports say it's M80v3 on steroids.

The Bryston look nice but at that price I can think of some that I would rather have. The LFR1100's that I ended up buying after the review are really nice but man do they love power!

You would think with 95db sensitivity 300 watts would be enough. Maybe the speakers dip below 4 ohms and the amp not liking that. I have the M80v3 driven by 200 watts 4 ohms and I haven't driven the amp into clipping yet.
