Ha! The FedEx box magically appeared when I stopped at the house on my way to an off-site meeting. When I got back, I spent the rest of my time swapping out the receptacles on my 20 amp circuits with receptacles that can accept the flat blade 5-20 plug required for the XPR-1's. Had to do some drilling to get the XLR's into the equipment room, but the hard part's over!

Fantastic. Can't wait to hear some of your thoughts when you get some listening time in. You have quite the system Matt, You should be very proud.

Thanks man--I'm definitely proud of this journey that's been possibe only through the advice and discussion of my fellow AVS'ers! I'm putting the system through it's paces-my goodnes, these XPR-1's are limitless in their power! My ears gave up earlier, and there was barely a blip on the amps' meter.

Quick question for all: Does anyone know how to get rid of a ground loop hum? It looks something, somewhere has introduced a GLH and cheater plugs are not an option. I'm trying to avoid re-qiring my 20 amp outlets, as the electricians did not leave much wire slack when they originally ran the circuits and it's literally 2 hours of trial and error to get the wires under the screws just right. Don't get me wrong--I could easily live with this as it's fairly low--but I'd rather not.

Or....could it just be regular amp hum--1700 wpc is bound to cause some humming, as I had low humming with my old Klipsch which were fed 200wpc.....

Exploring my music collection and having a blast doing it!!!

I don't think I"ll ever leave Emotiva....their amps sound so.....amazing.

Kind of wimpy in size, don't you think? eek.gif

So how does it SOUND??

VERY high end looking. I'm a huge Emotiva fan. I really don't know how they deliver what they do at those price points!!

Man, it sounds amazing. Everything comes together to make one sphere of sound around me. They are handling anything I throw at them with ease...these will probably be the last amps I'll ever need to own. I don't know how they do it either.....They must have a Chief Magic Officer (CMO) on their executive team...

Seriously, for music, even very loud rock music, that amp/speaker combination will probably never run out of gas. Movies, on the other hand, (as you know) can put serious demands on the low end and it is REAL easy to run out of amp on a full range speaker. Overdrive an amp hard enough and you can really mess with the drivers (as in freeze voice coils).

But since you are talking about eventually buying Seaton F4's (or whatever they are called), that should never be an issue.

Awesome looking system.

Congrats!!

Is there a cable box in the mix? That can tend to introduce the dreaded 60Hz hum. I was able to minimize my hum by lifting a ground here and there. Interestingly, once I reconfigured to install My Mac C2300, the hum disappeared completely (at least, it's not been heard). Something in the reconfiguration, I don't know what.

They look pretty bad ass Matt. What about heat. Do they get warm? Do you feel any difference in the room temp wise? Just asking. I l know my Brytson amps get pretty warm and in the summer time, if I don't have both room fans going, it can be a bit uncomfortable, But your room is bigger and you are probably not right on top of them so I am sure that helps. I am glad they are bringing your system up a few levels. Looking forward to more thoughts and another video smile.gif.

I bid thee thanks, ye mighty master of Blues! You'll love the XPA-5, and having used one with the Integra 80.3, I can promise you that the sound will leave you 100% satisfied. On another note, I'm so jealous of your traveling to Brazil. All my travel consists of one DC building to another :-(

Thanks Mech! My neighbors and I have an understanding. They occasionally throw events and have very loud music playing; I occasionally play movies at reference (I normally listen at around -7 for movies, or between -10 and -15 for music) and we don't complain to eachother smile.gif

Thank you sir! I only go to the movies for the major blockbusters (Man of Steel, anyone?) but everything else shall be in the theater!!! I plan to spend the next few weeks re-discovering all my material.

Thanks man--I do agree. Need has nothing to do with it at all. I"m taking it very easy on movies until I get subs in. They perform very well with movies, but the last thing in the world I want to do is spend $500 to ship 300 pounds of speaker back to Legacy for repair. *cringe*

There is a sattellite box in the equipment room? that could be the culprit, eh? Hmmm--I'll need to unplug that to see if the hum goes away. It's definitely equipment based, becasue the hum is coming from the center speaker as well, whose monoblock is currently plugged into a different circuit than the XPR-1's are. I'm going to try removing it from the equation--thanks for the heads up!

Thanks Mike--they are very cool to the touch. The first 10 watts are class A, but I don't feel any difference in temperature. It switches to class B at 11 watts, and class H after 1000 watts! (I think I got that right.) Another video is definitely on the way!

Nice. I am not too familiar with class H. I know class A, AB, D, and so on but not H. I think I have heard it mentioned once but that's it. It's great that they don't get warm and that they are efficient amps. Now just sit back and enjoy.

It ain't easy being green.

Soon, we'll have an Emotiva amp that does the whole alphabet. Every time the amp switches to a different class it will hum the alphabet song.. A, B, C, D, E, F,G... back down to A cause only 10 watts is being used..

Brolic, to make your theater space seem more open, you should get rid of the credenza and get a nice center channel stand.

Yeah, I had to read up on Class H as well. It's an extremely efficient technology for very high-watt applications.

LOL! Start up sequence could be the alphabet song, with the led blinking a different color for each letter smile.gif

I actually thought about this. I'd need to find a center channel stand capable of holding the Marquis HD its current height, which is perfect as the tweeter lines up with my eyes when reclined in the theater seat. I actually spend some searching, but couldn't find any that were high enough--and custom stands cost an arm and a leg (and in the case of Sound Anchor, it will cost my firstborn child as well.)

Here's a solution for a stand at the right height without costing much: Cinder blocks covered in black velvet.

That is a lovely sight

Spinning the rear tire at 150mph while at 3/4 lean angle will put wrinkles in your seat
