What 2-channel setups will Emotiva be bringing to Axpona? I'd like to hear the TA-100, the CD-100, and the Airmotiv T2 as a system.
Last year when I attended Axpona a home theater setup was cranked up so loud it was almost impossible to listen to anything else. I don't have a home theater system; I have a 2-channel system and I'd like to hear a couple combinations of 2-channel setups.

Why does it have to be so loud a person cannot hear himself think let alone have a clear define sound coming from speakers. Loud just makes a hodge/podge of the music format...at least when it's as loud as you describe. The music becomes unenjoyable. No matter if it's rock, jazz blues or classical...but especially rock.

I understand what you are saying. As far as this goes...most rock music has to be played loud to get the effect of it. As an example I saw Black Sabbath. When they played the song Black Sabbath it just blew me away. Those opening chords live are nothing like how they sound on the album. So much more powerful sounding. The arena vibrated. Amazing! But yes, that's too loud. My old ears can't take that any more.
