I recently bought a set of A5+ in bamboo for dinning/kitchen music. They're awesome! No boomy overwhelming bass, just accurate beautiful sound.
So.. I hooked them up to my TV in the LR to see how they handled movies. Incredible! Dialog was crisp and clear, explosions massive. I was about to buy some $250 soundbar - Now I want to get another set of A5s, but don't want to shell out another $469 (bamboo is extra $70).
Question is this: Do the older A5s (not +) overheat and shut down when listened to at normal volumes? I've hear of scattered reviews that they shut down due to overheating, but wondering if its because they're cranked up to 75%+ for long periods of time. Movies usually necessitate 25-35% volume at best. They can be had on ebay for around $200, and it seems like a no brainer, plus a sub can be linked wirelessly later down the road. Another option would be a new set of A2 ($169 new on ebay) + AW-1 ($99) and a cheap $99 sub.
