Man, I thought you were using towers for the surrounds. I'm quite sure many are using your setup. Wanted to know how an unorthodox setup sounded with the emps.

No those Empteks are just extra speakers I have. Not many people have my setup

I just now saw this post, but I am using an Emotiva XPA-5 to drive the towers and the e56ci center. I'm not in the camp that thinks having an external AMP does much. I was never running out of power when running the speakers off my Denon, nor have I seen any sonic improvement switching over to the Emotiva. The only reason I am using the Emotiva is because when I upgraded to Atmos I needed the AMP and it did make more sense to run the front sound stage off of it as opposed to the surround/height channels.
