I have a question regarding the necessity of an amp or not, here my setup:

Receiver :Denon AVR-X3000
Center Speaker : RC 64
Left/Right Speaker : RF 62
Sub : Vedoldyne DLS4000R

I am wondering if there is a real benefit of adding an amp to my configuration ?

Anybody has any thoughts ?

Thank you !!!

Ironically, you were posting this question as I was reviving an old thread about the RF-7s! eek.gif

I am curious on what advice you are going to be getting so I will follow your thread as well. smile.gif Good Luck, but my advice is to use an SPL meter to hear how loud you are listening to material now and ask yourself if you want it louder...If so and it starts to distort, then you may benefit from an external amp.

The Denon X-3000 does NOT have any pre-outs to support an addititional amp.

Why do you feel you might need a different amp?

Are you not getting enough volume?

The previous generation of your receiver tested at this:
Quote:
Two channels driven continuously into 8-ohm loads:
0.1% distortion at 126.8 watts
1% distortion at 152.1 watts

Five channels driven continuously into 8-ohm loads:
0.1% distortion at 77.7 watts
1% distortion at 90.8 watts

Seven channels driven continuously into 8-ohm loads:
0.1% distortion at 74.3 watts
1% distortion at 84.3 watts

Given that you are only running 3 speakers with that amp and the rating of the previous generation you should have plenty of power.

Thank you for your reply !!

No I do not think I need more power, I just read that it can give some improvements regarding the sound, but I am still a newbie so I figured I would ask !!!

It won't sound any different. You are fine with what you have.
