You can definitely here the difference versus an AVR. More punch, dynamics and clarity; these XPR amps from Emotiva have an excellent slew rate and damping factor. I would think you'd need a nice preamp like the HA-1 to take advantage of the high slew rate (versus an AVR's preout).
Drop by sometime because this setup and for sure the other one will amaze you if you're into audio.
i wish i could see and hear your setup, it looks amazing bro. somehow it makes me wonder if ur not dissapointed and bored having nothing to fiddle with on your stereo, as everything seems to be 100% archievement.
