I'd really like to own one of these capable AVP beasts! 8,000 is above my league though. I'd be happy with a used machine. Any idea what the price would likely be? Now that I read the upgrade-manual, I am suffering from the want-it-fever...
Would it be a bad idea to settle for two Emotiva XPA-5 for amplification, since their 200 Watt/ch is more than enough for the 95dB sensitive speakers I am building (only the center is 90 dB). I the weight is anything to go by: the 2 Emo's weigh as much together as the Denon 10ch amp. So I am guessing the combined power supplies of the XPA's are more than capable enough.
Would have been nice to have 10.2 (L+R Wide + Height and 1 back surround as in the original 10.2 setup) but alaas... I'd settle for Wides.
