Hi I was asking about how to hookup my Emotiva IPS-1 7 channel amp to the 3000
I did some more reading and may have figured it out. The front and front presence preouts are shared so it kind of threw me off
On my old yam receiver I currently have my front speakers biamped with the emo, the center driven with the emo, the surrounds emo driven, and the rear surrounds driven by the receiver.
Id like to know how to hook up the emo up to the 3000. There isnt a configuration that shows exactly what I want nor is there any amp assign like I want to do.
Id like to have what I have now, but also add front presence, and maybe another zone. On page 24 of the manual it shows a 7 channel plus front. The diagram shows rear presence and back surrounds. If I dont hook up the rear presence will the back surrounds and front presence work at the same time.
If I ext biamp the fronts and ext amp the center I still have 2 channels left, could I hook them up to the zone 2 or 3 preouts for another zone?
I didnt actually buy another 3000 yet, as many of you know my first 3000 that I bought from Amazon for $899 on black thursday was stolen by the DHL guy. They couldnt give me a replacement because they sold them all. Well they have some more in stock, but not for $899. Im going to see if they would sell me one for $899 and maybe free shiupping too.
The final tally would have been about $1300 and now I can get the 3010 for about $1550 all together locally. So about $250 more or maybe $350 or $450 more if amazon gives me free shipping.
The thing is I was checking out the differences in the US and Can versions. The US version has a HD tuner, a Sirius Sat input, more internet music options, and has a power consumption of 490 watts vs 400 (so is it more powerfull). It would be nice to get the 3010 for an extra few things, but if amazon will give me a great deal on the 3000
I think the US version is better, anythoughts would be appreciated.
