Why bother? If you're going to use a 6CH amp anyway, just power Front Wide/Zone 2/Zone 3, otherwise, you'll have to manually set the "Powered Zone 2/3" setting ON/OFF each time you want to use one configuration or the other. Makes no sense.

Because my 6 channel amp is 80 watts while 5010 can deliver 150watts, also the amp I'm planning to buy is upa700 and it will turn all six speakers are n three different zones on. Correct me if I am wrong.

The power shouldn't be a deciding factor here unless 3dB (likely a bit less) is of supreme importance here- 80w from a dedicated amplifier (not a channel from a AV receiver) is likely indistinguishable from the 150w you "may" get out of the receiver.


Remember- a doubling of power (watts) raises SPL by 3dB- if you haven't already bought speakers for the Zone2/Zone3 it may make more sense to spec slightly higher efficiency models if you think that 80w isn't enough juice.


And the Emotiva will only be powering the speakers that you are sending a signal to the Emotiva to play- so no- it won't be playing all 6 channels everytime the Emotiva is on. It will be capable of doing this, but if you don't send the Onkyo signal to each and every channel of the emotive then some speakers will be mute.

Oppo & power amp hook up ? on 5010

I have a 5010, & recently added a Emotiva UPA 7 to it via pre outs. I am wondering if there is any way to hook up an Oppo 95 Blu Ray player besides using just an HDMI cable for audio? Since I am using most of the pre outs on the Onkyo, is there a better option available still to hook up the Oppo besides just HDMI?

HDMI is probably your best option. You could use analog but it would be stereo only. And would also need to be re-digitized inside your 5010 if you use Audyssey or any other processing (likely in anything other than Pure Direct mode). A coaxial or Toslink connection would also have limitations -- no DTS-HD MA or Dolby TrueHD, no hi-resolution PCM with more than 2 channels, etc.

5010 11.1 and external amp for powering speakers 10 and 11.

Hi, in the main theater room I am using the built-in receiver amps. To go to 11.1, I have to connect the FRONT WIDE PRE OUTs to an external amplifier. I was hoping I could use the powered zone 2 of the onkyo 626 receiver.

Instead of buying a 2 channel amplifier, I was thinking of purchasing the onkyo 626 and connecting the "front wide pre outs" of the 5010 to the CD RCA input of the 626.

Then when I want to activate 11.1 on the 5010, i would power on the onkyo 626 zone 2, switch to the CD input and therefore get 11.1 (by using the zone 2 amps of 626).

However I just want to confirm that this will work in a balanced fashion--i think the volume control will still be from the 5010, and I would keep the zone 2 volume fixed on the 626, with variable volume control from the 5010 receiver.

The reason i want to purchase the onkyo 626 is because the price of the onkyo M 5010 (2 channel amp) is currently similar in price to the onkyo 626. Plus I can use the main zone amps of the onkyo 626 for powering audio/video in another room.

Are there any issues with using the powered Z2 amps of the 626 to enable 11.1 configuration on the 5010 ?

Thanks,
Ak
