I currently have a Pioneer Elite SC-05 driving two Monitor Audio RX-6's, along with their matching Monitor Audio center speaker. I am wondering if investing in an external amplifier is going to make any noticeable difference in my setup. I mainly use it for watching movies (honestly...99% of the time movies). I was looking at the Emotiva XPA-5, but obviously its a bit pricey, but seemed to give some head room if I added some rear speakers.
Any thoughts on this? Money better spent elsewhere? The only alternative I could think of is with my subwoofer setup - currently I have a vintage (90's model) ADS subwoofer that has a retro-fitted Dayton 250W plate amplifier in it...so I guess I could focus on that. But the subwoofer already seems to have plenty of power for my room (20 x 15 feet or so...inside an otherwise small apartment).
Thanks in advance!
