So..I use this system for 50% music and 50% movies.
Also, I got each speaker for half off as I was working at Best Buy (no longer am), so out of the choices I was limited to, these sounded the best to me.
Bc I am a music fan as well, would buying 1 multi channel amp and hooking all speakers into it also give me the awesome stereo performance that I desire? I will be getting a couple more speakers (for 7.1), and this all has to fill a large room (currently I have them in a small room, but we are moving). Is there any real benefit to splitting up the load and putting the 2 mains on their own amp and say, the rest of them on another?
Also, I have seen a couple other names thrown around - Rotel, Emotiva, and of course ATI. How should I go about choosing one - is there any real benefit of 1 over another, or should I just let my ear make the decision for me?
What would make ATI amps more suitable to my situation over others?
