MAn, you are done now. The never ending upgrade cycle is there for you. First 10K, then 50K, then 100K then 500K.
Let me know if they sound Cleaner to you once you have the EMOTIVA. The larger crowd is on the side on NOT needing ANY extra Amplification but the AMP Crowd BEATS you WITH their FLowery JArgon, some of which does not even make sense. They are counting on the novice to be so impressed by this Techno-Jargon that they think they will find the ideal sound if they use an External Amp. Also the feeling of owning something that you feel automatically makes you an Audiophile hehehehe.
Been there done that, thank god I did not buy anything.
You Ears should AND your Speakers in that ORDER if you crank them up too loud and it may not be CLEAN.
You should really have waited for that HT friend of yours to come and give you some advice on the Room Nulls and Sound Treatments and THEN would be time to buy the AMP.
Congratulations though for having the discretionary income to throw caution to the Winds. Please do share if you percieve that there is a noticeable difference in your sound. At least then it would be worth it.
There is a Rabid EMO following here but they are only at the Lower End of the so called Audiophile Ladder/Scale. Should have gone for the ATI or Carver or one of those Higher end ones to REALLY get the CLEAN sound. EMO vs the High End is like the Pro Amp vs the EMO debate LOL.
There was some great great advice from the people here. Great Thread.
