I have a Denon 4502ci on the way. I have not yet bought an amplifier but plan to in the next couple of months and I think I've narrowed it down to Parasound. Either the A31 three channel or the A51 five channel.
There's about $1500 difference between the two and since money doesn't yet grow on trees, saving the cash would be nice.
Here's the question that has been bouncing around in my head:
1) Buy the A51 to power all the speakers?
2) Buy the A31 to power the L/C/R and let the Denon AVR handle the surrounds?
The surrounds have lighter duty in an HT set up so I'm thinking the Denon should be able to handle it.
But I don't want to have buyer remorse either. I'd like to save the extra money but I also don't mind spending it if there's something significant to be gained.
Any advice would be very much appreciated. Different amp(s), different configurations. I'm open to suggestions.
