A general question about AV Receivers. When using a stereo amp connected to the preouts of an AVR and then connecting the main speakers this way, will this actually increase the power output of the remaining channels (surround, center).
Let's say an AVR can deliver 5x20W, would this method then lead to an output of 3x33W for surround and Center, since there's no power going through its internal amps for the mains?
Audiosceptics accept audio trials using 25 people. A recent Oxford study with over 353,000 patient records from 639 separate clinical trials shows for every 1,000 people taking diclofenac or ibuprofen there would be 3 additional heart attacks, 4 more cases of heart failure and 1 death every year.
Thanks for your insightful inputs!
The centre you have on order is 90dB efficient which helps a bit (the mains are given as 88dB, which doesn't seem much different but in reality is).
So far, I could not hear any distortion on the KEFs either. It's probably gonna be fine, since we mostly watch movies at night where we can't go too loud anyway due to neighbours and our sleeping boy So probably for the current situation it's ok.
Nevertheless I'm still thinking of adding a poweramp as some sort of life insurance for the fronts And maybe a notch up in quality...
