Hi all,
I recently took order of a Emo XPR-5 (400W x 5) . Love it. Just ordered an XPR-2 (600W x 2) today and will be running it with a Yamaha RX-A3020 (150W x 9) for as the pre-amp. My speakers will be set up as follows. RF and LF via the XPR-2, Center, RS, LS, RBS, LBS via the XPR-5 and all four presence speakers via the Yamaha. Will this cause any problem as all have different power rating? I assume I could just volume match and be good to go? I will eventually be picking up another emo for the presence speakers and may move to the dedicated pre-amp Yamaha has coming out later this year. Most concerned with the fact that my front three speakers will be of different power ratings?

thx.
