Add a two, five or seven channel Emotiva Amp to my Denon AVR-X4000?
My new Denon AVR-X4000 does not have the same "punch" or warmth as my old AVR-2809. It also runs a good bit hotter.
I'm considering adding an Emotiva UPA-200, 500 or 700.
Since the UPA-200 is cheaper, weighs less, and would provide more power to my two front main speakers (Dahlquist 9-Cs), it seems like the most logical choice. The Denon should have plenty of power for the center and surrounds, especially with no load on the front amps. Am I missing something in my thought process?
Also, is it safe to assume that Audyssey will compensate for the extra power in the front two channels, and not overpower the main speakers during the setup process?
