Amp or older AVR?
I recently up graded to a new Atmos enabled 9.2 AVR. It is currently set up in a 5.1.4 configuration. In order to go full 7.1.4, I need an additional amp to power either the fronts or the surround back.
I was thinking to power the front, which are the Pioneer EFS73 speakers rated at 140W at 4ohms, I'd keep an eye out for a used AVR like an older SC-25/27 or SC-35/37 for around $400. But, I am completely ignorant to what quality 2 channel amplifiers may be available for the same price range.
Or, I might go cheap and keep the fronts hooked up to my AVR, and power the surround backs with an inexpensive 2 channel AVR for Less than $150. I really don't want to invest a ton of money in the surround backs.
If I decide to power the fronts, Any suggestions on a 2 channel amp at or under $400 that will compliment the capability of the speakers?
