What separates have the features (HDMI switching, Audyssey room EQ, Faroudja scaler, 3 sub support, etc) for a low enough price that will allow you to buy it and also buy 10 channel of amplification all for 5000 dollars?
Sanjay...one config immediately comes to mind.....
10 Outlaw M200 monoblocks (with separate power supplies and amps for each channel @ 200w/channel @ 8 OHMs and 300w/channel @ 4 OHMs.
--7 amps=$1,973 (if you need more, you can add 3 more for ~$197 per channel)
--Pioneer Elite 56 TXi with i-link and Advanced MCACC for about $1,100
--one 4X HDMI switcher for about $400 (if you need that)
Total price? Between ~$3,475 and ~$4,065
If you talk to the Outlaw guys, you may even be able to do better. Plus, the amplification is better.
I'm sure I could come up with a bakers dozen other configureations which would be as good or better performance for less cost.
