So the amplifier itself doesn't say on it if it is a series 1 or series II on it? I can only tell if I call B&K? I couldn't find a year built on the amplifier anywhere.... Is it on the amp anywhere?
Does anyone know if more power goes to three channels by only using three channels?
If it gets this hot using three channels, I can't imagine how hot it would get using all five channels.....
Bi-Amping? I never thought of that.... Sounds a little risky to me... By that you mean using Y cables to go from two channels on the amp amp to the speaker and using a Y cable to go from the preout on the receiver receiver to two channels on the amp? Am I right that that is risky?
Nobody talked about quality of the cables? Should I get better quality cables from the receiver pre-outs to the amplifier? Would it help for shielding?
In terms of the sound, its different.. By that I mean, when I first turn it on, it seems like I can hear incredible things out on it that I have never heard before, then I can't tell if its my ears or what, but it may be muting the highest of sounds after a while say two to three minutes into the recordings... Maybe I am just hearing things that aren't there, just because I am listening so intently. Could also be the recordings from the Leno Show (Test HD clips used so far for testing...) I tell you though that the sheer power from the amp for movies is like Wow... I feel that nothing is being held back now.... My speakers have never sounded better in terms of actually hearing the nuances of the peoples voices with the Emit tweeters compared to just using the receiver's supposed 100 watts per channel....
I just don't want the amp to conk out due to overheating say six months from now and go back to the Wife and say.... Remember that great amp that I liked so much; well it conked out....
