Nice little factory referb Black Friday sale going on for the e-mail followers, including XPR-5's, XPR-1's and an XMC-1/XPA-7 combo.

*Warning* None of my suggestions, ideas or even thoughts have any WAF, in any way!

Hi guys,

New to the forum. Can someone please provide feedback, comments on powering the following Klipsch speakers:

4 Klipsch R-115SW powered subwoofers
1 Klipsch RC-64 II center speaker
2 Klipsch RF-7 II front floorstanding speakers
2 Klipsch RF-7 II front wide floorstanding speakers
2 Klipsch RB-81 II front height surround speakers
2 Klipsch RB-81 II side surround speakers
2 Klipsch RB-81 II rear surround speakers

Option #1: I am considering using the two Emotiva XPA-2 300W RMS x 2 channels to power each pair of Klipsch RF-7 II which are rated at 250W RMS and one Emotiva XPA-7 200W RMS X 7 channels to power the Klipsch RC-64 II center speaker rated at 200W RMS and the six Klipsch RB-81 surrounds rated at 150W RMS. Are there any reference series amps from Emotiva that would be a good match for my speakers?

Option #2: Use two NAD Masters Series M22 amps 250W RMS X 2 channels ($3,000 each, $6,000 for both) and one NAD Masters Series M27 amp 180W RMS X 7 channels ($4,000)?

Can you recommend a better amp solution for these Klipsch speakers for a budget of $10,000 (amps only). Any help would be appreciated.

Vid of both my JBL Studio Series and Klipsch Reference Series II ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfMQczX-VU4 and the slideshow... http://s578.photobucket.com/user/tonycpa/slideshow/Home%20Theater%20Speakers

You will hear me before you see me!

I would also consider Parasound and the ATI 3000, 4000, and 6000 series.

Ok, I'll bite.

You don't need any amp for those speakers. In fact, if you were going to spend the money you spent on those speakers + the 10K that you want to spend on amps, you'd have a hell of a lot better setup with $20K worth of speakers.

If you do want an amp, that you don't need, I'd go for Class D.

You can pick up some Crown XLS 1500s for $199 and they put out 300 watts per channel at 8ohms.
