Hello everyone, need some help here and want to get some insight from you guys.
I recently upgraded a few things in my system, my current system consists of the following:
2 Polk RTI-A9's
1 Polk CSI-A6 center
2 Polk Monitor 50's for the rear
Elemental Designs A350 Sub
Pioneer Elite PRO 141 FD Monitor 60 inch
I am very happy with my current speakers, the A9's which I recently obtained, but the receiver is the weak point in the system. I have an onkyo sr606 which I have had for years.
Now here is where I am torn, I know I have to upgrade the receiver, as I can't even run an amp with it. I have the following two things I have been considering.
Pioneer Elite CS-55 receiver. I am thinking it should be sufficient to run everything.
Or, go with a Pioneer receiver which is lower in the line but still allows pre amp outs and get an Emotiva XPA 3 to run the A9's and CSI A6.
Cost is a consideration and that is where I am torn. What would suit me better in my situation. Any advice or guidance is highly appreciated. If any other information is required to help in guiding my down the right path, let me know. Thanks again.
I mostly watch movies, and maybe 10 % of the time for music.
