That's a line from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid, and it generally means someone is overdoing it. YMMV.

My experience with Emotiva was that the XPA amps can be bright so I'd suggest going with whatever speaker is warmer. I've only had the Sierra2, and they knocked my socks off, but I think you'll have...
