Big Dan also mentioned a stereo amp option in a single width blade form factor.

Three 250w monoblock blades plus four 125w two channel blades would be a damn nice amp for a 7.x.4 Atmos setup.

I'm keeping an eye on unRAID 6 too. I'm thinking about running Plex when the HD Homerun DVR software is ready. Definitely need new hardware - My unRAID unDELL is working well but it's ancient.
