A) as mentioned this is the classified section
B) no, it will sound like crap. Buy a real center channel that is designed for that purpose.

LOL. You can pretty much always figure if a year old post is bumped, it's going to be by someone with less than 10 posts.

OK, just for you I'll rephrase. Most new receivers are designed to handle low impedance loads, compared to receivers of yesteryear. I'm willing to bet there is a much greater percentage of receivers...

I'm not quite sure what you're getting at. Most receivers are designed for 8 ohm speakers, with the newer ones being able to allow lower ohm speakers to be used. Lower ohms allow more current, which...

Considering the A5000 doesn't have any amplifiers at all (it's a pre pro); I think it might have a tough time driving any speaker load, regardless of their efficiency. ;)

Why would I audition the...

It should be common knowledge that most speakers will dip below their rated ohms throughout the bandwidth. It's not really deceptive labeling. When the speaker is idle, when tested, it registers...

CA is only 7.1 which rules it out right there. As mentioned, the majority of my use is for movies; but when I do listen to multi channel, I do want great SQ.

You would be the first person I've...

I really hate running in high lamp mode, or being required to. My screen is also 10' wide (Seymour AV), and I have a very long throw. I don't know, I might end up sticking with the Mits. It is very...

That's good to know.

I'm pretty sure I heard otherwise; I'll see if I can find it. I'm running an AT screen so no need for DL.

My reasoning behind adding an additional amp was due to the fact...

Lot of different opinions out there.

For the higher end I like

1) Parasound Halo
2) Earthquake Cinenova

For great amps that are more budget friendly

1) Outlaw Audio

Yammy A5000 or Denon 4520ci to replace Onkyo 3009

I just sold my Onkyo 3009 to a buddy as I've been getting the itch to try out something different. I've been an Onkyo "fanboy" since the release of the 805/875/905. I've gone through quite a few...

No offense, but I think it will sound like crap. Neo x actually takes the signal from the FL/FR speakers and applies to the height channels, and the surrounds are applied to the wides.
