They haven´t started on the 5 according to my knowledge. The 4a will be max 12 channels.

But there are several other firmware issues with the existing version 4 Theta should solve also.

There is no CB in that setup. It is strictly two channel so only a Gen8.

The 20Ts are full range, but the subs add some bass weight and quality below 25Hz. Same with SW12 setup with 20Ts.

Yes, you´re right. My point was only to emphasize that each section of the speaker had its own amp, not only biwire setup. (Prometheus has double set of speaker terminals so with a standard monoblock...

True biamping. Two amps for each speaker, so separate amps for bass unit and head unit (mids/treble). This requires two pairs of speaker cables. From the Gen8 a set of XLR interconnects with Y-split...

Really high end setup from customer in Norway with Gen8 S3 dac/pre and 4x Prometheus driving a pair of Aerial 20T V2 speakers. Adding a 2nd pair of Prometheus raised the level to "out of this world"....

I would recommend that you check out the new Theta Dreadnaught D amp. Theta mates very well with Aerial. Theta is way above McIntosh in sound qualities in my opinion.

This model will be a completely new model between the 7T and 20T, perhaps called 12T. A model replacing the 20T V2 will definately be more expensive than that and will earliest be available in 2016.
