I cross posted this on the Emotiva thread, but...

I found this link (link
) about the Denon 5308CI receiver with all channels driven...Five channels driven continuously into 8-ohm loads
0.1 percent distortion at 146.1 watts
1 percent distortion at 184.6 wattsAll channels driven continuously into 8-ohm loads
0.1 percent distortion at 141.2 watts
1 percent distortion at 169.3 watts
So, do you think I would benefit from an Emotiva MPS-2 as an external amp?
I listen to music and HT (see signature link post #1 for HT equipment).
Usually with kids at sub 85 dB volumes but ocassionally at reference or higher levels.
I don't think things sound bad now, but just looking at potential upgrades.
