I have a Pioneer SC-1222 receiver running a 5 speaker set. The sub is self amped. The Pioneer is rated at: Power Output Per Channel (1kHz@8ohm) 120. I am considering a dedicated amp for my mains, which are Arx A5 (I believe to be 6ohms speakers). If I were to get an amp, such as the Emotiva UPA-200 - which their website reports as (rated power; THD < 0.05%): 125 watts / channel (8 ohms; all channels driven) do you feel it would be worth it? If so, why? I read the reported statistics and I see the receiver at 120 a channel and the dedicated amp at 125. What would be the benefit, if any? Thank you in advance for any input and recommendations received.
