Despite all scientific theories, let's say you use monoblocks for the fronts, and 5 channel amp for the other channels. Will the monoblocks sound the same as if you use an integrated 7 channel amplifier?
If they are perfectly level matched. Some amps have gain of 28dB, some 32dB, some 34dB, etc. If you level match them, they will sound the same unless they are overdriven, defective, or you use some sort of EQ or DSP to change their sound.
But, again, we can agree to disagree. I am just giving my opinion based on all the amps and speakers I've heard.
Ear level match - they all sound different.
Precise level match - they all sound about the same.
