Icehawk, You can always use diamond 9.0 or 9.1, they are smaller then the evo-8, officially not same line, but i think matching isn't that critical for surround speakers.
You did have the opus center, so you're not in same line for total setup anyway right?
Speaking about evo-DFS or diamond-DFS, what is what? there's a evo, a diamond and a dfs-20? evo looks lot like dfs-20 except for sensitivity. Is the 20 for the opus range? Or for the 9.6 because that is in the 90db range as well?
About my amps... here goes.. 4 chan car amp
, could be good from audiophile viewpoint because you can battery power it
. If it was not for the switching boost converter inside, but than again, there are amps that have switching PSU to make some class-G amp (if im correct).
Anyway, very dangerous statement, but i think they're not worse and probably better then a lot of receivers out there (specialy in output power and output impedance
