I'm clueless and trying to learn when it comes to home audio, so please tell me what amps I should be looking at, if any? I didn't see the Emotiva LPA-1 anywhere for sale.
I personally do not have that much experience with amps . the onlt two that i have owned are the NAD 218 THX(two Channel amp) and the Emotiva LPA-1(what i curreently use ). Though a lot of people say that you can't go wrong with almost any amp from Emotiva, as far as bang for the buck goes.
You can pick up a used amp on audiogon pretty reasonably.
This one is supposedly very good for the moneyhttp://www.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls....-7-channel-amp
Here is a list of all of the Emotiva amps for sale on Audiogonhttp://cgis.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/srch_fs.pl
I hear good things about the MPS-1 and i would use two channels for each left and right speaker (bi-amp them).
In my opinion the RS6 really open up when bi-amped. When I ran them with one amp channel i could hear some cabinet resonance when pushed , but not when bi-amped . I hope this helps. maybe others could chime in as well.
I know that you will get people that tell you that you do not need an amp at all, and they are correct , but i personally feel that those speakers do best with an amp and when Bi-amped.
It doesn't have to be an amp that delivers massive power especially when bi-amped. Even this amp should be good http://emotiva.com/upa7.shtm
It is the Successor to the LPA-1
I hope this helps
