Im going to use my Oppo 103 as a pre pro until I can get something next year. Just wondering if there are any issues running the 7125 on a normal home 15amp circuit? Only other stuff on the circuit would be my plasma tv 65" and VTF15H.
Based on what my Monster Power 5100 amp meter tells me, I would say probably not. I currently have 5 channels of the Outlaw 200wx7 amp running Paradigm Studio 60's front and 20's rear, a Denon 5700 as pre-amp, Oppo 93, projector and a Velodyne HTS-15. Cranking the volume to ~100db listening levels, I typically saw less than 5A total draw. However, years ago, without the Outlaw amp, I remember cranking up War of the Worlds, the scene where the alien ship first appears, and seeing close to 11A! I have never seen anything close to that, though.
I did run a separate circuit to my home theater, though, with 10ga wire and a 20 amp dedicated circuit. I didn't want anything else to interfere, etc...
My 770 is well used, but I also got a great deal on it. Now I need to work on getting a better pre-amp. Unfortunately, I'm finding that latest pre's with the Audyssey going for a decent amount of $$...
The manual should say to put 2-3" above the amp.
