Is my AVR really hamstringing my LS50 LCR Front Soundstage for my Home Theater? Here are the manufacturer's specs:
Pioneer VSX-824k (5.1 80w per channels)
Watts per Channel (20Hz-20kHz,.08%[email protected]
2ch Driven) 80 Watts
Watts per Channel (1kHz,1%[email protected]
1ch Driven) 140 Watts
I know the LS50 goes down to 4ohm at lower frequencies, but i have my SVS PB1000 sub crossed over at 80hz. Max listening volume is around 50-55% on the dial (goes from 0-80).
Found a used Rotel RMB 1085
, which is a 5x100wpc class D amplifier
All channels driven, with 20kHz filter,
8 ohm load, 20Hz to 20kHz, <0.2% THD: 100 watts
4 ohm load, 1kHz, <1% THD: 180 watts
Total Harmonic Distortion At rated power, 20Hz-20kHz: < 0.2%
At one-half rated power, 20Hz-20kHz: < 0.03%
At 1 watt per channel, 20Hz-20kHz: < 0.03%
at rated power, 60Hz: 7 kHz, 4:1: < 0.03%
Damping Factor (8 ohms): 200
For $490CAD, about $360USD.
It would mean i would need to get a pre-processor as well though.
What do you guys think? This is for 60% movies, 20% tv, 20% music
