Emotiva is probably the best bang for your $$$ for an affordable amp. I ended up buying 2 Outlaws M2200, and 1 Outlaw M200 to power up my front 3 speakers. I like the Outlaw amps because they come with 12v triggers or you can use their MUSIC option, which pretty much turns on the amp as soonest any sound is being sent to it. It takes about a min. to shut down once you turn off your AVR.

From my understanding the 12V trigger, turns the connected external amp ON when the AVR is turned ON right? Otherwise, like the SC1222, I would need to turn ON the amp manually, right?

7.2 HT Setup:

Affirmative. 12v triggers turns on the amp when you turn on the AVR. Or you can use a smart power strip. I've got one of those, and it works well if you don't have 12v triggers. Or if you buy the Outlaw amps they have the music option, which pretty much acts as a 12v trigger.biggrin.gif

Thank you sir! I'll have to check out those amps! I was actually looking at the emotiva or even the crown.

Crown amps are good amps and inexpensive, but their cooling fan are loud. I had a QSC-GX3 and I just couldn't stand how loud the fan was. I ended up selling it. The Outlaw amps run cool and silent.

Just picked up the Pioneer SC-1222 from Costco for $399.99 plus tax...to run my 2.0 system that consist of the RTIA9s! Hoping to find a deal on a CSIA6 these next few days! If not, I'll just get it from the Polk EBay store. One question, do I still need to run the room correction thing with a 2.0???

The 1222/1227 run pretty warm, maybe mine does because of where it is located in my rack. But that is one of the reason I went separates now.
