Help Choosing External Power Amp for 7.1.4 (Atmos) Setup
With the recent news that Xbox One will be adding Dolby Atmos support, I decided to upgrade my existing 7.1 setup to an Atmos setup by adding 4 in-ceiling speakers.
Since my Aventage 3050 only powers up to 9.2 channels, I need an external stereo amplifier to power one of the pairs of overheads. Trouble is, I'm kind of tight on space, and all the amps I've seen so far are way bigger than what I can accommodate. Also, this is my first time dealing with an external amp setup, so I have to admit I'm not entirely familiar with what I need. Here's my current setup:
6 Polk 265-LS in-wall (L/R + surrounds)
1 Polk 255C-LS in-wall (center)
1 Polk DSW Pro 500 subwoofer
The new overheads I'll be installing are:
4 Polk 900-LS in-ceiling
So far, the closest amp I've been able to find that I *think* will suit my needs (mainly in terms of size) is a nice 120x2W PTA 4 Stereo Amp by Pyle (can't post links, sorry!), but I'm not sure if it's good enough quality-wise.
Can anyone give me some good suggestions on decent (but preferably small) amps I could use with the above equipment? I'd really appreciate any guidance.
