I'm setting up 7.1.4 in the next few weeks.
I have a Denon x4300h, which allows for 11.2, but only powers 9 speakers. I have another amp with external inputs, Denon AVR-1906.
The amp options in the 4300h allow you to select a single pair to offload to another amp.
The two options are FR and FL or SR and SL. ***I believe all pre-outs are active at all times, but I'm not sure of this***
What is the best way to split the power? Should I do LCR on the AVR-1906, and everything else on the x4300h? Would you offload only 1 pair, or more than one using the pre-outs on the x4300?
I think this is correct, but need help.
For the x4300h:
Set amp to 11.1 ch setting: http://manuals.denon.com/AVRX4300H/E...DRDZMLfhtkhddn
In that diagram, it only offloads the TRR and TRL speakers.
For that pre-out on the x4300h, does it plug into the AVR-1906 on any external input?
If so, does that mean I can also send the other 2 Atmos channels?
This would have the x4300 powering the 7 speakers and the AVR-1906 powering the 4 Atmos speakers.
Will that work, or am I missing something important?
From the manual:
When “Assign Mode” is set to “11.1ch”, selects the PRE OUT
connector the external power amplifier used in MAIN ZONE.
The PRE OUT connectors that can be selected differ depending on the
combination of “Floor” - “Layout” and “Height” - “Layout” settings
configured in the menu.
