Is it worth getting a a-500 to run the atmos?
At the moment i have them on the onkyo 830. Atmos speakers are Boston acoustic soundware.
Room is 11x12 with 8ft ceilings.
A-500 would only run me $382.
Even without any info on your listening habits, I’d say it’s not worth it. Your Atmos speakers can’t handle much more power than a typical AVR delivers anyway, so you wouldn’t likely notice a difference with an outboard amp. But that’s me.
