If that's all one continuous space, then I'd shoot for at least one Hsu VTF-3 or VTF-15.

~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)

how to connect amp to receiver on the preouts

How do I pick a good amp to connect to a Denon 4500h/6500h on the preouts?

I have multiple rooms

Lower floor
1. 5.1 surround sound in the great room
2. 2, speakers in kitchen (open to the great room)
3. 2, speakers in the lower deck

upper floor
1. 5.1 surround in the loft
2. 2, speakers in the master
3. 2, speakers in the maser bath
4. 2, speakers in the upper deck


so I am looking at 10 speakers or 5 zones

in addition to 2, 5.1 surround environments

I think I need 2 amps?

should i get a more powerful 6500h to power all the lower floor

and get a 4500h for the upper?

In either case, should i get amp on both to connect to the preouts?

If i connect to preouts, that means the channels are not being used on the receiver?


Have to mention, all the speakers re ceiling speakers

specs on the 5.1 in lower floor is installed with

origin acoustics 3(D65s front) 2(D63 DT/SUR) rear

impedance: 6ohm
pwer handling: 25-140watts?

what does these mean?

@TonyWong that is a very expensive solution using an x4500 and x6500, you could probably get a whole home audio solution from OSD for way less https://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/...io-bundle.html

Maybe change your question and ask here or @rboster can move it for you https://www.avsforum.com/forum/36-home-v-distribution/

Good luck!

but thats a 2 channel amp. I got 11 channels on the 6500h.

I was told I could reuse the surround backs (L &R), Height1,2 for different rooms?

The wireless functionality can be had with any subwoofer using add-on components like these:
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=wireless+...b_sb_ss_i_3_18

If you're refering to this Sonos sub, it looks like a WAF-driven marketing gimmick:
https://www.sonos.com/en-us/shop/sub.html
$700 for claimed 25Hz extension (probably a 6 or 12db rolloff not the standard +/- 3db) is lousy. The fact that the website offers zero remotely detailed specs is a big red flag.

You can get similar (most likely better) performance from a $450 RSL Speedwoofer 10S with built in wireless:
https://rslspeakers.com/products/rsl...-10s-wireless/

$600 (plus $100 for the wireless kit) can get you something like a Hsu VTF-2 which would blow that Sonos out of the water.
