     Hey guys,  I've been a lurker around this site for a while now, and I want to say thanks as I've learned a fair amount from yall. I'm still a rookie when it comes to home theater stuff- there's just no replacement for hands on experience. I'm hoping I can get some opinions from people more...

    I need some suggestions. I currently have a Pioneer VSX-1014 with B&W DM604 fronts, B&W DM 602 rears and a B&W LCR 600 center. So I want to upgrade my amplifier so I am trying to decide between the XPA-2 and the XPA-5... my goal is that I simply want it louder. So do you think it would be...

     Finally building (hopefully) my dream theater/audio setup. For now, my questions are about the AV receiver/amp/stereo hookup. I will be using the system for 60/40 video/stereo. I "know" great sound/clarity and will be upset if Dark Side of the Moon doesn't floor me. Soooo I am about to...

    Putting together my first separate 7.2 AV system and need help in selecting my amp. I have decided to go with the Marantz AV-7701 for my processor. The amp will be driving three Fusion – 12 Tempest speakers LCR and not 100% sure what I’m using for the surrounds yet... probably the Fusion-8...

     Long story short I need a new sound system. My old one was a 7.1 surround of beginner quality. After scouring the internet for speakers I came across Magnepans. I decided to wander down to a home audio shop to audition a pair as I had never even seen the before let alone heard them. Needless...

    Which of the following will get me better more powerful sound at loud volumes: Yamaha A2020 vs Emotiva XPA-2 with VSX-1123? I have Polk RTI12 speakers.

     Hey everybody, I currently have the Yamaha Aventage RX-A2030 receiver powering Polk Audio RTI-A7's towers as fronts, A3's bookshelves as rear surrounds, and the Csi-A6 center channel speaker. The RTI-A9 towers just went on sale for a hot boxing week price so I pulled the trigger on them with...

    I have asked a similar question in the past but no one gave me a straight forward answer. How much of a difference would an Emotiva Amp make compared to a receiver in terms of sound quality. I currently have the Pioneer VSX-1123 but I am considering switching it to the Yamaha V773 because I...

    Hello All! I am looking to purchase an AVR to replace a 10-year-old Sony which was not the best to start with. I need it to have networking (ethernet at least, wi-fi a plus) and to be able to power a pair of Polk RTiA7 speakers which I've had for almost 2 years and have really not used since...

    I have the Polk RTI 12s and I am running them on the Pioneer VSX-1123. My first question is that how much of an improvement in sound quality would an emotiva XPA-2 provide because it is $799.99 at the moment and I got the speakers themselves for just $549.99. So is it worth spending so much...

    I have Focal 836 mains that are driven by an Emotiva XPA-2, medium sized Polk center channel, 2 Polk rears, plus a 12" Velodyne sub. 70% Music, 30% Movies. It is time to finally retire the Denon 3805 that I bought new in 2005. She has served me well. Besides being outdated, my only complaint...

    UPDATE 2: An Emotiva Support member has contacted me. They will be cross shipping another amplifier, return shipping slip included (which is great, because shipping this 70lb beast is not cheap). I just have to lug this over to a UPS store and pay for sending the new one, which is completely...

    I have been thinking of adding some external muscle amplification to my setup if only to get my monstrous Polk RTi12 mains some more juice (these things can handle a max IIRC of 500 watts each); right now, an Onkyo 605 is running the whole shebang with absolutely no issues at all (the RTi12s...

    I currently have a Yamaha a2020 with Polk speakers, 2 - 75Ts, 1 - 25C center channel and 4 - 35Bs surrounds and a Rythmik LVR12R. I have been looking at the Emotiva amps to drive my fronts and/or center channel, should I get the XPA-2 or XPA-3. The price difference is not a factor. Thanks.

    I'd like to begin planning to move my home theater components from the living room to a small coat closet. The closet is directly behind the viewing area facing the opposite direction. Within the closet I'd like to place a rack. Wiring in power will not be a problem. AC outlet will be located...

    Recently returned here - got another q for you guys. Going to be doing a 7.1 HT. I'm not overly concerned about the amps used for my surround channels. I have a good multi-channel now. I'm more focused on getting something decent for my two fronts (maybe for the center). I'm going to be driving...

     So my question is, I am looking at buying a pair of 803 or 802 Diamond speakers from Bowers & Wilkins and i am trying to decide who would give me the warmer, clear sound. I'm looking between the XPA-2 300wx2 or the CA2300 300wx2 from Classe'. What are your opinions on these?
