    Hi all. I currently have a McIntosh MC-302, and a pair of B&W 802D speakers. I would like to try to get the surround sound effect for music and maybe home theater. I was wondering if I would need a preamp like McIntosh MX134 in order to fully achieve that, or is it unnecessary?

    I am setting up a new 7.4.1 surround sound system. I recently purchased 4 BR03 for the surround sound speakers due to their quality and aesthetic, but am wondering if they are overkill for surround speakers. I am planing to use RSL C34e as height speakers. Thanks for your input.
