I have decided to not upgrade to a new AVR and just buy a amplifier. Right now I'm using an Oppo 103D, but will be upgrading to the higher model when the new Oppos are released. I haven't looked into buying amps before, so I'm not sure what to look at or what brand. I have a 7.3 setup, but my 3 subs have amps. I'm using Ascend Acoustics 340s LCR and (4) 200 HTMs for my surrounds. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You mean a power amplifier? So using the Oppo as pre-amp?


I personally don't like the idea of a source into a poweramp but I guess people are doing it


How many channels? Budget?

I'm not all the way sure of what to buy. I would like to keep everything under $1500

The 7125 is on sale for half the price. Will there be a big difference?

It has two inputs. Cable and HTPC. The Oppo covers my media player, 2d/3d player, and network.

I remember I had to buy a new AVR after I purchased my first projector in 2009. In 2010, I had to upgrade to a 1.4 AVR for 3D. Now its hdmi 2.0 and UHD or 4K, then next it is going to be 8K. I might as well get a good amp, rather than upgrading my AVR 3-4 more times in the next 10 years.
