re. PA410. I have found this to be a very solid and quite cool running amp. It’s pretty dynamic and more than enough for heights. The toroidal transformer is virtually silent.I'm thinking of putting a system together with AV40 + PA240 + PA720. Is anyone using the PA (720, 240, for 410) amps? I can't seem to find any experiences or reviews on these. If not, what would be a good amp(s) to pair with the AV40? I have a GoldenEar 7.4.4 setup, with GE One.R and XXL up front, Three+ on sides and Fives in the SB position and using LFE on all internal subs and 4 (unknown, came with house) ceiling Atmos speakers. I'm looking for a warmer, sweeter sound with as much detail as possible. Suggestions welcome .
There is a firmware to update to resolve a speaker noise on powering up. Also, I found that in my environment at least the AVR20 outputs some horrible ground loop interference (which I never experienced when testing the PA410 with an Anthem MRX).
I really like the PA410 (having owned a 4 channel Arcam G class PA in the past which sounded like I had put an old fridge in the room it was so noisy, this does the job just as well for heights.
