I've been itching to buy an amp for a while now, and I'm getting ready to pull the trigger. But now I'm not sure which way to go...

I have the opportunity to get a one year old Emotiva XPA-5 Gen 1 for $750, but I don't know if the upgrades related to the 2nd gen as well as having new equipment is worth the extra cash.

Current setup is:

Onkyo TX-NR709 AVR

Polk RTi8 Fronts

Polk CSi a6 Center

Polk RTi6 Surrounds

Polk RTi4 Rears

Hsu VTF2-Mk4 sub

I would hook the fronts, center, and surrounds to the amp, and let the Onkyo power the rears.

Does anyone here have experience with both generations of the Emotiva XPA-5 amplifier?
