Hello All.


I am designing my first Home Theater in my new home and need some advice for processing and powering.


I have a $2000 (approx) budget for a receiver and amplifier.


Though sound is more important than looks, I seem to be drawn toward Emotiva for it's design and am leaning toward that route, but I am open to suggestions


This is my speaker configuration


SVS MTS-01 (x2) - Power handling: 20-250 watts / 4-6 ohms

SVS MTS-01 (x2) - Power handling: 20-250 watts / 4-6 ohms

SVS MBS-01 (x2) - Power Handling 20-150 watts / 8 ohms



Here are 3 different EMOTIVA sound processing configurations I am considering:


1. Emotiva UMC-1 / Emotiva UPA-2, Emotiva UPA-2, Emotiva UPA-1

2. Emotiva UMC-1 / Emotiva XPA-5

3. Emotiva UMC-1 / Emotiva XPA-2, Emotiva XPA-3


Which of these configurations would give me the best performance witout driving the amplification to max power?


Thanks

I see zero reason to do anything else.

I've read in other places that you receive better performance when to separating the amplification than use an all-in-one unit. Which is basically why I am asking.

They are wrong




and your speakers are not going to care one bit.
