Outlaw Audio Model 5000x. Use it to run your LCR (or LCR + a pair of surrounds) and let the AVR handle the rest.
No specific issue, just noticed when I was researching to buy the ultra towers, people would note they need lots of power to get the best from them, 86db and my Denon has always gotten hot, because i have always pushed my old and now new system because I listen to movies really loud,watch Netflix in 4k all day, (so I was also worried since I pushed my old system hard, would the new speakers make it even hotter , the Denon it is in a cabinet but is open, and I just bought a aircom cooler -something I should of done 5 years ago, and plan to see how the system sounds -give it a few weeksI run two setups—one with separates and one with an AVR. I drive SVS Ultra towers and bookshelves with my Denon X8500H in a room twice your size. Are you noticing anything specific or do you feel others’ comments influencing you? It’s natural for the amp section to get hot i keep my Denon in an open rack. If you have it in a closed cabinet the heat will be exacerbated.
Hello, thanks for the reply , do u like that amp or do u like the monprice monolith or save money get the outlaw 5000x but it is less watts or better 3 channel amp that is 1200 and under?Audiophilia is an odd hobby. Some will claim that you need huge amounts of "headroom" (extra power margin) to get decent sound. Others will say that you have to use a tube amp, even if it maxes out at 25W/channel.
I'm not smart or experienced enough to argue either way.
I'm using an Emotiva XPA-3 Gen3 amp to drive my LCR, which are Hsu CCB-8s. I never experimented with just driving them off my AVR-X4300H.
I like the Emotiva. I got it during a period where the Monoprice Monolith amps were unavailable for a few months. Both were $1200 or less at the time (February 2018). The XPA-3 Gen3 runs cool. It's fortunate that it isn't much deeper, or it wouldn't fit well in my AV rack.Hello, thanks for the reply , do u like that amp or do u like the monprice monolith or save money get the outlaw 5000x but it is less watts or better 3 channel amp that is 1200 and under?
