Anybody have any recommendations on what amp to buy to power the extra 2 channels to get my sunfire ultimate recevier's extra 2 channels going?

I am using an Onix A2150 amp (2-channels, 150W per) from ********** in conjunction with my TGIII. It's got a 12V trigger input that I connected to my Cinema 7, so it cycles on and off with the pre-pro and the other amp.

Why not try a Sunfire symphonic reference amp (seen them on ebay for $1k) to have the same sonic signature all the way around?

IMHO, its probably not worth the extra cash. I found that calibrating the level of the side-axis speakers slightly less than the fronts gives the best effect (especially if you're not using the exact same speakers for those 4 channels). My side-axis' are bookshelves timbre-matched to the front towers, but setting all levels equal just drew too much attention to them.


With the side-axis in place (hanging from the ceiling, outside of and 3 feet forward of the front towers), the front soundstage is huge--sounds like a movie theater with a "wall of speakers".
