Well, I can comment on having owned the RX-V2700. Which has a similar amp section.


I added a two channel Mackie amp. You know how people say they added an external amp, and were blown away? Well, 200x2 watts of Mackie power did not blow me away



I felt it could get a bit louder on musical passages.


Have you considered the XPA-3? That's the route I would go if I decided I needed more power (which I don't.) It's cheaper, probably lighter, and will cover the more important front channels, while letting the amps in the 3800 cover the surrounds, and if needed, rear surrounds.


The XPA-5 might be nice though, if you need to amp a zone.
