    I have a Denon 3803 powering B&W matrix 803's, a matrix htm center and Boston Acoustics towers for the surrounds. I was thinking of upgrading the amp section. The 803's need a good bit of power to sound their best. Would i get the best sound for the buck with a two or three channel amp and let the denon do the rest or a five channel and take the denon out of the equation. I listen mostly to home theater and not to loudly due to young kids. Any thoughts?? Thanks in advance.

    PS. I was thinking of buying used

    3 channel amps are perfect for somebody with a reciever. It takes the load off of the reciever escentially upping the power on the channels the reciever drives. Secondly imo it is just as important if not more to make sure you have plenty of power on the center channel as you do on your main L/R.

    Oh by the way, I have a parasound 2003a (220 watts X3) that I just listed in the hardware for sale section [​IMG]
