Just recently made the move to separates. Already ordered the pre/pro (Theta Casa Nova) but would like to get some advice on the amplifier setup. Is it better to have a high-end 5-channel amplifier (e.g., Bryston 9B-ST, Theta Intrepid, etc.) or a 3+2-channel amp setup (e.g., B&K Ref 2220 + Ref 3220)? Space is not a concern but sound is. I am planning on eventually going to a 7-channel setup but not in the short-term (not enough software). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! ------------------ "I not giving her the shot - you give her the shot!"
