I have had my Rotel RSX 1055 and Monitor 7, CC370 Mini Monitor Pw 2200 setup together for almost 2 months now. I am pretty happy with it the Rotel has very clean sound and the Monitor series are a good jack of all tradeds for the price. Here is my "issue". My room is 15 X 17 in the basement but the right wall has a 6 foot opening (by the front speakers out onto a porch and also an open staircase up to the kitchen. My guess is that all this extra volume is sucking up some of my power. I often watch movies at 60 (out of 90) on the volume dial and still wold like it louder. I can't spend a ton of $ on a bunch of extras but any suggestions for what I could do? Like a 2 ch Rotel amp might help some but my center would still only have 75W. A 5 ch external amp would be too expensive (I think around $1000 canadian for my budget is about MAX). I am not really too aware of 3 channel amps. I'd be happy to consider GOOD used amps if they would make a difference BUT don't forget I'm in Canada so many sellers on Audiogon won't ship here. If I was looking at used what should I look at I don't know much about what companies or maodels to look for here. Any help would be appreciated.
