Hello well I finally made up my mind on some off board power would like some opinions on how I did and where to go in the future. Here is my current setup, well the important parts Denon 3803 Denon 1600 Toshiba 57HDX82 Fronts CDM 9NT's Center CDM CNT Rears CDM 7NT's SVS 20-39 Pc+ Room = 29x29x8 (HT/bar) Music (2ch)/movies = 60-40 The B&W’s have always been crying for more power but the Denon has done an okay job for the last 8 months and would have probably shined even more on a more efficient speaker line When I initially put this together I knew I would be moving into separates but in baby steps. I took the first baby step this weekend- hope it was the right one ( I think it was), I purchased the Rotel 1080 (2x200) to light up the 9nt's, however they had to order and will have Wednesday. I was having a hard time deciding between the 1080 and the 1075 (5x120) same price. I listened to both with the 9nt’s and I must say that both amps are great performers but the 1080 had the additional headroom and extension the 9’s were looking for. It was my initial thinking that the 1075 would probably give me more bang for the buck at this time but in the long run I felt the 1080 was a better choice as I will be adding more power this fall, probably the 1090 (2x380). My dilemma is what to do with the center I am concerned with the front matching running the Denon and Rotel amps which I can live with for a while but what to do about later? I will not be moving to 7.1 system for a couple of years which would make it an easier choice as I could get the big 5 channel next. Any thoughts?
