    Or should I wait a year or 2 and buy seperates or a better reciever? BTW-I'm planning on using the amp for the 2 main channels.

    Additionally where is the cheapest place to get a 5200.

    I was about to ask this same question. But I have the 3801 instead.

    I think the weakest part of a receiver is the amp so if you can reduce some of the load it can only help. By taking the main speaker load off your recvr it may even allow it to run a little cooler.The only draw back is you now have to buy additonal cables.

    If you go the seperate route in a year or two you can still use the extertnal power amp with the new system.

    Adding the external AMP to the receiver will give you the headroom, clarity, imaging, etc that everyone hears when they use better AMPs. My personal experience with my Denon 1801 and Rotel RMB-1066 AMP, brought a new life to my speakers. Now with the purchase of a Marantz AV560 Pre/Pro and the removal of the Denon has brought even more.
