I have recently purchased a rotel rmb 1095 from a fellow forum member. That being said, i currently have the following set up:
1. Onkyo txnr 1009
2. panamax power conditioner
4. POLK AUDIO lsic (center), lsi9 (fronts), polk psw 1000 subwoofer, polk audio FXI A6 surrounds, LSI7'S as front heights ( i dont have space for front width channels)
5. EPSON thx 8700ub projector with 106 inch elite motorized screen.
Anyhow, my dilemma is that i have been using the onkyo 1009 unit pushing 7 channels. The rotel amp is a 5 channel amp so i am highly considering just taking down the lsi7s and use them as surrounds instead and eliminating the fxia6 surrounds completely.
Another possible scenario is to just power my main 5 speakers with the rotel and have the onkyo power up my front heights?
My concern with that last idea is that the rotel will crank up pretty loud making the front heights almost vanish because the onkyo won't be capable of keeping up with it.
What would you guys recommend i do? which set up do you think would sound better? i have attached a a picture of my set up so you can have an idea of my space and what i am working with. Please, any advice is appreciated :)
