    Default Amp to go with my LSiM 703, and 706c speakers

    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering what would be a good amp to go with my LSim 703, and 706c speakers.
    I was considering emotiva xpa-3 but I'm not sure if there are better choices out there.
    I heard parasound make some good amps, but I am not looking to spend more than 700$.

    Yeah I have a pair of Axiom Audio QS8 for surround duty. I also have a vtf3-HO sub with the turbo, but I am considering getting MBM-12 MK2 Mid-Bass Module to go with it. I love base in my movies. System is 50/50 for movies and music.

    Thanks!! I want to get the best from them so I am looking at getting an amp for the front three. I don't think the surrounds really need one.

    I'm using the XPA-3 with the 703's. I'm driving the surrounds with a Marantz 7005. Very nice detailed sound. No complaints. Hard to go wrong at the sale price they are going for.

    Yeah I see the sale they are having right now...I was thinking about just using the BTL function on the onkyo, and getting a mono amplifier just for the CC. Outlaw audio has a mono amp for like 350$ that does 200 watts

    I'd do with a 5-channel amp, but that's just me. Who knows, one day you may end up with the matching LSiM702's!

    Lots of good 5-channel amps under or around 700 bucks. Parasound, Adcom, B&K, Rotel..
