Itís been a while since Iíve posted here (although I read frequently) so I completely understand if no one responds to my questions. In fact, I feel a little selfish even asking because I havenít contributed anything of substance to this community in a year or two. So while I have no excuse(!), I can say with sincerity that anything I could have contributed would have either been better stated by someone else more knowledgeable OR I would have been flat-out wrong. The one thing I have going for me is at least Iím honest about it.
All that said, if anyone here has any questions regarding drumming or drum equipment (acoustic or electric), I will absolutely answer them for you.
On to my questionsÖ
I have been lusting over LSi7ís and LSi9ís for years. Literally. I just have never had a system that could drive them (my current receiver is a VSX-1121-K) nor could I afford one. My listening room is small. And I have neighbors. But as in playing my drums -- I do pick my spots.
I was wondering if I picked up a used NAD 2400 or an Adcom GFA-545 to power just my fronts on a 5.1 system Ė could these power the LSiís? I canít imagine ever playing music at full volume. And speaking of usage Ė I will use them for 50% music and 50% HT.
Also, say I were able to drive my two front channels with an older, external amp Ė do I lose the ability to process certain digital settings on my 1121 Ė such as DTS-HD Master Audio, for example? Or perhaps none of that relates here? (Now you see why I donít post here often.)
Lastly, if you do respond to my question, I humbly say thank you for your time and advise.
