    Default 3 or 5

    Iíve changed all my speakers from RTIís(8ohm) to lSIís(4ohm).
    LSI7-front
    LSIC-center
    LSIFX-surrond
    Denon-3803

    Iím considering buying a three-channel amp for the fronts and run the surrounds off the Denon,
    any obvious drawbacks to this idea? I figure this would take a lot of the load off the Denon , and I could probably pick up a three channel for less $ than a five.

    System used for HT, and music in stereo or prologic.

    I would believe that 3 would be more than fine. Give your situation that's what I would do. Actually I'd probably go with a number of stereo amps and use accordingly (left front & right surround, center & rear, etc).

    Only drawback I see is leaving three Denon ch's behind....

    Try three and bi-amp your front stage with the Denon and the outboard amp...

    An amp is a terrible thing to waste...

    Is there a sub in this picture?
