I've had my RT5000 system for a few years now and I finally decided it was time to power them properly. After seeing some of the reviews for the Emotiva Ultra HT line, and the price, I decided to take the the plunge.
It hasn't arrived yet, but I'd like to be ready when it does. First I'll need some cables to connect the preouts to the amp. I was looking at http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2 these from monoprice, but 3ft seems a bit long. Any other good suggestions?
Also, the LPA-1 amp is described as follows: a Configurable power output as follows: 125 watts/8 ohms x 6 channels or 125 watts/8 ohms x 5 channels plus 2 x 50 watts/8 ohms x 2 channels.
Like I said, I have the RT5000 system, no subwoofer. How would you recommend I connect the speakers? The LPA's user manual says "When connecting the LPA-1 to drive a 7.1 system, you can use channels 1-5 for the
“Main” speakers as you wish, but Emotiva recommends using channels 6 and 7 as the “Rear Back” surround channels so that the power is distributed correctly in the room. This will yield the best results from the front L/C/R speakers and the main surround channels."
Using this setup, won't that mean that the rears (fx1000s) will get 50 watts each to power them? Will this give them enough juice?
