Hello all HT Pros.
I'm new to HT and needless to say I'm instantly addicted. It's become an oppsession it's almost scary. I currently have RTi10's for fronts, CSIA6 center, RTIA3 for surrounds and a psw10 sub all powered by a Harman Kardon AVR247. I'm confused about adding an additional amplifier. My AVR is rated at 50watts/ch. Does that mean each speaker is receiving 50watts of power? My rti10s can handle up to 300watts. Does this mean they are only getting 50 watts and can handle 250 more. If I added an amplifier that was rated at for example 75watts per channel...would that mean that now the speakers would be getting 75 plus the 50 from the receiver for a total of 125 watts/ch? I'm confused on how it all works. Judging from the speakers I currently have, is it worth it for me to purchase an amp...will it knock my socks off with the difference it would make or am just hoping. Any recommendation for a multi channel amp I'm assuming for a reasonable price? Budget is an issue. Hope to here from someone soon...I caught the HT bug!!
